"Put a fish on land and she will remember the ocean until she dies.
Put a bird in a cage, yet he will not forget the sky.
Each remains homesick for his true home,
The place where his nature has decreed that he should be.
Man is born in the state of innocence.
His original nature is love, grace and purity.
Yet he emigrates so casually without even a thought of his old home.
Is this not sadder than the fishes and the birds?"

  4. Fortunately, a man may do something about his plight.
    Sadly, too often he does not.

  7. Yes indeed... Our real origin is from God and how few of us and how few times do we ever think of Him?
