The Thorn birds

There’s a story … a legend about a bird that sings just once in its life . From the moment it leaves its nest, it searches for a thorn tree and never rests until it’s found one . And then it sings … more sweetly than any other creature on the face of the earth …  and singing it impales itself on the longest , sharpest thorn

But as it dies , it rises above its own agony to out- sing the lark and the nightingale . The thorn bird pays its life for just one song ; but the whole world stills to listen , and God in his heaven smiles....[It means] That the best , is bought only at the coast of great pain
