Agota Lukytė: They are following us, they are just silent

Doctor: I fall on you and I see all these things… The roots, the shrubs… Have you ever thought that plants might feel, that they are conscious, that they understand even… The trees, hazel…

Marushka: This is an alder.

Doctor: No importance. They are there, they are not rushing anywhere. It is us who are running, hurrying talking banalities. Because the nature that is in us, we don’t want to rely on it.

(Dialogue from a movie “Mirror”, 1975 by A.Tarkovsky)
