James Allen, author

The structure of a play is always the story of how the birds came home to roost.

Human beings are the only animal that thinks they change who they are simply by moving to a different place. Birds migrate, but it's not quite the same thing.

Doug Coupland, author

Hear the birds? Sometimes I like to pretend that I'm deaf and I try to imagine what it's like not to be able to hear them. It's not that bad.

Larry David, actor

O fret not after knowledge -- I have none, and yet my song comes native with the warmth. O fret not after knowledge -- I have none, and yet the Evening listens.

Marriage is like a cage; one sees the birds outside desperate to get in, and those inside desperate to get out.

Michel de Montaigne, philosopher

One must ask children and birds how cherries and strawberries taste.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, writer

I spent a lot of money on booze, birds and fast cars. The rest I just squandered.

As much as I converse with sages and heroes, they have very little of my love and admiration. I long for rural and domestic scene, for the warbling of birds and the prattling of my children

John Adams, president

Birds are a miracle because they prove to us there is a finer, simpler state of being which we may strive to attain.

Doug Coupland, author

When thou seest an eagle, thou seest a portion of genius; lift up thy head!

William Blake, poet

How did it happen that their lips came together? How does it happen that birds sing, that snow melts, that the rose unfolds, that the dawn whitens behind the stark shapes of trees on the quivering summit of the hill? A kiss, and all was said.

Victor Hugo, author

Pan, who and what art thou? he cried huskily. I'm youth, I'm joy, Peter answered at a venture, I'm a little bird that has broken out of the egg.

J.M. Barrie,

Another thing I like to do is sit back and take in nature. To look at the birds, listen to their singing, go hiking, camping and jogging and running, walking along the beach, playing games and sometimes being alone with the great outdoors. It's very special to me.

Larry Wilcox, actor

Self-help books are for the birds. Self-help groups are where it's at.

Alfred Russel Wallace, scientist

What birds can have their bills more peculiarly formed than the ibis, the spoonbill, and the heron?

Alfred Russel Wallace, scientist

The author O. Henry taught me about the value of the unexpected. He once wrote about the noise of flowers and the smell of birds - the birds were chickens and the flowers dried sunflowers rattling against a wall.

Chuck Jones, director

Since childhood she had walked the Devon rivers with her father looking for flowers and the nests of birds, passing some rocks and trees as old friends, seeing a Spirit everywhere, gentle in thought to all her eyes beheld.

Henry Williamson, author

We have an uncanny ability to make birds do what we want them to do. In Blood Simple there's a shot from the bumper of a car and it's going up this road and a huge flock of birds takes off at the perfect moment.

Joel Coen, director

The cool wind blew in my face and all at once I felt as if I had shed dullness from myself. Before me lay a long gray line with a black mark down the center. The birds were singing. It was spring.

Burl Ives, musician

In The Touch, the love scenes are the same as they were in The Thorn Birds or anything else I've ever written. I find a way of saying that either it was heaven or hell but in a way that still leaves room for the reader to use their own imagination.

Colleen McCullough, author

When we seed millions of acres of land with these plants, what happens to foraging birds, to insects, to microbes, to the other animals, when they come in contact and digest plants that are producing materials ranging from plastics to vaccines to pharmaceutical products?

Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, politician

Watching birds has become part of my daily meditation affirming my connection to the earth body.

Carol P. Christ, educator

The parish I live in is a very abrupt, uneven country, full of hills and woods, and therefore full of birds.

John Hench, artist

Evolutionary biologists are not content merely to explain how variation occurs within limits, however. They aspire to answer a much broader question-which is how complex organisms like birds, and flowers, and human beings came into existence in the first place.

Phillip E. Johnson, educator

Predators make it much more difficult to find consensus. It's a lot easier to agree about birds and plants than about animals that endanger people and livestock.

Be grateful for luck. Pay the thunder no mind - listen to the birds. And don't hate nobody.

Eubie Blake, composer

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

Jacques Deval,

The very idea of a bird is a symbol and a suggestion to the poet. A bird seems to be at the top of the scale, so vehement and intense his life. . . . The beautiful vagabonds, endowed with every grace, masters of all climes, and knowing no bounds -- how many human aspirations are realised in their free, holiday-lives -- and how many suggestions to the poet in their flight and song!

