The eagle has no fear of adversity. We need to be like the eagle and have a fearless spirit of a conqueror!
There is an eagle in me that wants to soar, and there is a hippopotamus in me that wants to wallow in the mud.
I am also the product of a place called Paint Creek. Doesn't have a zip code. It's too small to be called a town along the rolling plains of Texas. We grew dryland cotton and wheat, and when I wasn't farming or attending Paint Creek Rural School, I was generally over at Troop 48 working on my Eagle Scout award.
Don't quack like a duck, soar like an eagle.
As the eagle was killed by the arrow winged with his own feather, so the hand of the world is wounded by its own skill.
I have never forgotten my days as an Eagle Scout. I didn't know it at the time, but what really came out of my Scouting was learning how to lead and serve the community. It has come in handy in my career in government.
I love the water. Everything about it. Smelling the humidity in the air, seeing the mist rise in the morning, feeling the dew-wet grass on my bare feet. I love watching the fish jump and the geese land. We even have an eagle here that circles every so often.

William J. Clinton

On stage I have to be comfortable because I play guitar so I can't wear too much jewellery, it knocks against the guitar and makes loud noises.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
