True Action by Tina Roth Eisenberg:

> “True action, good and radiant action, my friends, does not spring from activity, from busy bustling, it does not spring from industrious hammering. It grows in the solitude of the mountains, it grows on the summits where silence and danger dwell.”
Hermann Hesse

I cannot find the source of this quote. Maybe it’s his 1946 anthology If the War Goes On… (public library).
