Bittersweet victory where the small fly and the great plummet
Those wayward sparrows that die on the battlefield know how to survive with hunger and little crumbs, but any victory they had would have come too late. No matter how high we strive, we will never sit at the divine table, at least not 'til our death. Those individuals who learn to live on the crumbs fallen from above will still have rough patches in their life, but they will be taken care of all the same. "God keeps his oath to sparrows, who of little love know how to starve!" The great ones who believe themselves to be above the rest, eagles feasting on small birds, will not always have it so easy. "The eagle's golden breakfast strangles them." People often seek to fly with the majesty of an eagle's wings, but it is the sparrow that is far more common. Smaller and seen as unimportant, the sparrow will continue to survive on little while the eagle is on the Endangered Species List.
