What does this quote mean to you?

Be like the bird who, pausing in her flight awhile on boughs  too slight, feels them give way beneath her, and yet sings, knowing she hath  wings.
Victor Hugo

We all have moments where we feel like the small bird perched on the bough too slight.  So to all you small birds out there: While it may seem dark around you, don’t forget that you do have wings.  You just need to find them. And sometimes that takes some time. And some faith. But I promise. One day, you will fly.

So what are your wings? I would love to hear what this quote means to you…. your motivaitonal speaker is listening.
