Sunday Sentence: The sentence(s) that touched me this week, out of context and without commentary. Inspired by David Abrams at The Quivering Pen.

To him, I think, the idea of consequence was always an afterthought.  He did not expect consequences, he discovered them.  When he could, he laughed them away.  When they pressed in through his laughter, he shut his mouth and bore them.  What he had done was his fate, and so he bore it.
