“I might be a beast astray, with no sense of its environment, with no sense of its environment, yet there was some meaning in my foolish life, something in me gave an answer and was the receiver of those distant calls from worlds far above. In my brain were stored a thousand pictures:

“Giotto’s flock of angels from the blue vaulting of a little church in Padua…and there stood Gianozzo, the aeronaut, in his burning balloon and blew a blast on his horn, Attila carrying his new headgear in his hand, and the Borobudur reared its soaring sculpture in the air.”

Steppenwolf, Hermann Hesse
