Hermann Hesse: “He Who Travels Far Will Often See Things”

Photographers Unknown, Parva Scaena (Brief Scenes): Set Five

“He who travels far will often see things
Far removed from what he believed was Truth.
When he talks about it in the fields at home,
He is often accused of lying,
For the obdurate people will not believe
What they do not see and distinctly feel.
Inexperience, I believe,
Will give little credence to my song.”

―Hermann Hesse, The Journey to the East
