The Most Beautiful Paragraph or Sentence You’ve Ever Read

Audrey Reading

Back in May, I saw a Reddit page which posed the question:

“What’s the most beautiful paragraph or sentence you’ve ever read?”

I haven’t been able to stop thinking about people’s answers since (seriously, check it out), and decided to share a few of my own favourite quotes …

“They passed each other in the very center of the street. The faintest gleam of their lost memories glimmered for the briefest moment in their hearts. Each felt a rumbling in their chest. And they knew: She is the 100% perfect girl for me. He is the 100% perfect boy for me.” – Haruki Murakami, On Seeing The 100% Perfect Girl One Beautiful April Morning

“He looked at her the way all women want to be looked at by a man.” – F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

“And the air was full of Thoughts and Things to Say. But at times like these, only the Small Things are ever said. Big Things lurk unsaid inside.” – Arundhati Roy, The God of Small Things

“Kumiko and I felt something for each other from the start. It was not one of those strong, impulsive feelings that can hit two people like an electric shock when they first meet, but something quieter and gentler, like two tiny lights travelling in tandem through a vast darkness and drawing imperceptibly closer to each other as they go. As our meetings grew more frequent, I felt not so much that I had met someone new as that I had chanced upon a dear old friend.” –  Haruki Murakami, The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle

“The lessons? Women are mighty. Doing something together is often more fun than doing it alone. And you don’t always have to win to get the pudding.” – Amy Poehler, Yes Please
