Feathery Quotes

Image

“Hope is the thing with feathers, that perches in the soul, and sings the tune without words, and never stops at all.” Emily Dickinson

“Men think highly of those who rise rapidly in the world, whereas nothing rises quicker than dust, straw and feathers.” Lord Byron

“He thought of all the living species that train their young in the art of survival, the cats who teach their kittens to hunt, the birds who spend much strident efforts teaching their fledglings to fly–yet man who’s tool of survival is the mind, does not merely fail to teach a child to think, but devotes the child’s entire education to the purpose of destroying his brain, of convincing him that thought is futile and evil before he has started to think . . . men would shudder, he thought, if they saw a mother bird plucking¬† the feathers from the wings of her young, then pushing him out of her nest to struggle for survival–yet that was what they did to their children.” Ayn Rand

“He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.”¬† Psalm 91:4
