Quotation by Henrik Ibsen:

Castles in the air - they are so easy to take refuge in. And so easy to build too.

Henrik Ibsen     (more by this author)

1828-1906 (Age at death: 78 approx.)

Henrik Johan Ibsen (Norwegian pronunciation: [ˈhɛnɾɪk ˈɪpsən]; 20 March 1828 – 23 May 1906) was a major 19th-century Norwegian playwright, theatre director, and poet. He is often referred to as the "father of modern drama" and is one of the founders of Modernism in the theatre.[1] His plays were considered scandalous to many of his era, when Victorian values of family life and propriety largely held sway in Europe. Ibsen's work examined the realities that lay behind many facades, possessing a revelatory nature that was disquieting to many contemporaries. It utilized a critical eye and free inquiry into the conditions of life and issues of morality. Ibsen is often ranked as one of the truly great playwrights in the European tradition, alongside such other notable playwrights as Sophocles, William Shakespeare, and Molière.(Wikipedia)
