…” When in the flea market I take an old lamp in my hands, I can’t help wondering why the master formed its socket to last for 200 years, even though he had only 30 left – and today why doesn’t this attitude permeate the world.
I just simply cannot live my life among modern newly constructed things.
The old things are around me to fill me up with the spirit they preserve – so that my movements may then be as temporal as a jingle of a melody, a step of a dance or a sip of wine – have such effects as the old masters’ works, which are able to prove the importance of our being here. “…
