I started thinking about birds - not just the eagle - and started looking for quotes that speak to me. Here are a few and my comments are in blue font.
Why do birds sing in the morning?
It's the triumphant shout:
"We got through another night!"
Where you've been or what you've been through is not as important as where you're headed. Whatever your situation, always have a song in your heart...it will lift you.
Be like the bird in flight . . . pausing a while on boughs too slight, feels them give way beneath her, yet sings knowing yet, that she has wings.
Victor Marie Hugo
Each bird must sing with his own throat.
God gives every bird its food, but he does not throw it into the nest.
Josiah Gilbert Holland
Use the talents you possess - for the woods would be a very silent place if no birds sang except for the best.
Henry Van Dyke
You cannot fly like an eagle with the wings of a wren. ~ William Henry Hudson
Self-development is key to advancement; to get to the next level, invest in yourself.
