To find the universal elements enough; to find the air and the water exhilarating; to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter... to be thrilled by the stars at night; to be elated over a bird's nest or a wildflower in spring - these are some of the rewards of the simple life.
No better way is there to learn to love Nature than to understand Art. It dignifies every flower of the field. And, the boy who sees the thing of beauty which a bird on the wing becomes when transferred to wood or canvas will probably not throw the customary stone.
Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die, life is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly.
Life Is A

Even the dullest bird or face becomes interesting when you give it a good look in the wild/flesh.

My heart always makes a little jump when I see things in birds or faces that surprise me.
Oh, bird of my soul, fly away now, For I possess a hundred fortified towers.
No bird soars too high if he soars with his own wings.
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
I think we consider too much the good luck of the early bird and not enough the bad luck of the early worm.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
The bird a nest, the spider a web, man friendship.
A bird cannot fly with one wing only. Human space flight cannot develop any further without the active participation of women.
What is a fish without a river? What is a bird without a tree to nest in? What is an Endangered Species Act without any enforcement mechanism to ensure their habitat is protected? It is nothing.
It's like being a bird, maybe, the perspective of flying over the Earth.
I am no bird; and no net ensnares me; I am a free human being with an independent will.
A leaf fluttered in through the window this morning, as if supported by the rays of the sun, a bird settled on the fire escape, joy in the task of coffee, joy accompanied me as I walked.
Everyone likes birds. What wild creature is more accessible to our eyes and ears, as close to us and everyone in the world, as universal as a bird?
I never saw a wild thing sorry for itself. A small bird will drop frozen dead from a bough without ever having felt sorry for itself.
D. H. Lawrence
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.
I'd rather learn from one bird how to sing than teach ten thousand stars how not to dance.
e. e. cummings

James M. Barrie
