We have to admit—this book makes us want to go down the river on a raft. Possibly for the rest of our lives. But it's not just because the river is tranquil, soothing, and the best place to chill beverages a cooler fits perfectly in an inner-tube. It's because, after reading Siddhartha, we have a hard time not thinking of rivers as wellsprings of ancient wisdom about the fleeting passage of time. In a good way. The river is a central symbol in Siddhartha , representing unity and the eternity of all things in the universe.
Siddhartha walked through the forest, was already far from the city, and knew nothing but that one thing, that there was no going back for him, that this life, as he had lived it for many years until now, was over and done away with, and that he had tasted all of it, sucked everything out of it until he was disgusted with it.

Quote 1: "[Siddhartha] had begun to feel that the love of his father and mother, and also the love of his friend Govinda, would not always make him happy, give him peace, satisfy and suffice him. He had begun to suspect that his worthy father and his other teachers, the wise Brahmins, had already passed on to him the bulk and best of their wisdom [but] his soul was not at peace. Quote 2: "Was Atman then not within him? Was not then the source within his own heart? One must find the source within one's own Self, one must possess it.
