HCE is a project that invites any person to submit a sentence that makes us think again. Though you may know and treasure an inspiring or playful sentence written by someone else, this is a collection restricted to those written by the persons who submit them. The sentences below give a good idea of the range of submissions to date. Ages of the authors range from four to eighty-four. Send your sentences to Himwich@aa.edu. You will be added to the HCE mailing list. The updated collection, in which names -unlike here - are attached to each sentence, is sent out on Sundays. Please share this invitation with whoever you think may be interested.
