> Swift does not believe in the no-win scenario. It does not assume that strong typing must be cumbersome, that memory-safe code must be slow, or that a language must choose whether to be high-level or low-level. If two things are desirable, it doesn't just balance them against each other; it finds a way to get more of both than you would have thought possible, usually through careful design and 

compile-time logic.
