It hurts me that I have brought you trouble, forgive me. It’s all better again with me, my suffering was probably all my own imagination, and I feel again as I used to. I was really very ill, and it took all of my energy. But now I’m calm and well, and I feel alive again. So, now all is quiet around me…
As I lie on the sofa, freezing, I cover myself with your blanket that looks so regal and makes me proud.
Calm and serene.
We kiss you both.”
Rosa Luxemburg to her lover Kostja Zetkin, Friedenau, Berlin,14 February 1911.
