Once there was a king who received a gift of two magnificent falcons from Arabia. They were peregrine falcons, the most beautiful birds he had ever seen. He gave the precious birds to his head falconer to be trained.
Months passed and one day the head falconer informed the king that though one of the falcons was flying majestically, soaring high in the sky, the other bird had not moved from its branch since the day it had arrived.
The king summoned healers and sorcerers from all the land to tend to the falcon, but no one could make the bird fly. He presented the task to the member of his court, but the next day, the king saw through the palace window that the bird had still not moved from its perch. Having tried everything else, the king thought to himself, "May be I need someone more familiar with the countryside to understand the nature of this problem." So he cried out to his court, "Go and get a farmer."
In the morning, the king was thrilled to see the falcon soaring high above the palace gardens. He said to his court, "Bring me the doer of this miracle."
The court quickly located the farmer, who came and stood before the king. The king asked him, "How did you make the falcon fly?"
With head bowed, the farmer said to the king, " It was very easy, your highness. I simply cut the branch where the bird was sitting."
Suttfied this from a fwd. My take on this is a bit different. Everyone has potential.
Some want to fulfill their potential and proceed to do it. Some know they can realise their potential if they give a small try..but are complacent/lazy enough not to give that try. For those people, the branch has to break on its own, as they would be fiercely protective of it.
Everyone WANT to be loved..but how many CAN actually??
Everyone CAN fall in love..but how many WANT to??
Everyone WANT to be good..but how many CAN?
Everyone CAN be generous and share their good fortune..but how many WANT to?
I dunno which bird i am..maybe a bit of both i guess :) But i get bored with branches very fast and atleast move across them :) So...moral of the story:
Make your own moral. Stories are just meant to entertain :)
