Quote of the Day
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
Ignorance is the curse of God; knowledge is the wing wherewith we fly to heaven.
I decided to fly through the air and live in the sunlight and enjoy life as much as I could.
He who would learn to fly one day must first learn to stand and walk and run and climb and dance; one cannot fly into flying.
I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.
This is love: to fly toward a secret sky, to cause a hundred veils to fall each moment. First to let go of life. Finally, to take a step without feet.
We are each of us angels with only one wing, and we can only fly by embracing one another.
Luciano De Crescenzo
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.
Aerodynamically, the bumble bee shouldn't be able to fly, but the bumble bee doesn't know it so it goes on flying anyway.
Mary Kay Ash
Don't believe what your eyes are telling you. All they show is limitation. Look with your understanding, find out what you already know, and you'll see the way to fly.
We all fly. Once you leave the ground, you fly. Some people fly longer than others.
It's impossible to explain creativity. It's like asking a bird, 'How do you fly?' You just do.
Eric Jerome Dickey
To invent an airplane is nothing. To build one is something. But to fly is everything.
Feet, what do I need you for when I have wings to fly?
There is poison in the fang of the serpent, in the mouth of the fly and in the sting of a scorpion; but the wicked man is saturated with it.
It's just a job. Grass grows, birds fly, waves pound the sand. I beat people up.
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
I'm going to tell you the story about the geese which fly 5,000 miles from Canada to France. They fly in V-formation but the second ones don't fly. They're the subs for the first ones. And then the second ones take over - so it's teamwork.
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.
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.
Well, the odds must be against anybody being able to fly around the world in a balloon on the first attempt. All of us who are attempting to go around the world in balloons are effectively flying in experimental craft because these craft cannot be tested.
And so you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further. With your mind power, your determination, your instinct, and the experience as well, you can fly very high.
The balloons only have one life and the only way of finding out whether they work is to attempt to fly around the world.
There are joys which long to be ours. God sends ten thousands truths, which come about us like birds seeking inlet; but we are shut up to them, and so they bring us nothing, but sit and sing awhile upon the roof, and then fly away.
Henry Ward Beecher
