Favorite Sentence from Yi Jiang

“New York has no pity:it’s every man for himself, and since you are yourself and a half, you fall behind.”

 

From Annan Quindlen. “Pregnant in New York”.The Place Where we Dwell: reading and writing about New York City.Eds. Juanita But, Mark Noonan, and Sean Scanlan. Dubuque, IA: Kendall Hunt, 2012. 20. Print.

 

  Regardless where you are on the world, life is competition, and you will always be competing with someone. If people want to be succeeded ,they should not care about certain things too much, otherwise, it  is not only difficult for them to be truly competitive, they might fall behind as well. 
(The original sentence kind of lesson to tell to reader if you care more thing than other people do, you fall behind through the author own  experience, and what was I created sentence, that is  same lesson I want to tell.)

Jesus’s Favorite Sentence

” I know I’ve lost my mind. But I’m not concerned, because its the first thing i’ve lost in a long time that actually feels good.”

I can honestly say that this is my favorite sentence in any work of literature i’ve ever read,  due to the simplicity of it. In our tireless lives we never find a moment of just bliss and this sentence represents the ultimate bliss, inner peace if you will. The idea of someone being able to conform to worrying and thinking about nothing is an idea that to me is unfathomable. Which is why it appeals to me so much. Id love to reach a state of simplicity.

Evison, Jonathan. The Revised Fundamentals Of Caregiving. NY:

Algonquin Books, 2012. 46. Print.

“My dog ran away. But i wasn’t worried, because i know he knows his way home.”

Statement, and Secondary statement going against the initial statement.

Joel’s Favorite Sentence

I’m here because I was born here and thus ruined for anywhere else, but I don’t know about you. Maybe you’re from here, too, and sooner or later it will come out that we used to live a block away from each other and didn’t even know it.

 

Whitehead, Colson. “The Colossus of New York.” The Place Where we Dwell: reading and writing about New York City.Eds. Juanita But, Mark Noonan, and Sean Scanlan. Dubuque, IA: Kendall Hunt, 2012. 6. Print.
