Hey Arturo I just noticed your comment about the quote on my blog- it's from Hermann Hesse's Steppenwolf- a glorious book I must say. Here's another: "..the bourgeois today burns as heretics and hangs as criminals those to whom he erects monuments tomorrow"
I just finished Daniel Quinn's Ishmael- another powerful novel.

Hesse is one of my favorite writers. He is able to deeply connect universal issues with everyday experiences that all can relate to, assuming we are honest with ourselves. Siddhartha, Narcissus and Goldmund, The Glass Bead Game and Demian (among his very many books) are the ones that stand in my mind because they actually changed my life in some significant ways, as any good work of art should.
That said, my personal favorite writer has to be Borges.
