Believe that you can pick yourself up from any failure 😉

Victor Hugo Quotes

Be like the bird who, pausing in her flight awhile on boughs too slight, feels them give way beneath her, and yet sings, knowing she hath wings.

A bird sitting on a tree is never afraid of a branch breaking, because it’s a bird

A bird sitting on a tree is never afraid of a branch breaking because he’s more afraid of the hawk that may be coming. Priorities people.

But I don't have wings, and the branches are rotten. Also the tree is on fire.

What if I don't believe in myself ?

Then what the hell are you doing up on a tree branch?! Get outta here with that tree climbing nonsense!


NFIM_ t1_j8uzjfj wrote

Well, what if they're the kind of person who has to see to believe? They went up the tree to see for themselves.

If only we could all be birds, blessed with the innate ability to fly. Unfortunately gifts like that are not innate for many people.

What about a squirrel?

Its faster than gravity ever could be :D

Go ask the squirrels that fell out of my tree all the time. They had way more trust in the branches.


VohnHaight t1_j8gq6ea wrote

Nothing but trust in those branches. They're always falling in my backyard hahah


Sonyguyus t1_j8gqk6u wrote

And they’ll run back up the tree like they didn’t hurt or embarrass themselves in front of the other squirrels. They really shit themselves when they fall while my dogs are in the backyard.

Unless it’s a kakpo - the fattest and least able to fly bird

Unfortunately humans aren't birds and are beholden to other humans, which means no matter how hard you try if the world doesn't want you to improve you won't improve.

Always thought it was because the bird wasn't heavy enough to snap the branch lol

It's not a quote if you don't know who said it.

Tf does this even mean?

Its obv. When you sit on a bench, do you trust the bench to not break or do you trust your ass to fly?

/s I find it pretty profound tbh. It's about confidence in one's self and abilities; to not worry of unforeseen circumstances when you know you can rise above them.

Happiness/confidence doesn’t come from knowing things won’t fall apart. It comes from knowing you can pick yourself up if they do.
