You cannot prevent the birds from flying over your head, but you can prevent them from building nests in your hair. A bird does not chirp because it has an answer. It chirps because it wants to make a sound. The early bird gets the worm, but the wiser mouse gets the cheese. Her imagination resembles the wings of an ostrich. It enables her to run, though not to soar. A woman with a fixed idea is like an ostrich that tries to hatch a rock.
