There's a special providence in the fall of a sparrow.
If it be now, 'tis not to come;
if it be not to come, it will be now;
if it be not now, yet it will come: the readiness is all.
- Hamlet, Act V, Scene II, 3853-3856
Are not two sparrows sold for a penny?
And not one of them will fall to the ground without your Father’s will.
But even the hairs of your head are all numbered.
Fear not, therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.
- Revised Standard Version Bible, Matthew 10: 29-31
