Flaubert's Errand #7
5 exquisitely crafted sentences of prose I encountered in my recent reading.
"Keep the company of those who seek the truth; run from those who have found it.”
"... that feeling of personalities colliding and conspiring in the serendipity of a moment—that makes a restaurant so essential to the hum of a community."
"This has the polemical energy of a contrarian attack on a lazy bromide."
"To put it in allegorical terms, the E.U. is restricting the size of the castle even as it dramatically increases the moat."
"Gossip may be unaccountable, but it can force accountability."