John Burroughs, author

A turkey is more occult and awful than all the angels and archangels. In so far as God has partly revealed to us an angelic world, he has partly told us what an angel means. But God has never told us what a turkey means. And if you go and stare at a live turkey for an hour or two, you will find by the end of it that the enigma has rather increased than diminished.

G. K. Chesterton, writer

Everything perfect in its kind has to transcend its own kind, it must become something different and incomparable. In some notes the nightingale is still a bird; then it rises above its class and seems to suggest to every winged creature what singing is truly like.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, writer

The bird let loose in Eastern skies,Returning fondly home,Ne'er stoops to earth her wing, nor fliesWhere idle warblers roam;But high she shoots through air and light,Above all low delay,Where nothing earthly bounds her flight,Nor shadow dims her way.

Thomas Moore, poet

Inventive man has invented nothing -- nothing from scratch. If he has produced a machine that in motion overcomes the law of gravity, he learned the essentials from the observation of birds.

Dorothy Thompson, journalist

To a man, ornithologists are tall, slender, and bearded so that they can stand motionless for hours, imitating kindly trees, as they watch for birds.

Gore Vidal, novelist

Did St Francis preach to the birds? Whatever for? If he really liked birds he would have done better to preach to the cats.

Rebecca West, author

Happier of happy though I be, like them I cannot take possession of the sky, mount with a thoughtless impulse, and wheel there, one of a mighty multitude whose way and motion is a harmony and dance magnificent.

William Wordsworth, poet

Birds are the last of the dinosaurs. Tiny velociraptors with wings. Devouring defenseless wiggly things and, and nuts, and fish, and, and other birds. They get the early worms. And have you ever watched a chicken eat? They may look innocent, but birds are, well, they're vicious.

Neil Gaiman, author

It would have been hard for Fat Charlie to say exactly when the accumulation of birds on the wire mesh moved from interesting to terrifying. It was somewhere in the first hundred or so, anyway. And it was in the way they didn't coo, or caw, or trill, or song. They simply landed on the wire, and they watched him.

Neil Gaiman, author

I like to express certain things that happen in my life, the joy of spring, the birds singing and young babies coming into the world. You know, the whole thing as well as the part I'm not happy with, the sad part.

Roy Haynes, musician

In Georgia where children work day and night in the cotton mills they have just passed a bill to protect song birds. What about the little children from whom all song is gone?

Mary Harris Jones, union organizer

Much talking is the cause of danger. Silence is the means of avoiding misfortune. The talkative parrot is shut up in a cage. Other birds, without speech, fly freely about.

Saskya Pandita, leader

Most of the birds of the Old World can be found here, as Oman is on a strategic route for migrating birds.

Saadi, poet

I look out of this window and I think this is a cosmos, this is a huge creation, this is one small corner of it. The trees and birds and everything else and I'm part of it. I didn't ask to be put here, I've been lucky in finding myself here.

Morris West, writer

Make no mistake about it. These are not 'kookie' birds. Right now the greatest player, the big tent on the political scene in America, is called the Tea Party movement.

Dick Armey, politician

Half of the modern drugs could well be thrown out of the window, except that the birds might eat them.

Martin Henry Fischer,

It's just a job. Grass grows, birds fly, waves pound the sand. I beat people up.

Muhammad Ali, boxer

Did St. Francis preach to the birds? Whatever for? If he really liked birds he would have done better to preach to the cats.

Rebecca West, author

If I had to choose, I would rather have birds than airplanes.

Charles Lindbergh, aviator

In Kenya you've got the great birds and monkeys leaping through the trees overhead. It's a chance to remember what the world is really like.

Joanna Lumley, actress

I used to have this little mouse. I buy birds from the pet store and I let them go.

Ziggy Marley,

The most ordinary conditions for observing sailing birds are then the wind and sea are both aft.

