There be three things which are too wonderful for me, yes, four which I know not:…
Four wonderful things about the eagle.
1. It is wonderful for its strength. Shown in its swiftness; the great height to which it flies; the heavy food it can carry.
2. Its sight. It can rise from its rest at noon, and go soaring up towards the sun. It can go on rising higher and higher, and yet all the time be gazing steadily at the full-orbed splendour which is shining round it. From its great height the eagle can see even little hen walking about on the earth.
3. Its training. The parent eagles teach the young ones how to fly, so that when they grow up they may be able to take care of themselves.
4. Its safety. In its nest, on the top of some mountain peak, far away out of reach of danger.
