Quote of the Day
The more often we see the things around us - even the beautiful and wonderful things - the more they become invisible to us. That is why we often take for granted the beauty of this world: the flowers, the trees, the birds, the clouds - even those we love. Because we see things so often, we see them less and less.
Joseph B. Wirthlin
Sense the blessings of the earth in the perfect arc of a ripe tangerine, the taste of warm, fresh bread, the circling flight of birds, the lavender color of the sky shining in a late afternoon rain puddle, the million times we pass other beings in our cars and shops and out among the trees without crashing, conflict, or harm.
Another thing I like to do is sit back and take in nature. To look at the birds, listen to their singing, go hiking, camping and jogging and running, walking along the beach, playing games and sometimes being alone with the great outdoors. It's very special to me.
No one is free, even the birds are chained to the sky.
I can find God in nature, in animals, in birds and the environment.
Much talking is the cause of danger. Silence is the means of avoiding misfortune. The talkative parrot is shut up in a cage. Other birds, without speech, fly freely about.
If you see the sunset, does it have to mean something? If you hear the birds singing does it have to have a message?
Use what talents you possess; the woods would be very silent if no birds sang there except those that sang best.
Henry Van Dyke
It is a matter of shame that in the morning the birds should be awake earlier than you.
How did it happen that their lips came together? How does it happen that birds sing, that snow melts, that the rose unfolds, that the dawn whitens behind the stark shapes of trees on the quivering summit of the hill? A kiss, and all was said.
It is not only fine feathers that make fine birds.
Birds have wings; they're free; they can fly where they want when they want. They have the kind of mobility many people envy.
Roger Tory Peterson
Birds are a miracle because they prove to us there is a finer, simpler state of being which we may strive to attain.
Birds born in cages think that flying is a disease.
Yes sir, I am a tortured man for all seasons, as they say, and I have powerful friends in high places. Birds sing where I walk, and children smile when they see me coming.
Hunter S. Thompson
I spent a lot of money on booze, birds and fast cars. The rest I just squandered.
Even the dullest bird or face becomes interesting when you give it a good look in the wild/flesh. The way the shadow drops across the cheek, the light hits an eyebrow, etc... there are many more angles, positions etc. than you can ever imagine. My heart always makes a little jump when I see things in birds or faces that surprise me.
Birds sing after a storm; why shouldn't people feel as free to delight in whatever sunlight remains to them?
I think penguins are the most human of all the birds, which may be why people love them. They're cute, they stand upright and they look like they're wearing tuxedos.
People commonly travel the world over to see rivers and mountains, new stars, garish birds, freak fish, grotesque breeds of human; they fall into an animal stupor that gapes at existence and they think they have seen something.
What a kid I got, I told him about the birds and the bee and he told me about the butcher and my wife.
Since childhood she had walked the Devon rivers with her father looking for flowers and the nests of birds, passing some rocks and trees as old friends, seeing a Spirit everywhere, gentle in thought to all her eyes beheld.
One must ask children and birds how cherries and strawberries taste.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
The desire to fly is an idea handed down to us by our ancestors who... looked enviously on the birds soaring freely through space... on the infinite highway of the air.
It's just a job. Grass grows, birds fly, waves pound the sand. I beat people up.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Martin Luther King, Jr.
