Quote by Lena Dunham
I'm ridiculous in my oversharing my mom and sister are very open but a little more judicious than me... and my father is a decidedly private person.
This quote reflects the speaker's realization that they tend to openly share personal information, often to a ridiculous extent. While the speaker's mother and sister may also be open, they exercise more discretion in what they divulge. On the other hand, the speaker's father is portrayed as someone who values privacy greatly and is less inclined to share personal details. This quote showcases the varying degrees of openness within the speaker's family and highlights their own tendency towards oversharing.
Every accent, every emphasis, every modulation of voice, was so perfectly well turned and well placed, that, without being interested in the subject, one could not help being pleased with the discourse; a pleasure of much the same kind with that received from an excellent piece of music. This is an advantage itinerant preachers have over those who are stationary, as the latter can not well improve their delivery of a sermon by so many rehearsals.
