Sloof Bird quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#1. To feel free like a bird, some things on our minds must be left in the past. #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Sloof Bird quotes by Audrey Niffenegger
#2. After my mom died she ate my father up completely. She would have hated it. Every minute of his life since then has been marked by her absence, every action has lacked dimension because she is not there to measure against. And when I was young I didn't understand, but now, I know, how absence can be present, like a damaged nerve, like a dark bird. If I had to live on without you I know I could not do it. But I hope, I have this vision of you walking unencumbered, with your shining hair in the sun. I have not seen this with my eyes, but only with my imagination, that makes pictures, that always wanted to paint you, shining; but I hope that this vision will be true, anyway. #Quote by Audrey Niffenegger
Sloof Bird quotes by Dalai Lama
#3. The only clear thing is that we humans are the only species with the power to destroy the earth as we know it. The birds have no such power, nor do the insects, nor does any mammal. Yet if we have the capacity to destroy the earth, so, too, do we have the capacity to protect it. #Quote by Dalai Lama
Sloof Bird quotes by Isabella L. Bird
#4. Oh! To be beyond the pale once more, out of civilization into savagery? I abhor civilization! #Quote by Isabella L. Bird
Sloof Bird quotes by Katherine Catmull
#5. She wasn't a cruel Bird. But her heart ached so badly for these sad, broken birds that, just as the Puppeteer had planned, she had begun to hate them. She hated them for making her feel so wretched, when she should be happiest. That happens sometimes. #Quote by Katherine Catmull
Sloof Bird quotes by Juan Rulfo
#6. What's taking you so long in the privy, son?"
"Nothing, mama."
"If you stay in there much longer, a snake will come and bite you"
"Yes, mama."
I was thinking of you, Susana of the green hills. Of when we
used to fly kites in the windy season. We could hear the sounds of life from the town below; we were high above on the hill, playing out string to the wind. "Help me, Susana." And soft hands would tighten on mine. "Let out more string."

The wind made us laugh; our eyes followed the string running through our fingers after the wind until with a faint pop! it broke, as if it had been snapped by the wings of a bird. And high over head, the paper bird would tumble and somersault, trailing its rag tail, until it disappeared into the green earth.
Your lips were moist, as if kissed by the dew.
"I told you, son, come out of the privy now."
"Yes, mama. I'm coming."
I was thinking of you. Of the times you were there looking at me
with your aquamarine eyes.
He looked up and saw his mother in the doorway.
"What's taking you so long? What are you doing in there?"
"I'm thinking."
"Can't you do it somewhere else? It's not good for you to stay in the privy so long. Besides, you should be doing something. Why don't you go help your grandmother shell corn?"
"I'm going, mama. I'm going. #Quote by Juan Rulfo
Sloof Bird quotes by Jack Kerouac
#7. Maybe that bird that floats
hill belly on the wind up there,
and that cat
that pats
in this grass,
is the same
Angel #Quote by Jack Kerouac
Sloof Bird quotes by Kai Bird
#8. Palestinian guerrillas, in a bold and coordinated action, created this newest crisis Sunday, and in doing so they accomplished what they set out to do: they thrust back into the world's attention a problem diplomats have tended to shunt aside in hesitant steps towards Middle East peace. #Quote by Kai Bird
Sloof Bird quotes by Jane Hirshfield
#9. To Hear the Falling World

Only if I move my arm a certain way,
it comes back.
Or the way the light bends in the trees
this time of year,
so a scrap of sorrow, like a bird, lights on the heart.
I carry this in my body, seed
in an unswept corner, husk-encowled and seeming safe.
But they guard me, these small pains,
from growing sure
of myself and perhaps forgetting. #Quote by Jane Hirshfield
Sloof Bird quotes by Barbara Mandrell
#10. In my garden, which is a big garden, I have one part that is my bird garden, and every morning, 365 days a year, they get buckets of food - for the birds, for the squirrels, the chipmunks and the turtles in the summer. #Quote by Barbara Mandrell
Sloof Bird quotes by Matsuo Basho
#11. A bush-warbler,
Coming to the verandah-edge,
Left its droppings
On the rice-cakes. #Quote by Matsuo Basho
Sloof Bird quotes by Gregory Colbert
#12. Letter 1
To the princess of the elephants,
I disappeared exactly one year ago. On that day I received a letter. It called me back to the place where my life with the elephants began
Please forgive me, for the silence between us has been unbroken for one year.
I will never be more of myself than in these letters.
