Cheers,
Atenea

maybe this is it... Feb 3, 2004

"Rustschuk, an der unteren Donau, wo ich zur Welt kam, war eine wunderbare Stadt für ein Kind. [...] Alles was ich später erlebt habe, war in Rustschuk schon einmal geschehen."(5) Und dann: "Ich kann nur eines mit Sicherheit sagen: die Ereignisse jener Jahre sind mir in aller Kraft und Frische gegenwärtig - mehr als sechzig Jahre habe ich mich von ihnen genährt.

(5) Elias Canetti: Die gerettete Zunge. Geschichte einer Jugend. München 1977, S. 10-11.
(6) Ebd., S. 19.
