Teaser Tuesdays, hosted at Should Be Reading, asks you to:
I'm sick, so no rebellious poetry or snarky comments. Just the quote, ma'am; just the quote.
Grab your current read. Let the book fall open to a random page. Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12. You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given.
"I wonder if it wouldn't be simpler just to teach children from the start that life is absurd. That might deprive you of a few good moments of your childhood but it would save you considerable time as an adult--not to mention the fact that you'd be spared at least one traumatic experience, i.e. the goldfish bowl." p. 23
From The Elegance of the Hedgehog, by Muriel Barbery.
