Sunday Sentence: Edison by Edmund Morris

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

The revolution Edison had wrought was so unobtrusive and at the same time so world changing that few, if any, of the people who experienced it realized what had happened: an end to the counterbalance of night and day that had obtained for all of human history, mocking the attempts of torchbearers and lamplighters and gas companies to alter it with their puny waves of flame.
