seldom reached by the best of Guns...."

"The desire to fly is an idea handed down to us by our ancestors 
who looked enviously on the birds soaring freely through space
on the infinite highway of the air..."

is simply because they have perfect faith, 
for to have faith is to have wings....”

And at the end of my prayers, 
they teach me how to listen....”
