Book Report: Siddhartha

I don't have much to talk about. I started reading Siddhartha, by Hermann Hesse, last year after I stole it from my mom. I remember reading parts of it in high school and it's a thought-provoking story. But my brain is full so all I have is this quote:

I have had many thoughts, but it would be difficult for me to tell you about them. But this is one thought that has impressed me, Govinda. Wisdom is not communicable. The wisdom which a wise man tries to communicate always sounds foolish. (p. 142)

Maybe that's why nobody in DC listens to Paul Krugman?
