References in classic literature ?
But I admire the owl for the reason that she is positively foolish.
The owl flapped its wings again, muttering these words:
The owl hasn't given us any advice, as yet," the boy declared.
The Foolish Owl must be foolish or she wouldn't be the Foolish Owl.
How cruel it was of me to put those poor little owls into a cage even for one night
I am sorry to contradict my famous friend and colleague," said the Owl, "but as far as I'm concerned, I think that when the dead weep, it means they do not want to die.
And now the sun went quite down; the gloomy night came; the owl flew into a bush; and a moment after the old fairy came forth pale and meagre, with staring eyes, and a nose and chin that almost met one another.
When other birds are still, the screech owls take up the strain, like mourning women their ancient u-lu-lu.
The Owls inhabited a decayed and deserted summer-house.
For years the Owls lived undisturbed on the property which they had acquired by the oldest of all existing rights--the right of taking.
So, for years, the Owls slept their happy sleep by day, and found their comfortable meal when darkness fell.
The constitution of the summer-house had lasted until the spring of the year eighteen hundred and sixty-eight, when the unhallowed footsteps of innovation passed that way; and the venerable privileges of the Owls were assailed, for the first time, from the world outside.
