    spread the wings of your personality

    Does the sentence sound natural in English?


    ----------------------

    Reading Einstein's work would help spread the wings of your personality.

    (It is simply an exercise of sentence making)

    Its structure is natural but it doesn't mean anything to me.

    That's a nice image in a grammatically correct sentence, though it doesn't relate to the thread's title. You'd have to have the right context to justify the past perfect continuous tense.
