PostSubject: The feathered wise one   Fri 19 Jan - 2:27

We all know that owls are meant to be wise. The following quote offers an explanation why:

"A wise old owl sat on an oak; The more he saw the less he spoke; The less he spoke the more he heard; Why aren't we like that wise old bird?"

Edward Hersey Richards
