"Strange as it seems, the basic shape of a fern can be captured in a simple
stick drawing.  To make a fern of curving, intricate complexity, all that is
required is the simple shape, and a few basic rules.  The only rules are that
the stick shape is free to repeat itself at many different levels of scale,
that it is placed in an upright direction, and that it connects with what is
already on the page.

From this combination of a few simple rules and high levels of autonomy - of
order and chaos working in tandem - emerges the beautiful complexity of a

"Come the sun
See it run
Across the sky
Cosmic eye
Is for you
And no one else...

Tree wizard Puretongue
The digger of holes
The Swan King
The Elf Lord
The Eater of Souls
Lithon the Black
The rider of stars
Tyrannosaurus Rex
The Eater of Cars"

"'No, no, let us play, for it is yet day,
    And we cannot go to sleep;
Besides, in the sky the little birds fly,
    And the hills are all covered with sheep.'
'Well, well, go and play till the light fades away,
    And then go home to bed.'
The little ones leaped, and shouted, and laughed,
    And all the hills echoed."

"Thus it is agreed by the great sages that the phoenix, when she approaches her
five-hundredth year, dies and then is born again; in her lifetime she feeds
neither on herbs nor grain, but only on tears of frankincense and of balsam,
and nard and myrrh are her last winding-sheet.  And as one that falls, not
knowing how, by force of a devil dragging him to the ground or by some vital
obstruction that blinds a man, and when he rises stares about him all
bewildered with the great anguish he has suffered, and sighs as he looks; such
was the sinner when he rose.  Ah, the power of God, how stern it is, pouring
forth such strokes for vengeance!"

"Several of nature's people 
I know, and they know me; 
I feel for them a transport 
Of cordiality;

But never met this fellow, 
Attended or alone, 
Without a tighter breathing, 
And zero at the bone."

"Godard wrote: 'There are no more simple images... The whole world is too much
for an image.  You need several of them, a chain of images...'  Accordingly,
Godard always uses multiple images, images cross-dissolved together, coming
together and separating.  The electronic mixing that replaces both temporal
montage and montage within the shot becomes for Godard an appropriate technique
to visualize this 'vague and complicated system that the whole world is
continually entering and watching.'"
