Once there was a flock of geese. They were kept in a wire cage, by a farmer. One day, one of the geese looked up and saw there was no top to the cage. Excitedly, he told the other geese:

“Look, look: There is no top. We may leave here. We may become free.”

Few listened, and none would turn his head to the sky.

So, one day, he simply spread his wings and flew away – alone.

-- Soren Kierkegaard
