Caged Bird

Famous quotes related to caged bird:

    The compelled mother loves her child as the caged bird sings. The song does not justify the cage nor the love the enforcement.
    Germaine Greer (b. 1939)

    I know what the caged bird feels, alas!
    Paul Laurence Dunbar (1872–1906)

    It is not a carol of joy or glee,
    But a prayer that he sends from his heart’s deep core,
    But a plea, that upward to Heaven he flings—
    I know why the caged bird sings!
    Paul Laurence Dunbar (1872–1906)

    The caged bird sings
    with a fearful trill
    of things unknown
    but longed for still
    and his tune is heard
    on the distant hill
    for the caged bird
    sings of freedom.
    Maya Angelou (b. 1928)
