“All life is figured by
them as a Tree. Igdrasil, the Ash-tree of existence, has its roots
deep-down in the kingdoms of Death: its trunk reaches up heaven-high,
spreads its boughs over the whole Universe: it is the Tree of Existence.
At the foot of it, in the Death-Kingdom, sit the three Fates – the
Past, Present and Future; watering its roots from the Sacred Well. It’s
“bough,” with their buddings and disleafings, – events, things
suffered, things done, catastrophes – stretch through all lands and
times. Is not every leaf of it a biography, every fiber there an act or
word? Its boughs are the Histories of Nations. The rustle of it is
the noise of Human Existence, onwards from of old. I find no similitude so true as this of a Tree. Beautiful; altogether beautiful and great."
- Thomas Carlyle
