"In 'The Fourth Way,' Ouspensky described a man who attaches two horses to an airplane and uses it as a carriage. Then he learns how to use the engine and turns the plane into a motor car. But the plane never takes flight. 'That is what we are doing with ourselves,' Ouspensky explained. 'We use ourselves as a carriage when we could fly'."

-- Hurricane: The Miraculous Journey of Rubin Carter"; James Hirsch; page 172.

We can fly.
