Sunday Sentence

CV1_TNY_02_17_14Columbo_spine.indd
Another Sunday in which I participate in David Abrams’s “Sunday Sentence” project, which asks others to share the best sentence(s) we’ve read during the past week, “out of context and without commentary.”

Never, never, never, never, never.

  1. Very useful one I think.

    • Sergiusz, if you have time to read the whole piece, I strongly recommend that you do so. The sentence is so powerful in its context.

  2. This is a beautiful tribute indeed, Erika. And it’s full of “Sunday Sentences” (example: “The only true currency in this bankrupt world is what you share with someone else when you’re uncool.”).
    My initial response was an off-context one, of course.
    BTW I really like FSH as Jacob Elinsky in Spike Lee’s 25th Hour.
