Igne Natura Renovatur Integra

Rating position

What we have inherited from our fathers and mothers is not all that ‘walks in us.’ There are all sorts of dead ideas and lifeless old beliefs. They have no tangibility, but they haunt us all the same and we can not get rid of them. Whenever I take up a newspaper I seem to see Ghosts gliding between the lines. Ghosts must be all over the country, as thick as the sands of the sea.
-Ghosts, Henrik Ibsen

"Yesterday, late in the evening, I saw a white rose. They say that white flowers are for the dead - but death, love, and youth are one.. (The dead, as long as they really do live on in us, just live more clearly as images of the brightness of youth!) And so the white rose is already a symbol of eternal youth, in its fragrance and in its tender pureness."
-F. Rook, in a letter to Lilo Ramdohr, 1941
