The great human flaw

Artist: Francisco de Goya

This is sad. And profound. And insightful:

God loved the birds and invented trees. Man loved the birds and invented cages.

-- Jacques Deval


  1. Yikes. I am bad. Anybody want a screaming parrot that can't fly?

  2. Aw. I don't think the quote is meant to be taken so literally, Tom. Anyway, presumably your parrot was raised to be a pet. It's not as if you captured a wild bird and then held it captive while it pined away for its former life! :-)

  3. Ok. Thanks for the absolution. ; )