Lawrence Hargrave, scientist

Even in a less exaggerated description, any verbal account of a person is bound to find itself employing an assortment of waterfalls, lightning rods, landscapes, birds, etc.

Sergei Eisenstein, director

Animal substance seems to be the first food of all birds, even the granivorous tribes.

William Bartram, environmentalist

Some tribes of birds will relieve and rear up the young and helpless, of their own and other tribes, when abandoned.

William Bartram, environmentalist

Turkeys, quails, and small birds, are here to be seen; but birds are not numerous in desart forests; they draw near to the habitations of men, as I have constantly observed in all my travels.

William Bartram, environmentalist

I am often on guard over the Russians. In the darkness one sees their forms move like stick storks, like great birds. They come close up to the wire fence and lean their faces against it. Their fingers hook round the mesh.

Erich Maria Remarque, writer

I consider myself to have been the bridge between the shotgun and the binoculars in bird watching. Before I came along, the primary way to observe birds was to shoot them and stuff them.

Roger Tory Peterson, environmentalist

What a kid I got, I told him about the birds and the bees and he told me about the butcher and my wife.

Rodney Dangerfield, comedian

No one is free, even the birds are chained to the sky.

Bob Dylan, singer songwriter

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?

David Attenborough, journalist

Birds are the most popular group in the animal kingdom. We feed them and tame them and think we know them. And yet they inhabit a world which is really rather mysterious.

David Attenborough, journalist

What I am interested in with birds, just as I am with spiders or monkeys, is what they do and why they do it.

David Attenborough, journalist

I still derive immense pleasure from remembering how many hod-carrying brickies were encouraged to put on lurex tights and mince up and down the high street, having been assured by know-it-alls like me that a smidgen of blusher really attracted the birds.

David Bowie, singer songwriter

The distribution of plants in a given locality is not more marked and defined than that of the birds. Show a botanist a landscape, and he will tell you where to look for the lady's-slipper, the columbine, or the harebell. On the same principles, the ornithologist will direct you where to look for the greenlets, the wood-sparrow, or the chewink.

John Burroughs, author

Robin is one of the most native and democratic of our birds; he is one of the family, and seems much nearer to us than those rare, exotic visitants, as the orchard starling or rose-breasted grossbeak, with their distant, high-bred ways.

John Burroughs, author

All birds are incipient or would-be songsters in the spring. I find corroborative evidence of this even in the crowing of the cock.

John Burroughs, author

Most birds are very stiff-necked, like the robin, and as they run or hop upon the ground, carry the head as if it were riveted to the body. Not so the oven-bird, or the other birds that walk, as the cow-bunting, or the quail, or the crow. They move the head forward with the movement of the feet.

John Burroughs, author

If America wishes to preserve her native birds, we must help supply what civilization has taken from them. The building of cities and towns, the cutting down of forests, and the draining of pools and swamps have deprived American birds of their original homes and food supply.

John Burroughs, author

The homing instinct in birds and animals is one of their most remarkable traits: their strong local attachments and their skill in finding their way back when removed to a distance. It seems at times as if they possessed some extra sense - the home sense - which operates unerringly.

John Burroughs, author

Indians walk softly and hurt the landscape hardly more than the birds and squirrels, and their brush and bark huts last hardly longer than those of wood rats, while their more enduring monuments, excepting those wrought on the forests by the fires they made to improve their hunting grounds, vanish in a few centuries.

John Muir, environmentalist

The dispersal of juniper seeds is effected by the plum and cherry plan of hiring birds at the cost of their board, and thus obtaining the use of a pair of extra good wings.

John Muir, environmentalist

My early business ventures included growing Christmas trees and breeding birds.

Richard Branson, businessman

True Scouts are the best friends of animals, for from living in the woods and wilds, and practising observation and tracking, they get to know more than other people about the ways and habits of birds and animals, and therefore they understand them and are more in sympathy with them.

Robert Baden-Powell, soldier

I think the sea swallowed dozens of tea sets - tossed in abandon off liners or consigned to the tide by jilted brides. I collected a shiver of china bits, with borders of larkspur and birds or braids of daisies. No two patterns ever matched.

Sylvia Plath, poet
