62 Eagle Quotes That Can Help You Conquer the Sky

You can rarely see a convocation of eagles. These independent and lone birds of prey can soar alone for 4 to 6 hours without landing. One might think eagles could be more powerful when strategizing together, but they don't have to prove it otherwise. 

Since eagles embody courage, they became symbols of power as early as the 4th millennium BC in Mesopotamia, in the 2nd millennium BC by the Hittites, in Roman legions, and even up to today in powerful nations like America and Germany.

Discover how these raptors came about to symbolize strength, power, and freedom. And as you read this curated list of eagle quotes, learn about the bird's influence and nature.

Best Eagle Quotes

Even though its purpose was to uplift spirits, the famous internet story about the eagle's rebirth is false. Eagles do not lose their talons and beaks when they reach 30 to 40 years old. They also do not pluck out all of their feathers, all assets essential for the eagle's survival. And, no creature has the luxury of extending its lifespan unless raised in captivity. From 30 to 40 years old in the wild, eagles can reach around 70 years old when in confinement.

Of course, it's always worth checking the facts when we hear stories on the internet. To start this list, read these best eagle quotes that will surely leave a good impression on you.

Inspirational Eagle Quotes About Unleashing Your Potential

Do parent eagles push their eaglets out of the nest to learn how to fly? Absolutely not! Eagles are the most hands-on parents in the animal kingdom. Their nests, called eyries, will always have one parent present who will take care of the eaglets, providing shade from the sun and warmth to combat the cold.  Even after young eagles learn how to fly, their parents will continue to teach and support them for another four to five weeks.

Remember how supportive your family and friends are as you read these inspiring eagle quotes.

Quotes About Eagles To Evoke Sense Of Freedom

Eagles have two anatomical features to fly as high as 20,000 feet above sea level and as fast as 200 mph. Would you believe they have hollow bones to reduce their weight?

Motivational Quotes To Start Your Day Like An Eagle

You have an eagle eye. There is a reason why we have this idiom. Eagles have around a million light-sensitive sensory cells per square millimeter of the retina, which is five times what we have. An eagle’s eyes can detect a rabbit 2 miles away from them. Truly their impressive vision makes them excellent predators.

Like the eagle's eyes, may these quotes give you laser focus on your goals.

Eagle Quotes Describing The King Of The Sky In Nature

Eagles are nicknamed Kings of the Sky due to their calculated hunting skills, among other reasons. Some eagles let other birds do their hunting for them. After pelicans or herons catch a fish, sea eagles will taunt them until they drop their food. Some eagles will eat exhausted birds who fail to catch fish for hours. They will conserve their energy as much as possible and eat whatever food is available in nature. 

Reading these fascinating eagle quotes may increase your desire to learn more about the kings of the sky.

Quotes About The History And Culture Of The US Where The Bald Eagle Is The National Emblem

When we think of eagles, many of us may associate them with the United States of America. Bald Eagles have been the official national symbol of the country since June 20, 1782. The Great Seal of America shows a bald eagle holding an olive branch and an arrow. But, have you wondered why we call them bald even if they are not? The word bald actually came from the Old English word balde, which means white.

Philosophical Eagle Proverbs

Eagles are considered apex predators in their natural habitat at the top of the food chain. These birds primarily feed on medium-sized mammals, birds, and fish.  As opportunistic predators, they will only hunt animals that pose no danger to them. They also scavenge dead meat when food is scarce. If need be, these birds will hunt down our lovely pets. It's a gruesome truth, but that is how nature works.

Humans, for years, have observed these apex predators and written about them in philosophical proverbs. Share these proverbs with your socials and discuss how you understand them.

Noteworthy Eagle Quotes In Arts And Literature

Even if we know birds of prey as apex predators, they still face human-made threats. The biggest one is lead poisoning picked up from eating deer carcasses killed by lead bullets. In the USA, almost half of bald and golden eagles exhibit signs of chronic lead poisoning. 

Fortunately, we have seen many conservation efforts around the globe to save these glorious birds. To participate, we can spread awareness by celebrating National Save the Eagle Day every January 10th. Meanwhile, read these eagle quotes from art and literature to encourage someone you know to be a part of the solution -protecting these birds for future generations to coexist with.

Other Eagle Quotes About Life

In 2016, the Dutch police force trained eagles as their low-tech solutions to high-tech illegal drones. It seemed like an ingenious idea. However, they halted the program after training 100 eagles for a year. Drones running at least 70 mph can easily injure an eagle. With their dwindling numbers, we should reduce their deaths as much as possible. Also, we cannot guarantee a few months of training can suppress the predatory instincts of eagles who still prove dangerous to the public, specifically small children.

Let’s leave these magnificent creatures in their natural habitat and appreciate them from afar. Read our remaining eagle quotes below to inspire you in your daily endeavors.
