- Essays "Of Suspicion
Suspicions amongst thoughts are like bats amongst birds, they ever fly by twilight.
- Francis Bacon
- In a Country Church
The dry whisper of unseen wings,
Bats not angels, in the high roof.
- R S Thomas
Mind in its purest play is like some bat
That beats about in caverns all alone,
Contriving by a kind of senseless wit
Not to conclude against a wall of stone.
- Richard Wilbur
