Wandering Wisdoms: V.1

“To me too has not unrest been ordained, have not I too been endowed with a heart which knoweth not repose? The story-teller’s star — is it not the moon, lord of the road, the wanderer, who moves in his stations, one after another, freeing himself from each? For the story-teller makes many a station, roving and relating, but pauses only tentwise, awaiting further directions, and soon feels his heart beating high, partly with desire, partly too from fear and anguish of the flesh, but in any case as a sign that he must take the road, towards fresh adventures which are to be painstakingly lived through, down to their remotest details, according to the restless spirit’s will.”

— Thomas Mann, Joseph and His Brothers
