"..Most gulls don't bother to learn more than
the simplest facts of flight - how to get from
shore to food and back again. For most gulls,
it is not flying that matters, but eating.
For this gull, though, it was not eating
that mattered, but flight. More than anything
else. Jonathan Livingston Seagull loved to fly."
..from Richard Bach's "Jonathan Livingston Seagull"
