The Thorn Birds movie 34 | We know we understand and still we do it

Quotes from film part 34

My Meggie. I knew you'd forgive me. I knew. All your life I've watched you wage your battles against God. Yet you were always closer to his desires for us than I. In the end you've always been able to love. For all you've lost you've never lost that. Somewhere in me I must have known from the very first that Dane was mine. But I didn't want to know. I wanted to be Cardinal de Bricassart more than I wanted our son. More than I wanted you. Of all the wrong I've done the worst is that I never made a choice for love. Half given to you, half given to God but really given to my own ambition. I knew it and I did it anyway. I told myself it was meant to be. Long ago I told you a story, a legend about a bird that sings only when it dies. The bird with the thorn in its breast. You said it pays its life for that one song. But the whole world stills to listen. And God in his Heaven smiles. Driven to the thorn, with no knowledge of the dying to come. When we press the thorn to our breast we know we understand and still we do it.
   
I knew you'd forgive me
I knew you'd forgive me
 
In the end you've always been able to love
In the end you've always been able to love
 
I wanted to be Cardinal de Bricassart more than I wanted our son
I wanted to be Cardinal de Bricassart more than I wanted our son
