When you fill up your soul with the old, you leave no more space for the new.

I‘m a bit torn about this one. I thought it was pretty good, one of the better Classics I‘ve read, but would I have liked it if I wasn‘t looking for connections and symbolism to BTS? Maybe, maybe not. Thank goodness I didn‘t have to read when I was in school though. #demian #bts #bloodsweatandtears #hetoowasatempter

Kaye Can you tell me what dim sum is ? We don‘t have anything like that here in Hillbilly Village. Somedays we have a DIM SUN in the winter but I don‘t think that‘s the same thing. 1y
2BR02B @Kaye 🤣 You're too funny! Dim sum are like Cantonese appetizers or tapas. A dim sum course can include a variety of dishes, but I particularly enjoy steamed buns (bao) and dumplings (jiaozi). 1y
Kaye I believe I‘m missing out on a whole world of foods. We just eat meat loaf, mashed potatoes and cake. I bet no one in my town would now what dim sum is. We all know what meat loaf is though. 1y

i chose this book because it has a meaning behind it that i'm interested in. and because of a group that remade this book into music and skits, it made me want to read its original story telling theory that i'd wanna know what's the story about and how it can bring inspiration that it's used by this group i love. #san_3H

I realize today that nothing in the world is more distasteful to a man than to take the path that leads to himself.

mfw I reach my #readinggoals. I read 116/100 in 2016 (tagged the first book I finished last year). Aiming for 80 in 2017, will up the ante if I get ahead.

mydearwatson That was one of my favorite parts of elementary school 😂. 3y

Each of us has to find out for himself what is permitted and what is forbidden — forbidden for him. It's possible for one never to transgress a single law and still be a bastard. And vice versa.

Maar ieder mens is niet alleen hij zelf, hij is ook het unieke, zeer bijzondere, in elk geval belangrijke en merkwaardige punt, waar de verschijnselen van de wereld elkaar kruisen, slechts eenmaal op die manier en nooit weer. Daarom is de geschiedenis van ieder mens belangrijk, eeuwig, goddelijk, daarom is ieder mens, zolang hij maar leeft en de wil van de natuur vervult, wonderbaarlijk en alle aandacht waard.

I absolutely loved it! An amazing book about a journey of self-discovery, getting rid of societal norms and a critique to conformism. This is my first book by Herman Hesse, but after this I will definately check out some of his other works.

ApoptyGina69 I read him a lot in the 1980s. Demian was my first! 3y

bookloversnevergotobedalone I read this back in college, decades ago, I need to reread to see if I still enjoy it as much now. 3y
ReadingOver50 Yes I read this in high school and really enjoyed it 😄 3y

If you hate a person, you hate something in him that is part of yourself. What isn't part of ourselves doesn't disturb us.

MrBook Interesting thought. 3y
