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.”

That will be the work of all the rest of our days: to hold this pain and this beauty side by side, without letting the one crush or crowd out the other.

Against a plain background, the hashtag #SundaySentence appears.
