As much as I read, you’d think I wouldn’t say this, but: There are very few nights when I go to bed still thinking of two powerful lines I’ve encountered that day.
Tonight, I’m pleased to say, I can go to bed thinking of these exceptional and absolutely simple lines:
“She noticed a lady with a hem falling down.”– from Rosie Horner’s “Gracefully Becoming a Golden Oldie.”
“He looks like a war crime waiting to happen.” -from Christopher Vourlias’ “Fewer bombs, better beaches, and why I should have never left Burundi.”
Why are both effective?
They’re short. They’re simple. They convey a powerful image that drives home the point of the article in a totally fresh way.
