"Every age, every culture, every custom and tradition has its own character,
its own weakness and its own strength, its beauties and ugliness; accepts
certain sufferings as matter of course, puts up patiently with certain
evils. Human life is reduced to real suffering, to hell, only when two ages,
two cultures and religions overlap. (...) Now there are times when a whole
generation is caught in this way between two ages, two modes of life, with
the consequence that it loses all power to understand itself and has no
standard, no security, no simple acquiescence."

Herman Hesse, Steppenwolf
