"I see at intervals the glance of a curious sort of bird
through the close set bars of a cage:
a vivid, restless, resolute captive is there;
were it but free, it would soar cloud high."
-- Charlotte Bronte, Jane Eyre

"Everybody's a bird, locked up in a pretty cage.
Sometimes you fly to a slightly bigger one,
but you never quite have the courage to abandon captivity completely."
-- Dave McKean, Cages
"Fear is the highest fence."
-- Dudley Nichols
