 “He who controls others may be powerful,
but he who has mastered himself is mightier still.”

~ Lao Tzu

This beautiful and proud bald eagle (known to some as Sam) resides at the Quogue Wildlife Refuge. He was taken in by the refuge in 1988 after undergoing a wing amputation due to gunshot injury. He has been a cherished member of the animal sanctuary ever since. Although Sam cannot soar the skies the way nature might have intended, it is clear he has found empowerment and inner-peace at the refuge, surrounded by other members of the wildlife community, and his human admirers. Go Sam!! 😉

When life offers the
gift of opportunity,
we must be ready to take that plunge…

And when we plunge–
let it be without pause,
with pure passion,
and with every fiber of our being.

Like the turtle
cautious and slow;
we need a safe shell
when it’s time to lie low.
