Many have asked about the speech or quote near the end of Day & Night. It’s the only dialogue in the short and that makes it even more powerful. According to director Teddy Newton, the quote is from Dr. Wayne Dyer and comes from a 1970’s lecture. Teddy further elaborated that many of the themes from the quote date back to a similar speech by Albert Einstein. Here’s the quote:
Fear of the unknown.
They are afraid of new ideas.
They are loaded with prejudices, not based upon anything in reality, but based on… if something is new, I reject it immediately because it’s frightening to me. What they do instead is just stay with the familiar.
You know, to me, the most beautiful things in all the universe, are the most mysterious.
