- The child of the panther will have the spirit of the panther, nor need the young bear be taught to climb trees, nor the eaglet to fly." - "Traditions of the North American Indians, Vol. 3 (of 3)", James Athearn Jones.
- The chief's eye flashed; but presently Softened itself, as sheathes A film the mother eagle's eye When her bruised eaglet breathes. - "Journeys Through Bookland Volume Four", Charles H. Sylvester.
- Where the eaglet, high in air, Or the wild white ibis, dazes Eyes that follow them up the blue, As the heart would do, the heart too! - "Sea Poems", Cale Young Rice.
