A Bird's-Eye View Upon Life

by Billy Casper's World

Films centered upon birds or symbolically alluding to bird life.

‘Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die, life is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly.’ – Langston Hughes (poet and playwright)

‘Time sometimes flies like a bird, sometimes crawls like a snail; but a man is happiest when he does not even notice whether it passes swiftly or slowly.’ – Ivan Turgenev (author and playwright)

‘Birds born in cages think that flying is a disease.’ – Alejandro Jodorowsky (film director and actor)
