The words used to form this artwork are: 

  • No amount of observations of white swans can allow the inference that all swans are white, but the observation of a single black swan is sufficient to refute that conclusion.
  • His own image; no longer a dark, gray bird, ugly and disagreeable to look at, but a graceful and beautiful swan. To be born in a duck's nest, in a farmyard, is of no consequence to a bird, if it is hatched from a swan's egg.
  • This wild swan of a world is no hunter's game. Better bullets than yours would miss the white breast, Better mirrors than yours would crack in the flame.
  • The river is such a tranquil place, a place to sit and think of romance and the beauty of nature, to enjoy the elegance of swans and the chance of a glimpse of a kingfisher.
  • There's a double beauty whenever a swan Swims on a lake with her double thereon.
  • The swan in the pool is singing, And up and down doth he steer, And, singing gently ever, dips under the water clear.
  • But calm, white calm, was born into a swan
  • A rare bird upon the earth, and very much like a black swan.
  • All our geese are swans.
  • The swan, like the soul of the poet, By the dull world is ill understood.
  • The swan, with arched neck Between her white wings mantling proudly, rows Her state with oary feet.
  • Thus does the white swan, as he lies on the wet grass, when the Fates summon him, sing at the fords of Maeander.
  • Some full-breasted swan That, fluting a wild carol ere her death, Ruffles her pure cold plume, and takes the flood With swarthy webs.
  • The immortal swan that did her life deplore.
  • The swan in the pool is singing, And up and down doth he steer, And, singing gently ever, Dips under the water clear.
  • The swan murmurs sweet strains with a flattering tongue, itself the singer of its own dirge.
