! - - - - "Our Glass Bead Game combines all three principles: learning, veneration of the beautiful, and meditation; and therefore a proper Glass Bead Game player ought to be drenched in cheerfulness as a ripe fruit is drenched in its sweet juices. He ought above all to posess the cheerful serenity of music, for after all, music is nothing but an act of courage, a serene, smiling, striding forward and dancing through the terrors and flames of the world, the festive offering of a sacrifice." -- An excerpt from The Glass Bead Game, Hermann Hesse (c)1943 Fretz & Wasmuth Verlag AG Zurich (published as Das Glasperlenspiel) English translation (c)1969 Holt, Rinehart and Winston - - - - >
