Philosophy will clip an angel’s wings.
Friendship is Love without his wings!
No bird soars too high if he soars with his own wings.
When love beckons to you, follow him, Though his ways are hard and steep. And when his wings enfold you yield to him, Though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you.
Love and desire are the spirit’s wings to great deeds.

Food for us comes from our relatives, whether they have wings or fins or roots. That is how we consider food. Food has a culture. It has a history. It has a story. It has relationships.
Those who gave away their wings are sad not to see them fly.
Pleasures take to themselves wings and fly away; true knowledge remains forever.
When we are touched by something it’s as if we’re being brushed by an angel’s wings.
