Welcome to Day 2 of my 3 Days 3 Quotes Tag and may I say it is super weird posting something the next day after another. So to clarify for those who havn’t read the first day. A quick refresher:
- Thank the person who nominated you. (Thanks to Yomu for this one)
- Post three quotes on three consecutive days.
- Nominate three bloggers to do the same.
Now, with that out of the way, let’s get on with quote number 2.
“When mankind falls into conflict with nature, Monsters are born.”
– Professor Hayashida (The Return of Godzilla 1985)
How long has it been since Godzilla made an appearence on this blog? I say TOO LONG, so he gets his own quote. This quote is from the 1985 reboot/sequel to the original 1954 movie that gave the series a new lease of life and ushered in the Heisei era of films. Why did I pick this quote? Well it’s because its a surprisingly real quote that resonates with my own views. This quote describes how humans and their dominance over nature and the world can really have repercussions for us all. Godzilla, especially in his early years, is the embodiment of this idea, the concept of nature being disrupted by human activity and nature taking revenge. Conflict with nature is everywhere today, between deforestation, pollution and poaching, and while these things may not create real life monsters, it can create unseen threats. If such things are allowed to continue, then the real monster will be the complete and utter devastation of nature and the natural order. Ok so while that was a little depressing, I want to end this on a more humorous note. When you watch Godzilla backwards its a story about a kind hearted dinosaur rebuilding a destroyed city and moonwalking across the world.
With that we end day 2. We’re in the final stretch now, just one day left before this tag ends. I think for todays nomination I’ll nominate Scott, I can see all those mecha anime generating some pretty amazing quotes for this one.
