  • I'm adding this word more for this alluring bit of prose than any beauty in the word itself:

    "Smith, Pollard, and the Howards were soon intimately familiar with the strange gravity of celebrity. The earth seemed to dip under Seabiscuit's hoof-falls, pulling the world in toward him and everyone around him."

    —Laura Hillenbrand, Seabiscuit: An American Legend (New York: Ballantine Books, 2001), 153
