the sound of wings

Courage is the price that Life exacts for granting peace.
The soul that knows it not, knows no release
From little things:
Knows not the livid loneliness of fear,
Nor mountain heights where bitter joy can hear
The sound of wings.
 - Amelia Earhart

I agree, to find peace often requires a good deal of courage, it's all too easy to just sit back and fain contentedness at the way your life is and never venture forth to see how it could be!!

Who put the "hot" in Hottentot? Who put the "ape" in apricot? What'a they got that I don't got?

We all like the Crying Lion.

What makes the elephant charge his tusk in the misty mist, or the dusky dusk?What makes the muskrat guard his musk?What makes the sphinx the seventh wonder?What makes the dawn come up like thunder? Yes we all do and some of us are the crying lion!
