Everyone goes to the forest; some go for a walk to be inspired, and others go to cut down the trees.
If you trust in Nature, in the small Things that hardly anyone sees and that can so suddenly become huge, immeasurable; if you have this love for what is humble and try very simply, as someone who serves, to win the confidence of what seems poor, then everything will become easier for you.
Rainer Maria Rilke
SANDY "What was that? What was that?"
DORRIE "Hey, that's so pretty. A pigeon!"
SANDY "Geez...no, it's not pretty at all. They're...they're...they're rats with wings."
DORRIE "They're wonderful. No! It's probably a good omen. It'll bring us good luck."
SANDY "No...no, get it out of here. It's probably one of those killer pigeons."
DORRIE "No, get something for it to eat. We can coax it down! What are you doing? Hey, wait!"
SANDY "You see, it's got a swastika under its wings."
DORRIE "It's wonderful. Not that.”
SANDY "I just...I just want to guide it out of the apartment. Geez. I don't want a winged thing in my house."
From the film, Stardust Memories. Woody Allen and Charlotte Rampling, 1980
It is no longer sufficient to describe the world of nature. The point is to defend it.