They are my maps of the bird path, and they are all that I know to be true. #Quote by Gregory Colbert
Sloof Bird quotes by Lawrence Anthony
#13. If there is one thing I disapprove of it's the unnatural capture and taming of wild animals, whether an elephant or a bird. To me, the only good cage is an empty cage. #Quote by Lawrence Anthony
Sloof Bird quotes by Justin Torres
#14. We wanted more. We knocked the butt ends of our forks against the table, tapped our spoons against our empty bowls; we were hungry. We wanted more volume, more riots. We turned up the knob on the TV until our ears ached with the shouts of angry men. We wanted more music on the radio; we wanted beats; we wanted rock. We wanted muscles on our skinny arms. We had bird bones, hollow and light, and we wanted more density, more weight. We were six snatching hands, six stomping feet; we were brothers, boys, three little kings locked in a feud for more. #Quote by Justin Torres
Sloof Bird quotes by Jack Gilbert
#15. How to Love the Dead
She lives, the bird says, and means nothing
silly. She is dead and available
the fox says, knowing about the spirits.
Not the picture at the funeral,
not the object of grieving. She is dead
and you can have that, he says. If you can
love without politeness or delicacy,
the fox says, love her with your wolf heart.
As the dead are to be desired.
Not the way long marriages are,
nothing happening again and again,
Not in the woods or in the fields.
Not in the cities. The painful love of being
permanently unhoused. Not the color, but the stain. #Quote by Jack Gilbert
Sloof Bird quotes by Francis Thompson
#16. Deep in my heart subsides the infrequent word, And there dies slowly throbbing like a wounded bird. #Quote by Francis Thompson
Sloof Bird quotes by Harry Harrison
#17. He didn't say so but Andy agreed with the bodyguard. A good-looking bird like this one didn't have to kill anyone. What she did she did for D's and if a guy gave her too much trouble she'd just walk out and find someone else with money. Not murder. #Quote by Harry Harrison
Sloof Bird quotes by Caroll Spinney
#18. When he first started - Jim Henson, who created Bid Bird and Oscar - he said Big Bird was just a big, goofy guy. And it was - a script came along and I said, 'I think Big Bird would be much more useful to the show if he were a child learning all the things we were teaching in the show.' And so he didn't know the alphabet, even, for instance. #Quote by Caroll Spinney
Sloof Bird quotes by Arthur Miller
#19. A man is not a bird, to come and go with the springtime. #Quote by Arthur Miller
Sloof Bird quotes by Nicky Hilton
#20. When I was a kid I had this funny blonde hair and everyone called me 'Chick' because I looked like Tweety Bird. #Quote by Nicky Hilton
Sloof Bird quotes by Annie Lennox
#21. I can't understand why the front pages of newspapers can cover bird flu and swine flu and everybody is up in arms about that and we still haven't really woken up to the fact that so many women in sub-Saharan Africa - 60 percent of people in - infected with HIV are women. #Quote by Annie Lennox
Sloof Bird quotes by Bob Tarte
#22. Linda hadn't exaggerated her fear of the golden orb weaver spider. Up north at her cabin in Morley, I had once teased her by asking "Have we ever seen this kind of vireo before?" And then, instead of showing her a photo of a bird, I thrust a picture of the black-and-yellow spider at her. She shrieked. I laughed. Oh, the fun we had. #Quote by Bob Tarte
Sloof Bird quotes by Andrew Bird
#23. Melodies are just honest. They can only be what they are. Words have the capacity for deception. They're all full of subtext, and some of them are cliche and overused and vernacular. They're tricky. All I can say is, words are tricky. #Quote by Andrew Bird
Sloof Bird quotes by Bill Bryson
#24. How do migrating birds know which one to follow? What if the lead bird just wants to be alone? #Quote by Bill Bryson
Sloof Bird quotes by Johanna Spyri
#25. The poor child felt like a little bird that is placed in a glittering cage. #Quote by Johanna Spyri
Sloof Bird quotes by A.A. Milne
#26. If you were a bird, and lived on high, You'd lean on the wind when the wind came by, You'd say to the wind when it took you away: 'That's where I wanted to go today! #Quote by A.A. Milne
Sloof Bird quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#27. If a bird is caged, expect all its songs to be songs of freedom. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Sloof Bird quotes by Josephine Hart
#28. For why trap what is already trapped? It is only in flight that we know the freedom of the bird #Quote by Josephine Hart
Sloof Bird quotes by Richard Bach
#29. Fletcher Lynd Seagull was still quite young, but already he knew that no bird had ever been so harshly treated by any Flock, or with so much injustice. #Quote by Richard Bach
Sloof Bird quotes by Margaret Atwood
#30. Feathers," he says.

They ask this question at least once a week. He gives the same answer. Even over such a short time - two months, three? He's lost count - they've accumulated a stock of lore, of conjecture about him: Snowman was once a bird but he's forgotten how to fly and the rest of his feathers fell out, and so he is cold and he needs a second skin, and he has to wrap himself up. No: he's cold because he eats fish, and fish are cold. No: he wraps himself up because he's missing his man thing, and he doesn't want us to see. That's why he won't go swimming. Snowman has wrinkles because he once lived underwater and it wrinkled up his skin. Snowman is sad because the others like him flew away over the sea, and now he is all alone. #Quote by Margaret Atwood
Sloof Bird quotes by Dorothy Parker
#31. Every year, back comes Spring, with nasty little birds yapping their fool heads off and the ground all mucked up with plants. #Quote by Dorothy Parker
Sloof Bird quotes by Steven James
#32. I am a caged bird,
rattling the bars of my cage,
with furious flutterings,
break my chains!
