Ropke: Like Mildew

“Thus boredom spreads like mildew over all the places left vacant by the disappearance of those graces, dignities, and things which were genuine, natural, which warmed the heart of man. One of them is love, which the sexual obsession of our times is stripping of its tenderness and poetry and which, like so much else, ends up on the great cinder heap of boredom.”

– Wilhem Röpke, A Humane Economy (p. 87)
