Hyperbole

As someone who never writes a sentence without exaggeration, this quote from Aristotle in this week’s Areopagus from the always excellent The Cultural Tutor hit too close to home:

Hyperboles are for young men to use; they show vehemence of character; and this is why angry people use them more than other people.

Aristotle

The chapter on stave churches also brought out a bit of my national pride. Borgund truly does look like something out of a fantasy novel.
