“There is many a young cockerel that will stand upon a dunghill and crow about his father, by way of making his own plumage to shine.” ~ Cousin Phillis by Elizabeth Gaskell

Nothing in the world is quite as adorably lovely as a robin when he shows off-and they are nearly always doing it. ~ The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett

“Do you know,” Peter asked “why swallows build in the eaves of houses? It is to listen to the stories.” ~ Peter Pan by James M. Barrie

All is going on as it was wont. The waves are hoarse with repetition of their mystery; the dust lies piled upon the shore; the sea-birds soar and hover; the winds and clouds go forth upon their trackless flight; the white arms beckon, in the moonlight, to the invisible country far away. ~ Dombey and Son by Charles Dickens
