Throughout history, cats have been worshipped as mystical gods and maligned as the evil allies of witchery and sin. But I think you’re the first person ever to see that they are in fact ridiculous. They’re silly and cuddly. And lonely. Frightened and brave. Like us.
Just remember, however hard things get, however much you feel like you’re struggling, the world is full of beauty. And it’s up to you to capture it. To look. And to share it with as many people as you can. You are a prism. Through which that beam of life refracts.[to Louis]
Sometimes I think about the day you won’t be here, and I have to say, Emily, I find it intolerably difficult to imagine.
I don’t make the world beautiful, Louis. The world is beautiful. And you’ve helped me to see that too.[Louis Wain: You make the world beautiful and warm and kind. I just wanted to say thank you for that before it’s too late.]
I don’t know why it is that I find it so very difficult just being here on this earth, but I can say with absolute certainty that you have made it much, much better.
Watch now on:
Electricity is what pushes us through time. We turn the past into the future with the power of our electricity. But that process is entirely reversible. Remembering the past is no different from imagining the future. And neither is different to life itself.
