Be Completely Still
“You have to be completely still. A glowing cigarette stub, expanding its light far away, can bring death. A hedgehog, moving through the nightly forest, can threaten you to death. Your eyes and ears filter even the smallest piece of noise. It might happen that you shoot your comrade because you forgot he went to defecate. Your heart beats heavily and the brain cannot recall anything apart from the fear.” — Former soldier
