Some Thoughts on Birds

How helpless we are, like netted birds, when we are caught by desire! Belva Plain

I realized that If I had to choose, I would rather have birds than airplanes. Charles Lindbergh (1902 – 1974), Interview shortly before his death, 1974

Fall is my favorite season in Los Angeles, watching the birds change color and fall from the trees. David Letterman (1947 – )

I hope you love birds too. It is economical. It saves going to heaven. Emily Dickinson (1830 – 1886)

The moment a little boy is concerned with which is a jay and which is a sparrow, he can no longer see the birds or hear them sing. Eric Berne (1910 – 1970)

Use what talents you possess: the woods would be very silent if no birds sang there except those that sang best. Henry Van Dyke

God loved the birds and invented trees. Man loved the birds and invented cages. Jacques Deval, Afin de vivre bel et bien

Birds sing after a storm; why shouldn’t people feel as free to delight in whatever sunlight remains to them? Rose Kennedy (1890 – 1995)

No bird soars too high if he soars with his own wings. William Blake (1757 – 1827)

A bird does not sing because it has an answer. It sings because it has a song. Chinese Proverb
