Every weekend I participate in David Abrams’s “#SundaySentence” project, sharing the best sentence I’ve read during the past week, “out of context and without commentary.”

“C’est comme ça que le français m’a servi dans ma vie.”

Source: Stella Levi, quoted in Michael Frank, One Hundred Saturdays: Stella Levi and the Search for a Lost World. (Translation, according to me: “And that is how French served me in my life.”)

Against a plain background, the hashtag #SundaySentence appears.
