The 10/05/13 Joy Jar

5 Oct

Today is a fabulous Fall day in Seattle. The sun is shining and there is a bit of underlying chill in the air. Passed by a building and there were dozens on birds on the roof just chillin. They almost looked like they needed sunglasses, but they were cool anyway. Today’s deposit into the “Joy Jar’ is the birds chillin on the roof.

It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad.
C. S. Lewis

Intelligence without ambition is a bird without wings.
Salvador Dali

Faith is the bird that feels the light when the dawn is still dark.
Rabindranath Tagore

A bird doesn’t sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.
Lou Holtz

I am no bird; and no net ensnares me; I am a free human being with an independent will.
Charlotte Bronte

Be like the bird who, pausing in her flight awhile on boughs too slight, feels them give way beneath her, and yet sings, knowing she hath wings.
Victor Hugo

Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die, life is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly.
Langston Hughes

No bird soars too high if he soars with his own wings.
William Blake

I’d rather learn from one bird how to sing than to teach ten thousand stars how not to dance.
e. e. cummings

It’s best to have failure happen early in life. It wakes up the Phoenix bird in you so you rise from the ashes.
Anne Baxter
