Here are more great examples of words eloquently or imaginatively written for the enjoyment of readers:
“The files holding the data are as thick as unabridged dictionaries.” – Joshua Wolf Shenk in The Atlantic, “What Makes Us Happy?”
“I’m at home a lot, begging for quiet from a child who has the same need for exercise as an Arabian horse.” – Quinn Cummings on her blog book tour, on Quiet Elegance
“Big waves were front-page news around here this weekend. We went to the beach to see Mother Nature show her teeth, and though I have lived my entire life in Southern California, I’d never seen waves that breathtaking.” – Danny Evans on his blog, Dad Gone Mad.
