TT: Seven words

my_life_in_a_nutshell.jpgThe indispensable Maria Popova recently pointed to a cache of "seven-word autobiographies of famous writers, artists, musicians, and philosophers." Some are clever, some coy, some smug. (Joan Didion: "Seven words do not yet define me.")

Not especially clever--except, perhaps, for the ellipsis--but at least it's accurate. So far.
