Flaubert's Errand #6
5 exquisitely crafted sentences of prose I encountered in my recent reading.
"When analytic thought, the knife, is applied to experience, something is always killed in the process."
"But spending on aid to stop migration is like buying a car for the cup-holders, says Mr Clist—it misses the point."
"It’s like a denial-of-service attack on their brains."
"The Hong Kong Stock Exchange (hkex) resembles a financial estuary, says Charles Li, its boss. China’s capital flows mix with the open seas of global markets."
"Government is the Entertainment division of the military-industrial complex."
