Weekend Wisdom Goes To The Birds
It is 9:15 p.m. Eastern time on Friday and the birds are merrily singing their song. It is anything but a lullaby. So I decided to find bird quotes for “Weekend Wisdom.”
The first two pictures were taken at my former job. This beauty was singing up a storm one day. The last one is a bird in his nest on my neighbor’s fence.
I once had a sparrow alight upon my shoulder for a moment, while I was hoeing in a village garden, and I felt that I was more distinguished by that circumstance than I should have been by any epaulet I could have worn.
~Henry David Thoreau
Have you ever observed a humming-bird moving about in an aerial dance among the flowers – a living prismatic gem…. it is a creature of such fairy-like loveliness as to mock all description.
~W.H. Hudson, Green Mansions
God loved the birds and invented trees. Man loved the birds and invented cages.
~Jacques Deval, Afin de vivre bel et bien
~Robert Lynd, The Blue Lion and Other Essays
