"The bird fights its way out of the egg. The egg is the world. Whoever wants to be born must first destroy a world. " - Hermann Hesse, Demian: The Story of Emil Sinclair's Youth (1919) #IU #TheProducers
('Demian' - Hermann Hesse): "'It is always hard to be born. You know, it is not without effort that the bird comes out of the egg. Look back and ask yourself: Was the way then so hard?-only hard? Was it not beautiful as well? Could you have had one more beautiful, more easy?'"
