From The Duck Variations, by David Mamet:
The mating of ducks is a private matter between the duck in question and his mate.
It is a thing which few White men have witnessed… And those who claim to have seen it… strangely do not wish to speak.
There are things we’re better off not to know.
If you don’t know, you never can be forced to tell.
They don’t got those beaks for nothing.
Nothing is for nothing.
Everthing has got a purpose.
What I love about this play is how a discussion about ducks moves seamlessly into a discussion about life. Two men talk about boats and pollution and nature and friendship; it’s everyday talk, but somehow more.
