"War is not an exercise of the will directed at an inanimate matter."
"I am intrigued by inanimate objects. They're a piece of history, someone's statement and ideas of life."
"Never fight an inanimate object."
"Forests, lakes, and rivers, clouds and winds, stars and flowers, stupendous glaciers and crystal snowflakes - every form of animate or inanimate existence, leaves its impress upon the soul of man."