Free my spirit!
Let me fly with the wings you have drawn upon my soul
with heaven dipped ink #Quote by Steven James
Sloof Bird quotes by Clint Eastwood
#33. When I did 'Bird,' it was a surprise to some people, first because I wasn't in it and second because most of the films I'd been doing were cop movies or westerns or adventure films, so to be doing one about Charlie Parker, who was a great influence on American music, was a great thrill for me. #Quote by Clint Eastwood
Sloof Bird quotes by Suzanne Collins
#34. I got the idea from our family's plant book. The place where we recorded things you cannot trust to memory. The page begin's with the person's picture. A photo if we can find it. If not, a sketch or a painting by Peeta. Then, in my most careful handwriting, come all the details it would be a crime to forget. Lady licking Prim's cheek. My father's laugh. Peeta's father with the cookies. The colour of Finnick's eyes. What Cinna would do with a length of silk. Boggs reprogramming the Holo. Rue poised on her toes, arms slightly extended, like bird about to take flight. On and on. We seal the pages with salt water and promises to live well to make their deaths count. Haymitch finally joins us, contributing twenty-three years of tributes he was forced to mentor. Additions become smaller. An old memory that surfaces. A late promise preserved between the pages. Strange bits of happiness, like the photo of Finnick and Annie's newborn son. #Quote by Suzanne Collins
Sloof Bird quotes by Brad Bird
#35. I never look back darling. It distracts from the now. #Quote by Brad Bird
Sloof Bird quotes by Bob Marley
#36. Only a foolish dog barks at a flying bird. #Quote by Bob Marley
Sloof Bird quotes by Nancy E. Turner
#37. I dream of land, cut only where streams glistened with birdsong wander through quiet hills burnt hard by the scrape of wind, and of a porch from which a single road leads only homeward. #Quote by Nancy E. Turner
Sloof Bird quotes by James Lever
#38. Impressing the ladies is an arduous task ', as the narrator is always saying on Animal Planet...'Perhaps no creature has a more elaborate courtship display than the bower bird'. No creature? That's a joke, right? You can't think of one? Clue: as part of its elaborate courtship displays this creature has invented telephones, moving pictures, cars, music, money, organized warfare, tigerskin rugs, alcohol, mood-lighting, speedboats, mink coats, cities and poetry. So, please, no sniggering at the bower birds' attempts to get laid. #Quote by James Lever
Sloof Bird quotes by Larry Bird
#39. I've been around a while. I kinda know these things. #Quote by Larry Bird
Sloof Bird quotes by William Kean Seymour
#40. In a cool solitude of trees Where leaves and birds a music spin, Mind that was weary is at ease, New rhythms in the soul begin. #Quote by William Kean Seymour
Sloof Bird quotes by James Joyce
#41. What birds were they? ( ... ) He listened to the cries: like the squeak of mice be-
hind the wainscot : a shrill twofold note. But the notes
were long and shrill and whirring, unlike the cry of
vermin, falling a third or a fourth and trilled as the
flying beaks clove the air. Their cry was shrill and
clear and fine and falling like threads of silken light
unwound from whirring spools. #Quote by James Joyce
Sloof Bird quotes by Larry Bird
#42. Don't let winning make you soft. Don't let losing make you quit. Don't let your teammates down in any situation. #Quote by Larry Bird
Sloof Bird quotes by Paul Laurence Dunbar
#43. A Golden Day
I Found you and I lost you,
All on a gleaming day.
The day was filled with sunshine,
And the land was full of May.
A golden bird was singing
Its melody divine,
I found you and I loved you,
And all the world was mine.
I found you and I lost you,
All on a golden day,
But when I dream of you, dear,
It is always brimming May. #Quote by Paul Laurence Dunbar
Sloof Bird quotes by J.R. Ward
#44. When I picked up the bird and felt its light weight in my hands, I realized that carelessness was a form of cruelty. See, I'd always told myself that because I meant no harm, anything that happened wasn't my fault. At that moment, though, I knew I was wrong. If I hadn't given the female my gun, the bird wouldn't have been shot. I was responsible even though I didn't pull the trigger. #Quote by J.R. Ward
Sloof Bird quotes by Menachem Mendel Schneerson
#45. One who loves must learn fear. One who fears must learn love. The thinker must do. The doer must think. The pacifist must fight, the fighter must find peace. If you flow as a river, burn as a fire. If you burn as a furnace, flow as a river. If you fly as a bird, sit firm as a rock. If you sit firmly, then fly as a bird. Be a fire that flows. A rock that flies. Love with fear and fear with love. For we are not fire, not water, not air, not rocks, not thoughts, not deeds, not fear, not love. We are G-dly beings. #Quote by Menachem Mendel Schneerson
