Daily Dose

From The Collected Stories, by Lydia Davis


"I sometimes try to find an equivalent in English before I really understand the French.  Then I realize that I don't understand the French, even after trying several times, and I cast my eye rather listlessly here and there within the paragraph hoping the meaning of it will fall into place by itself, which it sometimes does.  But today it does not, and then my mind wanders."
