"An idea occurred to me. Subject for a short story; a young girl like you lives all her life beside a lake; she loves the lake like a seagull, and like a seagull, is happy and free. A man comes along by chance, sees her, and having nothing better to do, destroys her, just like this sea gull here."
The Sea Gull, Anton Chekhov
