two wings.

Just some thoughts applicable today and every day:

"The world of humanity is possessed of two wings: the male and the female. So long as these two wings are not equivalent in strength, the bird will not fly. Until womankind reaches the same degree as man, until she enjoys the same arena of activity, extraordinary attainment for humanity will not be realized; humanity cannot wing its way to heights of real attainment. When the two wings . . . become equivalent in strength, enjoying the same prerogratives, the flight of man will be be exceedingly lofty and extraordinary." -- Bahai'i Faith, "Two Wings of a Bird"
