Fly Free like an Eagle in Life. Don't let anything hold you back!
Life doesn't always go smooth. It has its calm and turbulent moments. If you sense life is getting windy and perhaps a storm is coming, climb as high as you can and let the bad weather pass. Sometimes some situations / people try to clip your wings, but in time they will re-grow and you will fly again and be free.
One of my favourite songs related to flying is Eagle by ABBA. It has a fantastic melody and you feel like your flying high.
I also like the song Flying High by Captain Hollywood Project. Captain Hollywood Project was a German Eurodance band. Flying HIgh was released in November 1994 as the first single from his second album Animals or Human.
Songwriting-wise I have approached this topic from many points of view and situations, but I have not used the eagle / flying analogy.
Here are some nice quotes related to flying / eagles:
- A bird sitting on a tree is never afraid of the branch breaking because his/her trust is not on the branch but on it's own wings. Always believe in yourself.
- Fly Free like an Eagle: Don’t be a parrot in life, be an eagle. A parrot talks way to much, but can’t fly high but an eagle is silent and has the willpower to touch the sky.
- If you want to fly, give up everything that weighs you down.
- When a storm is coming, all other birds seek shelter. The Eagle alone, avoids the storm by flying above it. So, in the storms of life...May your heart soar like an Eagle.
