A Quote by Sir William Schwenck Gilbert on birds and weakness

On a tree by a river a little tom-tit Sang 'Willow, titwillow, titwillow!' And I said to him, 'Dicky-bird, why do you sit Singing 'Willow, titwillow, titwillow?' 'Is it a weakness of intellect, birdie? I cried, 'Or a rather tough worm in your little inside?' With a shake of his poor little head he replied, 'Oh, willow, titwillow, titwillow!'

A Quote by Samuel Taylor Coleridge on birds, dream, nature, spring, winter, and work

All Nature seems at work.
Slugs leave their lair -
The bees are stirring - birds are on the wing -
And Winter slumbering in the open air,
Wears on his smiling face a dream of Spring!
And I the while, the sole unbusy thing,
Nor honey make nor pair, nor build, nor sing.

Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772 - 1834)

A Quote by Ryokan on birds, dreams, and weather

Someday I'll be a weather-beaten skull resting on a grass pillow, Serenaded by a stray bird or two. Kings and commoners end up the same, No more enduring than last night's dream.

Words are heavy like rocks, they weigh you down. If birds could talk they wouldn't be able to fly.
