A character in the Ken Bruen novel London Boulevard (soon to be a major motion picture) tells the following story:
An eagle's egg falls into a chicken coop. It hatches and the chickens raise it as their own. The chick learns to pick at the ground, develops like them. One day, he sees a majestic bird fly over. He's told it is the most superb of all creatures. He returns to pecking at the ground, grows old and dies, believing he's a chicken.
On my wall at work next to my desk is the following saying: You are better than you think you are and can do more than you think you can.
I'm going to look for my inner eagle today and not be too chicken to fly.
