Don't fence me in

"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

Self portrait 8-27-13

"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
