A friend once showed me the blog of an American writer who’d come to stay with his family in France, and in one piece had written the line, and then we ate bread, just so we could eat butter.

What a line.

What a wonderful, wonderful, quotable, Tweetable, repeatable line: we ate bread so we could eat butter.... 

And sometime earlier, Miss Stein sat up and smiled, as she raised a cup to her mouth, ah yes, and a rose is a rose is a rose…

 Part of the same sentence perhaps.

Lets meditate.
