Best sentence from the most recent stack of essays (Juniors in high school):

"Personally I believe people loyal to the church were bewildered and
 felt double-crossed which drove the laity straight into the arms of
 thinking for themselves and coming to their own conclusions, rather
 than the Bible making their own conclusions for them."


This is even better --

"European men and women were inspired by the growing freedom that
allowed them to express their imaginations without conviction."

I can hardly type it . . . .  I guess I should take a break from grading
. . . .
