Flaubert's Errand #4
5 exquisitely crafted sentences of prose I encountered in my recent reading.
“The EU is left with a botched Kevin Costner project: they built it, but nobody came.”
“A strange truth about communicating is that we don’t get to choose whether we do it or not. In the presence of others, we are always sending messages, as helplessly as a star emits light.”
“The heretical tribes on the fringes of economics yearn to sack Rome. But it is more efficient to convert the emperor.”
"Fantasy sport is more or less asset-stripping the statistics of the game."
"Gossip may be untrustworthy, but I find it hard to trust those who don’t engage in it."
