Why ,Jon ,why?“ His mother asked. ”Why is it so hard to be like the rest of the flock, Jon? Why can’t you leave low flying to the pelicans, the albatross? Why don’t you eat? Jon, you are bone and feathers!“
”I don’t mind being bone and feathers, Mum. I just want to know what I can do in the air and what I can’t, that’s all. I just want to know“
”See here, Jonathan,“ said his father, not unkindly. ”Winter isn’t far away. Boats will be few, and the surface fish will be swimming deep. If you must study, then study food, and how to get it. This flying business is all very well, but you can’t eat a glide, you know. Dont’t you forget that the reason you fly is to eat"

you're the 2nd person in the past 24 hours that refers me to jonathan livingston seagull... is this a conspiracy or what? ;-)

p.s. the quote is a wonderful basis for an endless discussion. do we do the things we for the purpose of survival? do we do them for the sake of finding our limits? and do we actually always have to look at these things in exclusive oppositions?

Si la raison de voler était seulement de se nourrir, que deviendrait la vol plaisir, le vol d'une espèce libre en quête d'absolu? Mais je réagis en être humain ,pas en goéland !

Mr. Angil I suppose? During the period when this book came out in Italy raged a song, The Seagull Unhappy, we joked a lot about this thing :-)
