• And God says to all of us, you are no chicken; you are an eagle. Fly, eagle, fly. And God wants us to shake ourselves, spread our pinions, and then lift off and soar and rise, and rise toward the confident and the good and the beautiful. Rise towards the compassionate and the gentle and the caring. Rise to become what God intends us to be - eagles, not chickens.

    "Desmond Tutu: 'And God Says to All of Us, You Are No Chicken; You Are an Eagle'". Desmond Tutu's commencement address at Brandeis University, 2000.
