Ailsa’s Travel Theme this week is All about Animals. It was fun going over my database of animal photographs as we have visited quite a number of zoos, safari, bird parks over the years. Here are just a few that I wish to share with you.
Bird Park, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
“The reason birds can fly and we can’t is simply because they have perfect faith, for to have faith is to have wings.”
― J.M. Barrie, The Little White Bird
“Birds…scream at the top of their lungs in horrified hellish rage every morning at daybreak to warn us all of the truth. They know the truth. Screaming bloody murder all over the world in our ears, but sadly we don’t speak bird.”
― Kurt Cobain
“In order to see birds it is necessary to become a part of the silence.”
― Robert Lynd
It is not part of a true culture to tame tigers, any more than it is to make sheep ferocious.
- Henry David Thoreau
“A free bird leaps on the back of the wind
and floats downstream till the current ends
and dips his wing in the orange suns rays and dares to claim the sky.” – Maya Angelou
“A person’s a person, no matter how small.”
― Dr. Seuss, Horton Hears a Who!
