Quote of the Day
Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul - and sings the tunes without the words - and never stops at all.
It is not only fine feathers that make fine birds.
Our birthdays are feathers in the broad wing of time.
We have enslaved the rest of the animal creation, and have treated our distant cousins in fur and feathers so badly that beyond doubt, if they were able to formulate a religion, they would depict the Devil in human form.
William Ralph Inge
Sticking feathers up your butt does not make you a chicken.
Is education possibly a process of trading awareness for things of lesser worth? The goose who trades his is soon a pile of feathers.
If you keep your feathers well oiled the water of criticism will run off as from a duck's back.
Ellen Swallow Richards
Writing songs is like capturing birds without killing them. Sometimes you end up with nothing but a mouthful of feathers.
If you want to know how far gossip travels, do this - take a feather pillow up on a roof, slice it open, and let the feathers fly away on the wind. Then go and find every single feather and re-stuff the pillow.
Men think highly of those who rise rapidly in the world; whereas nothing rises quicker than dust, straw, and feathers.
Feathers predate birds.
Robert T. Bakker
A brain of feathers, and a heart of lead.
Because the heart beats under a covering of hair, of fur, feathers, or wings, it is, for that reason, to be of no account?
A friend of mine has a big farm in the desert, and she picks up feathers and roadkill for me, then makes it into clothes. I think it's cool to wear roadkill. If I died and somebody wanted to wear my teeth around their neck to VMAs, I'd feel honored.
I do love one-upmanship sometimes, like when you see kids breakdancing and who can do the best tricks. It's common, it's in our nature as animals, like the birds of paradise who've got the best feathers and that sort of stuff. But it's fun when it's impulsive and it's about fun.
I collect firearms, and I've got a Winchester, an Indian rifle. It has tacks for every warrior that was shot, like notches on a pistol, and it's got feathers and beads hanging off it. It's like a work of art.
Kevin Costner has feathers in his hair and feathers in his head. The Indians should have called him 'Plays with Camera.'
Well, I've ruffled a few feathers at all the institutions I've led. But I think that's part of leadership.
Robert M. Gates
I enjoy how women dressed in the 1920s with the shimmering jewels and rich feathers.
The feathers have been retired to the London Hard Rock Cafe. I don't obsess about it as much. Also, it's strange - the better physical shape I get in, the less I care about what suit I'm covering myself up in. I'm not really out to flaunt it, but I'm just more comfortable in my own skin.
My own feelings of where I am in this world and the questions that I am asking myself, I started to explore them through the story 'Four Feathers' and through this actor called Heath Ledger. I knew that I had to find a 21-year-old who could play wisdom at the end. He's only 21 or 22, and I tested him.
After 'Four Feathers,' I quit then because I just lost faith. I didn't like how the business was.
I have made bouquets of pleats, bouquets of flowers, bouquets of ruffles, bouquets of feathers. Often I design in mousseline, held tightly around the waist, and with something else going on all around.
My view on politics is much more grassroots oriented; it's not old boy network oriented, so I tend to, you know, come at it a little bit stronger, a little bit more street-wise, if you will. That's rubbed some feathers the wrong way.
Praises for our past triumphs are as feathers to a dead bird.
John F. Kennedy
