If you are like me when you hear the word 'gnome',
the image above is what comes into your mind.
But when I went to Phronistery, I learned a new meaning.
Chinese gnome or proverb:
A bird does not sing because it has an answer. It sings because it has a song.
On another site, I came across this quote that I found interesting-
“I realized that If I had to choose, I would rather have birds than planes.”
~Charles Lindbergh (interview shortly before his death- 1974)

“Robins are the most indulgent parents of all birds.
I’ve seen a mother robin lead a youngster right up to a worm
and point it out, but in spite of all she can do, she finally had to pick it up for the youngster and hand it to him. Young robins will not work till they just have to.”
