“But let me speak no more of this.  Words are not good for the secret meaning;  everything always becomes a little bit different the moment one speaks it aloud, a bit falsified, a bit foolish–yes, and this too is also very good and pleases me greatly:  that one person’s treasure and wisdom always sounds like foolishness to others.”

-Hesse  “Siddhartha”
