Water!, Oh Heavens!”, said a duck when it could no longer fly
This proverb can be woven into conversation, by way of exclamation, to highlight a situation where there seems to be no way out.
When a duck in the air realizes it´s no longer able to fly, its options are not many. The best it can hope for is water – to make a soft landing.
a gate wide open
moving forward with courage
toward the unknown
Well, fuck a duck.
― Henry Miller, Tropic of Cancer
