When we can see the cool moon laughing in secret
Over the faint countryside,
And we rest, hand in hand.

To be alone,

To study history means submitting to chaos and nevertheless retaining faith in order and meaning. It is a very serious task, young man, and possibly a tragic one.

by Hesse, in Italian: ''Io ti chiesi'' Io ti chiesi perché i tuoi occhi si soffermano nei miei come una casta stella del cielo in un oscuro flutto. Mi hai guardato a lungo come si saggia un bimbo con lo sguardo, mi hai detto poi, con gentilezza: ti voglio bene, perché sei tanto triste - Hermann Hesse
