That reminds me of the scene in 'Roxanne' (w/ Steve Martin and Daryl Hannah), and the young rookie firefighter who joins the squad is taken aside and gently warned, he is really sensitive about his nose. Don't say anything, and whatever you do, don't catch him staring at it!!!
And of course, having been told not what to do, the young man is mesmerised by Steve Martin's character's nose and comedy ensues.
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
