Avem aripi ca sa zburam, dar ne trebuie nu doar aer ca sa ne ridicam in vazduh. Si cand ne ridicam, uitam ca aripile noastre sunt fragile, incercam imposibilul si cadem. Si astfel invatam cum sa mergem mai departe. Pentru ca aripile cresc la loc si aer e destul.

We have wings to fly, but it takes more than air to lift us up in the air. And when we do get up in the air, we forget the fragility of our wings, we try the impossible and we fall. And thus we learn how to keep on going. Because wings grow back and there’s plenty of air.
