„All the birds have flown up and gone;
A lonely cloud floats leisurely by.
We never tire of looking at each other—
Only the mountain and I.“

—  Li Po, [38] "Alone Looking at the Mountain" Variant translations: The birds have vanished down the sky. Now the last cloud drains away. We sit together, the mountain and me, until only the mountain remains. "Zazen on Ching-t'ing Mountain", trans. Sam Hamill Flocks of birds fly high and vanish; A single cloud, alone, calmly drifts on. Never tired of looking at each other— Only the Ching-t'ing Mountain and me. "Sitting Alone in Ching-t'ing Mountain", trans. Irving Y. Lo

„We have flown the air like birds and swum the sea like fishes, but have yet to learn the simple act of walking the earth like brothers.“

—  Martin Luther King, Jr. American clergyman, activist, and leader in the American Civil Rights Movement 1929 - 1968
Context: There is a sort of poverty of the spirit which stands in glaring contrast to our scientific and technological abundance. The richer we have become materially, the poorer we have become morally and spiritually. We have learned to fly the air like birds and swim the sea like fish, but we have not learned the simple art of living together as brothers.
