Words in the Week: from Margaret Atwood's- The Handmaid's Tale

One of my favorite lines from Margaret Atwood's book, The Handmaid's Tale...

"It's impossible to say a thing exactly the way it was because what you say can never be exact, you always have to leave something out, there are too many parts, sides, cross currents, nuances; too many gestures, which could mean this or that, too many shapes which can never be fully described, too many flavors, in the air or on the tongue, half colors, too many."
