Let’s hear it for our feathered friends!  Here are five quotes about birds from literature.

Perspective

So much of life is about perspective isn’t it?  You think you’re having a bad day and then you narrowly avoid a car accident.  It turns out to be a very, very lucky day.

You’re surprised to hear about a friend’s divorce.  You always thought they were so happy. Nope.  That was just how it looked from the outside.

You look out the window and see a snowy, cold afternoon.  Your child looks out the window and sees their world transformed into a beautiful, white fantasy.

Perspective.  It’s the difference between living your life and just getting through your life.

One never can tell from the sidewalk just what the view is to some one on the inside, looking out. ~  Knocking the Neighbors by George Ade

Come what may, I am bound to think that all things are ordered for the best; though when the good is a furlong off, and we with our beetle eyes can only see three inches, it takes some confidence in general principles to pull us through. ~  The Stark Munro Letters by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

“When you consider things like the stars, our affairs don’t seem to matter very much, do they?” ~  Night and Day by Virginia Woolf
