Quote for Today: Herman Melville

The theme for the week is eagle and we begin with a new version of one of our first quotes, a marvelous selection from Moby Dick. Here’s hoping you get to soar this week, even if you are cutting through a dark place.


aigle-survolant-une-foret (1)And there is a Catskill eagle in some souls that can alike dive down into the blackest gorges, and soar out of them again and become invisible in the sunny spaces. And even if he for ever flies within the gorge, that gorge is in the mountains; so that even in his lowest swoop the mountain eagle is still higher than other birds upon the plain, even though they soar.
