Quote of the Day
No bird soars too high if he soars with his own wings.
Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die, life is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly.
It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad.
C. S. Lewis
Just as the bird sings or the butterfly soars, because it is his natural characteristic, so the artist works.
Faith is the bird that feels the light when the dawn is still dark.
Intelligence without ambition is a bird without wings.
I am no bird; and no net ensnares me; I am a free human being with an independent will.

Franklin D. Roosevelt

It's best to have failure happen early in life. It wakes up the Phoenix bird in you so you rise from the ashes.
The bird is powered by its own life and by its motivation.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
I never saw a wild thing sorry for itself. A small bird will drop frozen dead from a bough without ever having felt sorry for itself.
D. H. Lawrence
The human bird shall take his first flight, filling the world with amazement, all writings with his fame, and bringing eternal glory to the nest whence he sprang.
Leonardo da Vinci
The greatest achievement was at first and for a time a dream. The oak sleeps in the acorn, the bird waits in the egg, and in the highest vision of the soul a waking angel stirs. Dreams are the seedlings of realities.
London is a roost for every bird.
When I see a bird that walks like a duck and swims like a duck and quacks like a duck, I call that bird a duck.
James Whitcomb Riley
A forest bird never wants a cage.
My room is like an antique shop, full of junk, and weird stuff. There's a big sword in there. And a taxidermy bird, and a couple of birdcages. And a lot of newspaper cuttings. I used to have a weird thing about cutting out morbid headlines from newspapers, and collecting them. I was fascinated with drowning, which is kind of strange.
