Literary Lines–September 24

“No matter how good you are with words, it’s inevitable that meaning is lost between your mind and someone else’s.  Trying to communicate is like chucking a cup of water at a thirsty person’s face.  It’s better than nothing, sure, and a teaspoon of water might hit their lips, but oh, God, there’s just so much water in the grass.”

–from page 2 of Jacqueline Novak’s How to Weep in Public
