Random Quote Friday

"Working with language is a means by which we can identify the bullshit within ourselves (and others). If we learn what a truthful sentence looks like, a little flag goes up at a false one."
~~George Saunders, "Thank You, Esther Forbes" in The Braindead Megaphone: Essays


  1. ...and thus is the world littered with little flapping flags. ;)

  2. Reminds me of Hemingway's quote about writers needing to develop a built-in bullshit detector.
    Words to live by!
