"I once said, perhaps rightly: The earlier culture will become a heap of rubble and finally a heap of ashes, but spirits will hover over the ashes." p. 3e

Subject: [Wittrs] Wittgenstein - looking for a quote
I am looking for a quote from Wittgenstein's "Culture and Value". I have
the book in Polish but I need this quote to be in English and I don't have
any access to it. The phrase I am looking for is the second paragraph
written during the year 1930 and it should be something like this (my own
translation follows): "I have said once, probably without an error: from the
earlier culture only ruins and dashes will remain, but there will be ghosts
over this dashes".
Thank you for your help. With kind regards,
