Всю прошлую неделю у меня было паршивое настроение. Я все возвращалась и возвращалась ко многим событиям и никак не могла понять некоторых людей. С каждым разом я не продвигалась в своем понимании ни на миллиметрик(. Надо было как-то с этим бороться. И я стала думать про единорогов. Не знаю почему именно про них - это просто первое, что пришло тогда в голову. Помогло. А теперь уже и все прошло. Так просто.
Но я все равно еще думаю о единорогах. Иногда. Это лучше, чем перекручивать в голове, перемалывать, пытаться узакономерить... в чужую голову не залезешь. Лучше уж сказки.
А the last unicorn - один из любимых мультиков детства (книжку, к сожалению, не читала). Он красивый, тонкий и довольно грустный...
No, no, listen. Don't listen to me, listen.
I have forgotten that men cannot see Unicorns. If men no longer know what they're looking at, there may be other unicorns in the world yet, unknown. I'm glad of it.
Who am I? Why am I here? What is it that I'm searching for in this strange place, day after day?
I know you. If I were blind I'd know what you are.
Schmendrick: Don't cry. If you have become human enough to cry, then all the magic in the world cannot change you back.
There are no happy endings because nothing ends.
You may come and go as you please. My secrets guard themselves. Will yours do the same?
The Cat: No cat anywhere ever gave anyone a straight answer.
Heroes know that things must happen when it is time for them to happen. A quest may not simply be abandoned; unicorns may go unrescued for a long time, but not forever; a happy ending cannot come in the middle of the story.
"I did not know that I was so empty, to be so full."
"We are not always what we seem, and hardly ever what we dream."
"You are losing my interest and that is very dangerous. In a moment I will have forgotten you quite entirely, and will never be able to remember just what I did with you. What I forget not only ceases to exist, but never really existed in the first place."
"That is most of it, being a wizard--seeing and listening. The rest is technique."
"It's really not so good to have time. Rush, scramble, desperation, this missed, that left behind, those others too big to fit into such a small space--that's the way life was meant to be. You're supposed to be too late for some things. Don't worry about it."
"I think I understand, but I'm sure I don't"
"...you are truly human now. You can love, and fear, and forbid things to be what they are, and overact."
"That is true. You are a man, and men can do nothing that makes any difference."
"Great heroes need great sorrows and burdens, or half their greatness goes unnoticed."
"Who has choices need not choose.
We must, who have none.
We can love but what we lose--
What is gone is gone."
I can never regret. I can feel sorrow, but it's not the same thing.
I am no longer like the others, for no unicorn was ever born who could regret, but now I do. I regret.
