Jonathan Livingston Seagull

“How much more there is now to living!
Instead of our drab slogging forth and back to the fishing boats, there’s reason to life!
We can lift ourselves out of ignorance, we can find ourselves as creatures of
excellence and intelligence and skill. We can be free! We can learn to fly!”

- Jonathan Livingston Seagull -

Some time back, one of my friends gave me this book "Jonathan Livingston Seagull' by Richard Bach. It's a short story of a Seagull who loved flying. This story tells us about the greater meaning of life which is much more than just living to eat and having fun. Anyone having a little time must read this story and get the essence of the true meaning of life which is to break free from the shackles of desires and 'fly'!!

The book can be read by clicking here.
