Simply put, the best sentence(s) I've read this past week, presented out of context and without commentary.
"And you seem to see numbers of tomorrows just all in a line, the first of them the biggest and clearest, the others getting smaller and smaller as they stand farther away; but they all seem very fierce and cruel and as if they said, "I'm coming! Beware of me! Beware of me!" "
Tess of the D'Urbervilles by Thomas Hardy
