I love listening to NPR. They have some of the most interesting shows and interviews. During one particular broadcast of All Things Considered, the reporter filed a story on The American Scholars’ pick of the Ten Best Sentences. These are sentences in fiction and nonfiction books that made the editors at The American Scholar pause and marvel at the beauty of words. I think their picks are remarkable and worth sharing. So if you’d like to read some beautiful words and sentences, if you’re ready for your heart to race and for the world to be righted, click here.
Until next time…to the best of life, to the best of living.
This is a great post, Ann. It’s very inspirational and motivational. The sentences are models for my own writing which I will refer to again and again. Thanks for this. 🙂
You’re so welcome. I enjoyed reading the sentences as well and have dissected them to learn about construct and flow. Alas, studying them made me want to read, and in some cases re-read, the books. Oh, if only I were paid to read!
