Birds (class Aves) are a group of endothermic vertebrates, characterized by feathers, a beak with no teeth, the laying of hard-shelled eggs, a high metabolic rate, a four-chambered heart, and a lightweight but strong skeleton. Birds play prominent and diverse roles in folklore, religion, and art. Books about birds include fiction (particularly children's fiction) and non-fiction (such as guides for birdwatchers).

O Heavenly Children, do not forget that God is here, there and everywhere. The birds are his eyes and the air is his ears. And as you sleep, your heart and soul rest naked before him. He can drink from the rivers of your thoughts, and even feel the wetness of your tears.
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

J.M. Barrie
The reason birds can fly and we can't is simply because they have perfect faith, for to have faith is to have wings.
