Don’t you understand?

from “My Friend Flicka” 1943:

“Don’t you understand, Ken?

If a person or an animal finds love it’s the same as finding safety.

It’s comfort and friendliness and help.

Everyone longs for it.

And if Flicka’s found it, and yet doesn’t have sense enough to know she’s found it, and goes around being crazy and silly with fear, then … she’d be loco.”
