Bird Quotations

Intelligence without ambition is a bird without wings.
Salvador Dali

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

A bird doesn't sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.
