Words which play over and over in my head...

I've lately been intrigued by well-structured sentences.

Here are a few I have read recently (soak 'em in!):

"Anne hoped she had outlived the age of blushing; but the age of emotion she certainly had not."
-Jane Austen (Persuasion)

"All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be."
-Psalm 139:16b

"The universe rings true wherever you fairly test it."
-C.S. Lewis (Surprised by Joy)

"This is staggering and humbling on a multitude of levels, and our gratitude is truly boundless."
-Sara Joy at blog.joellives.com

"His face that hitherto may have been strange and intolerable to me is transformed through intercession into the countenance of a brother for whom Christ died."
-Dietrich Bonhoeffer (Life Together)

"On the very rare occasion that I hear a baseball game floating from someone's radio, I am instantly in your home where baseball games so often provided a quiet, steady soundtrack to our summer days."
-Megan at sortacrunchy.typepad.com

Here's to good writing!

Oh, wow. You are too, TOO kind. Words fail for how humbled I am to be included in that list.

This from CS Lewis - "The universe rings true wherever you fairly test it." LOVE.
