Each human represents a unique and valuable experiment
on the part of nature . . . the very special and always significant and
remarkable point at which the world's phenomena intersect, only once in this
way and never again.
That is why every story is important, eternal, sacred;
that is why every [person] as long as [he or she] lives and fulfills the will
of nature is wondrous and worthy of every consideration. In each individual the
spirit has become flesh, in each the creation suffers, within each one a
redeemer is nailed to the cross.
Each life represents a road toward him( or her)self , an
attempt at such a road, the intimation of a path. No one has ever been entirely and completely them self. Yet each one strives to become that — one in an awkward, the other in a
more intelligent way, each as best they can.
–From the Prologue to Demian, by Hermann Hesse
