examples of Socrates Voice over

What happens when horses die? Do we go to heaven to walk forever on silver dew?

Mother Horse always bit my thighs for asking questions. She said, a horse can have only one quality: strength. A horse has no right to create thinking.

(Socrates is shot, but not in the head but in stomach, i.e. he is wounded)

People kill horses. They kill them due to a broken leg or due to be eaten as food. But I am being killed due to love of a human named Anfisa.

I am sorry, Anfisa. I’m coming to you... It will just take time.

We’ve always been connected correctly, Anfisa, ever since we were born in one and the same village called Socialism.
