The Sigh of the Seeker of Knowledge.

"Oh, my covetousness!  In this soul there is no disinterestedness but an all-desiring self, which, by means of many individuals, would fain see as with its own eyes, and grasp as with its own hands a self bringing back even the entire past, and wanting to lose nothing that could in any way belong to it!  Oh, this flame of my covetousness!  Oh, that I were reincarnated in a hundred individuals!  "He who does not know this sigh by experience, does not know the passion of the seeker of knowledge either.
