Birds quotes

Henry Ward Beecher
There are joys which long to be ours. God sends ten thousands truths, which come about us like birds seeking inlet but we are shut up to them, and so they bring us nothing, but sit and sing awhile upon the roof, and then fly away.

Robinson Jeffers
Seagulls... slim yachts of the element.

Andy Warhol
The mosquito is the state bird of New Jersey.

Friedrich Nietzsche
Men have hitherto treated women like birds which have strayed down to them from the heights as something more delicate, more fragile, more savage, stranger, sweeter, soulful but as something which has to be caged up so that it shall not fly away.

James Allen
The birds are moulting. If only man could moult also - his mind once a year its errors, his heart once a year its useless passions.

Lord Alfred Tennyson
He clasps the crag with crooked hands Close to the sun in lonely lands, Ringed with the azure world, he stands. The wrinkled sea beneath him crawls He watches from his mountain walls, And like a thunderbolt he falls.

John Webster
We think caged birds sing, when indeed they cry.

Ambrose Bierce
Turkey, n. A large bird whose flesh when eaten on certain religious anniversaries has the peculiar property of attesting piety and gratitude. Incidentally, it is pretty good eating.
