The Conscience Manifesto disse...

isto lembra-me uma história que que li num livro :)


A man found na eagle's egg and put it in a nest of a barnyard hen.


The eagle hatched with the brood of chicks and grew up with them.


All his life the egale did what the barnyard chicks did, thinking he was a barnyard chicken. He stratched the earth for worms and insects. He clucked and cackled. And he would trash his wings and fly a few feet into the air.


Years passed and the eagle grew very old. One day he saw a magnificente bird above him in the cloudless sky. It glided in graceful majesty among the powerful wind currents, with scarcely a beat of its strong golden wings.

The old eagle looked up in awe. "Who's that?" he asked.


"That's the eagle, the king of the birds", said his neighbor.


He belongs to the sky. We belong to the earth - we're chickens.


So the eagle lived and died a chicken, for that's what he tought he was.
