"I surrender to my inability to comprehend the ultimate meaning of life, but I am willing to sense it, even if it requires sacrificing myself. You cannot force this faith on anyone, not even yourself, but it can become experience. The absence of this felt faith is usually replaced by beliefs in a church or in science or in patriotism or socialism, some kind of refuge where conventional moralities, conformist programs and standardized recipes are dispersed. Certified affiliations, lifelong membership cards to organize social structures guarantee a false comfort, the illusion of security, the illusionary ticket to salvation."

~Hermann Hesse

From the book: The Seasons of the Soul
