The Page Revisited

siddhartha4

He saw businessmen trading,princes going to the hunt,mourners weeping over their dead,prostitutes offering themselves,doctors attending the sick,priests deciding the day for sowing,lovers making love,mothers soothing their children; and all were not worth a passing glance,everything lied-stank of lies;they were all illusions of sense,happiness and beauty.All were doomed to decay.The world tasted bitter.Life was pain.

-from Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse
