For those unfamiliar, those who participate share the best sentence they’ve read during the past week, “out of context and without commentary.” The sentence I’m referring to:
“Diversity matters. Not only in what we look like, or what religion we practice, or in whom we love, but also in how we live our lives, including the order in which we go about things, the seasons in which we are able to create art.”
–Source: Robin Black, “What’s So Great About Young Writers?” (The New York Times)
Sometimes you don’t need to read an entire essay or other piece of work to have its point stick, to have it inspire or provoke or do the things writers hope to do to readers with their words.
So to celebrate those flashes of work that move me in one way or another, I’m now considering myself a card-carrying member of the Sunday Sentence Club, and will share my favorites on this blog.
Here’s what hit me this week:
“An overwhelming love for oneself can be either the most cramping, shrinking and sickening passion one can suffer, or it can, on the contrary, lead to an immeasurable love for the whole of being, which is simply God and creation together.”
