What’s up with the name?
“Quick said the bird” is a line pulled from T.S. Eliot’s four part poem, Four Quartets. Specifically, you can find this passage in the first part of “Burnt Norton” (No. 1 of Four Quartets. To me, this poem and this line specifically speak of a desire and determination to live in the present, to seize every day, to enter the metaphorical garden with your eyes open, with a finely-tuned sense of adventure. Also? T.S. Eliot is a genius.
