Quote of the Day
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
Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die, life is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly.
Intelligence without ambition is a bird without wings.
Faith is the bird that feels the light when the dawn is still dark.
I am no bird; and no net ensnares me; I am a free human being with an independent will.
It's impossible to explain creativity. It's like asking a bird, 'How do you fly?' You just do.
Eric Jerome Dickey

A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
No bird soars too high if he soars with his own wings.

Franklin D. Roosevelt

The early bird gets the worm. The early worm... gets eaten.
Norman Ralph Augustine
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
Be as a bird perched on a frail branch that she feels bending beneath her, still she sings away all the same, knowing she has wings.
When you have shot one bird flying you have shot all birds flying. They are all different and they fly in different ways but the sensation is the same and the last one is as good as the first.
The bird a nest, the spider a web, man friendship.
A forest bird never wants a cage.
If it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, we have at least to consider the possibility that we have a small aquatic bird of the family anatidae on our hands.
A leaf fluttered in through the window this morning, as if supported by the rays of the sun, a bird settled on the fire escape, joy in the task of coffee, joy accompanied me as I walked.
Man can now fly in the air like a bird, swim under the ocean like a fish, he can burrow into the ground like a mole. Now if only he could walk the earth like a man, this would be paradise.

e. e. cummings
