Henry Newbolt - "The Playing Fields"

30.07.11

There’s a breathless hush in the Close tonight—
Ten to make and the match to win—
A bumping pitch and a blinding light,
An hour to play and the last man in.
And it’s not for the sake of a ribboned coat,
Or the selfish hope of a season’s fame,
But his captain’s hand on his shoulder smote
“Play up! Play up! And play the game!”


The sand of the desert is sodden red,
Red with the wreck of a square that broke;
The gatling’s jammed and the colonel dead
And the regiment blind with dust and smoke.
The river of death has brimmed his banks,
And England’s far, and Honor a name,
But the voice of a schoolboy rallies the ranks,
“Play up! Play up! And play the game!”


This is the word that year by year
While in her place the school is set
Every one of her sons must hear,
And none that hears it dare forget.
This they all with a joyful mind
Bear through life like a torch in flame,
And falling fling to the host behind—
“Play up! Play up! And play the game!”

 "Another researcher tells a similar story in the film. While spending the better part of a week working in the cave studying a series of images of lions, “every night I was dreaming of lions,” he tells us. “And every day was the same shock for me. It was an emotional shock. I mean, I am a scientist, but a human too.  And after five days I decided not to go back in the cave because I needed time just to relax and take time to absorb it.”

“And you dreamed not of paintings of lions but of real lions?” Herzog’s voice interjects into the film. “Of both!” the young archaeologist replies. “Of both, definitely.”

"Don't play the result."

30.07.11

"You know, there's a rule in acting called 'Don't play the result.' If you have a character who's going to end up in a certain place, don't play that until you get there. Play each scene and each beat as it comes. And that's what you do in your life: You don't play the result. So you get diagnosed with Parkinson's, and you can play the result. You can go right to, 'Oh, I'm sick.' It took me seven years to figure out that I'm not at the result. I'm not at the result till the end. So let's not play it. It's not written yet. And so that's the attitude I take in life. Another expression is 'Act as if. Act as if it's the way you want it to be, and it'll eventually morph into that."

Michael J. Fox
