The Page Revisited


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
