Sunday Sentence: The Secret History by Donna Tartt

Simply put, the best sentence(s) I've read this past week, presented out of context and without commentary.

It never occurred to me that half the population of Vermont wasn't experiencing pretty much what I put myself through every night--bone-cracking cold that made my joints ache, cold so relentless I felt it in my dreams: ice floes, lost expeditions, the lights of search planes swinging over whitecaps as I floundered alone in black Arctic seas.
