Quotes from Niels Arestrup's Characters

    • Grandfather:
      Maybe there are different ways to be brave. Did you know the French have the best carrier pigeons? And this could be the difference in the war - our messages getting through.
    • Emilie:
      I don't want to hear about the birds.
    • Grandfather:
      They are released at the front and told to go home - this is all they know. But to get there they must fly over war. Can you imagine such a thing? Here you are flying over so much pain and terror - and you know you can never look down. You have to look forward or you'll never get home. I ask you - what could be braver than that?

There are released from the front and told to go home. This is all they know. But to get there they must fly over a war. It's like... you are flying over so much pain and terror... and you know you can never look down. You have to look forward, or you'll never get home. I ask you, what could be braver than that?
