Literary Lines

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
