Does Mama Eagle Push Baby Eagle out of Nest?

Me to a friend facing a possible lay-off, but who hates his job and knows what it is to be passionate about something (and he ain't passionate about what he's doing now):

"You'll be fine, man. Maybe this is exactly what you need - metaphorically, like mama eagle pushing you, little baby bald eagle, out of the nest so you can be all majestic and sh*t."

In writing that, I kept thinking of Stephen Jr. and hoping that Baby Eagles do soar majestically if their corporate mom pushes them out of their corporate nest.

And, as Marcus Aurelius said, "Remember this— that there is a proper dignity and proportion to be observed in the performance of every act of life."
