There is a legend about a bird that sings just once in its life, more
sweetly than any other creature on the face of the earth. From the
moment it leaves the nest it searches for a thorn tree and does not
rest until it has found one. Then, singing among the savage branches,
it impales itself upon the longest, sharpest spine. Dying, it rises
above its own agony to out-carol the lark and the nightingale. One
superlative song, existence the price. But the whole world stills to
listen, and God in His heaven smiles. For the best is only bought at
the cost of the great pain. Ã¯Â¿Â½ Or so says the legend.
Do you find this as inspiring as I do?
