Review quote

"Look at that mallard as he floats on the lake...The wary bird draws his feet under his body, springs upon them, opens his wings, and with loud quacks bids you farewell." - John James Audubon, The Birds of America "No bird soars too high, if he soars with his own wings." - William Blake "Hold fast to dreams for if dreams die, life is a broken winged bird that cannot fly." - Langston Hughes "A hen is only an egg's way of making another egg." - Samuel Butler "Magpie, n. A bird whose thievish disposition suggested to someone that it might be taught to talk." - Ambrose Bicrce"show more
