The glory and victory of war for one nation is grief and devastation for another. Though at times arguably necessary, once one form of violence is accepted and justified the floodgates are opened and the reverberations flow into a never-ending vicious cycle.
Julie Taymor, Introduction to the Titis Andronicus (the movie)

Now summer is gone.
And might never have been.
In the sunshine it’s warm.
But there has to be more.

It all came to pass,
All fell into my hands
Like a five-petalled leaf,
But there has to be more.

Nothing evil was lost,
Nothing good was in vain,
All ablaze with clear light
But there has to be more.

Life gathered me up
Safe under its wing,
My luck always held,
But there has to be more.

Not a leaf was burnt up
Not a twig ever snapped …
Clean as glass is the day,
But there has to be more
Stalker (the movie)

In these days of wars and rumors of wars – haven’t you ever dreamed of a place where there was peace and security, where living was not a struggle but a lasting delight?

There is something about yourself that you don’t know. Something that you will deny even exists until it’s too late to do anything about it. It’s the only reason you get up in the morning, the only reason you suffer the shitty boss, the blood, the sweat and the tears. This is because you want people to know how good, attractive, generous, funny, wild and clever you really are. (…) We’re approval junkies. We’re all in it for the slap on the back and the gold watch. The “hip, hip, hoo-fucking-rah.” Look at the clever boy with the badge, polishing his trophy. Shine on, you crazy diamond. Cos we’re just monkeys wrapped in suits, begging for the approval of others.

This great evil. Where does it come from? How’d it steal into the world? What seed, what root did it grow from? Who’s doin’ this? Who’s killin’ us? Robbing us of life and light. Mockin’ us with the sight of what we might’ve known. Does our ruin benefit the earth? Does it help the grass to grow, the sun to shine? Is this darkness in you, too? Have you passed through this night?

No, physical force is always better with nazis. Cos it’s hard to satirize a guy with shiny boots.

This city is afraid of me. I see its true face. The streets are extended of the gutter, filled with blood. And if the drain becomes clogged, drown them all. The accumulated dirt from their dirty deedswill opschuimen their belly …and all the whores and politicians will cry: ‘Help us’. And I’ll whisper no. The world ison the edge of the abyss.
