Conditions of a Solitary Bird / 孤鳥的五個狀態 Reply

孤鳥的五個狀態:

一、牠飛到至高點
二、即使再親,牠也不為有無同伴所苦
三、牠將喙對準於天
四、牠沒有一定的色彩
五、牠輕歌婉轉

– San Juan de la Cruz

“The conditions of a solitary bird are five:

The first, that it flies to the highest point;
the second, that it does not suffer for company,
not even of its own kind;
the third, that it aims its beak to the skies;
the fourth, that it does not have a definite color;
the fifth, that it sings very softly.”

– San Juan de la Cruz, Dichos de Luz y Amor
