Everyone likes birds. What wild creature is more accessible to our eyes and ears, as close to us and everyone in the world, as universal as a bird?

I might put a nicer pair of heels on and a cooler outfit, but I'm still that naughty girl who likes a slice of cheesecake on my day off.
Nobody likes to hear it, because it's dull, but the reason you win or lose is darn near always the same - pitching.
Nobody likes tainted victories.
The reward for conformity is that everyone likes you but yourself.
Rita Mae Brown
How can you take seriously someone who likes to believe something because he finds it 'comforting'?

What an author likes to write most is his signature on the back of a cheque.

I just make the pictures and where they fall is where they fall. If somebody likes them, that's always nice. And if they don't like them, then too bad.
We are addicted to our egotism, our likes and dislikes and prejudices, and depend upon them for our own sense of identity.
In theatres, you're kind of disconnected. Also, it's way too big for the likes of me. Unless you're Robin Williams or someone that can fill a stage with movement and energy, it just looks like a small man on a big stage.

A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
