This morning for more than an hour I failed to see a lesser spotted woodpecker.

In the sweaty heat of the day for two hours I failed to see a honey buzzard.

Tonight for almost an hour I failed to see an otter, until the downpour and the lightning, which started in my heart, drove me away.

There are many animals that can express their happiness, but only the human animal has the genius to express a magnificent sadness.
