It absolutely relates and applies to the adoration and reverence I hold - in particularly - for horses, but is not in this instance the direct reason.Red Bird wrote:Omoksha wrote:Vigor by way of precision. Precision can also be poetry.....Many animals have an exquisite sensitivity that we don’t work hard enough to understand....It’s as if our own sensitivity were split in half: our joy and our pain both extended.
- Robert Bresson
A very meaningful quotation indeed.
I wonder if your profile picture has anything to do with why you chose it. Because when it comes to the sensitivity of animals the horse would be a perfect example.
I think that in many respects, the essence of how Robert Bresson wrote can be summed up within all that can be taken from this one quote. The sensitivity he refers to here is absolutely present in his writing, and although here he separates it from humanity, his writing takes the human experience back to that which we have lost by way of our denial of nature, and reconnects us to this sensitivity that he speaks of animals having.
What one can take from the way he wrote and filmed is equal, if not more from what one can take from his writing and films themselves.
