For The Bird (Lovers)

I never saw a wild thing sorry for itself. A small bird will drop frozen dead from a bough without ever having felt sorry for itself.
David Herbert Lawrence

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 

Just as there are predatory birds, so there are predatory ideas
Elie Wiesel

Poetry is like a bird, it ignores all frontiers.
Yevgeny Yevtushenko
