The Birds Fly South | Short Quotes or Sayings

Free Agency 101

by Rodrigo Silveira

As the ancient Chinese proverb reminds its students, birds usually do fly south. The utterance of olden times suggest to the mind much more than a repeated pattern followed by our feathered friends. Sometimes it seems to the careful or casual observer that a west- or east-ward flight would render better results than a downward exodus. Such logical predictions is precisely what sets us apart from any other animal form in this planet. Human beings are made in the form and likeness of its supreme creator, according to the holy writ. Thus, say the ancient script, like our creator, we humans have the ability to make decisions based on choice and reasoning, and not mere instinct. We can recognize a given situation, analyse it, research it, test it, and learn from it based on results. By the fruits, the text says, we learn whether something is effective, efficient, and beneficial.

Therefore, as we have seen, there is still a very monumental lesson to be learned from the lower forms of existence whose air we share, and whose long chains of protein we enjoy as occasion may permit. That is their to adapt. Even with such complex decision-making systems available to us, there is still times when a poor decision is made, or a good decision is not, simply because of the individual's desire or willingness to adapt to a forthcoming change. With specific reference to two people agreeing to share a tooth brush, I believe that such lessons as our toothless, Archosaur neighbors have taught us, could save many others from amongst us from anxiety, frustration, and premature hairloss, if applied in any decision making situation where choice is involved, along with a healthy telencephalon.
