Enid Bagnold

Elizabeth Coatsworth

God loved the birds and invented trees. Man loved the birds and invented cages.
Jacques Deval

Rachel Carson
Silent Spring.

You know that if I were reincarnated, I'd want to come back a buzzard. Nothing hates or envies him, or wants him or needs him. He is never bothered and he can eat anything.
William Faulkner

You can know the name of a bird in all the languages of the world, but when you're finished, you'll know absolutely nothing whatever about the bird . . . So let's look at the bird and see what it's doing - that's what counts. I learned very early the difference between knowing the name of something and knowing something.
Richard P. Feynman

I wish the bald eagle had not been chosen as the representative of our country; he is a bird of bad moral character . . . like those among men who live by sharping and robbing, he is generally poor, and often very lousy . . . the turkey is a much more respectable bird, and withal a true original native of America.
Benjamin Franklin

If I could come back as anything - I'd be a bird, first, but definitely the command key is my second choice.
Nikki Giovanni

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.
Henrik Ibsen

Magpie, n.: A bird whose theivish disposition suggested to someone that it might be taught to talk.
Ambrose Bierce

Ostrich, n.: A large bird to which (for its sins, doubtless) nature has denied that hinder toe in which so many pious naturalists have seen a conspicuous evidence of design. The absence of a good working pair of wings is no defect, for, as has been ingeniously pointed out, the ostrich does not fly.
Ambrose Bierce

God gives every bird its food, but he does not throw it into the nest.
Josiah Gilbert Holland

Turkey, n. A large bird whose flesh when eaten on certain religious anniversaries has the peculiar property of attesting piety and gratitude. Incidentally, it is pretty good eating.
Ambrose Bierce

Growing up, my Mom always claimed to feel bad when a bird would slam head-first into our living room window. If she "really" felt bad, though, she'd have moved the bird feeder outside.
Rich Johnson

Carols of gladness ring from every tree.
Frances Anne Kemble

Bird watching is a bloodless expression of manÕs primitive hunting instincts. We have substituted binoculars and cameras for the gun, but we still seek a trophy - A new species on a life list, or photographs of one of earthÕs rarest and most exquisite creatures. Our search may take us no farther than a nearby meadow - Or it can lead to the cloud forests of tropical mountains.
James A. Kern

If one cannot catch a bird of paradise, better take a wet hen.
Nikita Khrushchev

Her beauty was sold For an old man's gold, She's a bird in a gilded cage.
Arthur J. Lamb

Mockingbirds don't do one thing but make music for us to enjoy. They don't do one thing but sing their hearts out for us. That's why it's a sin to kill a mockingbird.
Harper Lee

Even when a bird walks, one feels it has wings.
Antoine-Marin Lemierre

My favorite weather is bird-chirping weather.
Loire Hartwould

A bird does not sing because it has an answer. It sings because it has a song.
Chinese Proverb
