What is flying?

Famous quotes containing the word flying:

    Now I am alone with the dead,
    flying off bridges,
    hurling myself like a beer can into the wastebasket.
    I am flying like a single red rose,
    leaving a jet stream
    of solitude....
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    The sea was wet as wet could be,
    The sands were dry as dry.
    You could not see a cloud, because
    No cloud was in the sky:
    No birds were flying overhead—
    There were no birds to fly.
    Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898)

    This parrot is no more! It has ceased to be! It’s expired and gone to meet its maker! This is a late parrot! It’s a stiff!... THIS IS AN EX-PARROT!
