A long complicated sentence…

Another find via Bobulate:

A long complicated sentence should force itself upon you, make you know yourself knowing it and the comma, well at the most a comma is a poor period that it lets you stop and take a breath but if you want to take a breath you ought to know yourself that you want to take a breath.

Gertrude Stein excerpted from the 1935 “Poetry and Grammar.”
