Let everything that’s been planned come true. Let them believe.

Stalker:

“Let everything that’s been planned come true. Let them believe. And let them have a laugh at their passions. Because what they call passion actually is not some emotional energy, but just the friction between their souls and the outside world. And most important, let them believe in themselves. Let them be helpless like children, because weakness is a great thing, and strength is nothing. When a man is just born, he is weak and flexible. When he dies, he is hard and insensitive. When a tree is growing, it’s tender and pliant. But when it’s dry and hard, it dies. Hardness and strength are death’s companions. Pliancy and weakness are expressions of the freshness of being. Because what has hardened will never win.”



„Neka se ostvari sve što je planirano. Neka poveruju. I neka se ismevaju nad svojim strastima. Jer, to što nazivaju strašću nije duševna energija...

...već samo trenje između duše i spoljnog sveta.

I najvažnije,  neka veruju u sebe...
...neka se osećaju  bespomoćno, kao deca, jer...
...slabost je velika stvar,
a snaga je ništa.


Kada se čovek rodi,  on je slab i gibak...
...a kad umire,  čvrst je i bezosećajan.
Kada drvo raste,  nežno je i savitljivo... 
...ali kada je suvo i tvrdo, umire.

Tvrdoća i snaga su saputnici smrti.  Gipkost i slabost su izraz svežine postojanja.  Jer, nešto što je očvrsnulo,  nikada neće pobediti.”
