William Shakespeare
“True hope is swift, and flies with swallow's wings.”
William Shakespeare

“they dip and dance like barn swallows at dusk
glancing wingtip-to-wingtip against a lavender sky
barely touching - yet, each creating thermals for the other
to catch and ride - higher and yet, higher - towards a pale star...”
Kate Mullane Robertson

Marcel Proust
“Then the concerts came to an end, the weather turned bad and my girls left Balbec, not all at once, as the swallows leave, but within the same week.”
Marcel Proust, In the Shadow of Young Girls in Flower

“Later, Ella looked for the two swallows in the eaves outside the window, watching them even more closely now. The thought of them flying all that way, across mountains and seas and returning here, because this was their home - of them knowing how to find it - changed things. It was a new way of seeing; this was no longer just the place where women and men were kept, but the home of other creatures too, ones that had travelled far and still chosen it because this, above all other places, was the place to bring their families into the world.”
Anna Hope, The Ballroom
