An ostrich does not fly. You can apologize to it, you can mediate with it, you can cajole it and play to its ego, but the ostrich does not fly. It is an ostrich. It is not in its character to fly. And if your focus is on the person who does not make the ostrich fly, you either don’t know ostriches or you just want an excuse to deny the existence of ostriches. If you want to see some flight, better bring in some eagles.
