Teaser Tuesday - Why Grow Up by Susan Neiman

My first teaser tuesday since I came back to Japan! This book is one of the birthday presents that I got last week. Since 21 = adult in Singapore, I supposed I got this book to reflect/push me to grow up.

Anyway, my teaser:
"This is what Kant meant when he wrote that growing up is less a matter of knowledge than courage. The gulf between is and ought can turn into an abyss, sometimes, all the more if you understand that it isn't an accidental occurrence but a feature of most of the experience you will ever have." (page 122)
Really enjoying this book so far!

What is your Teaser Tuesday?


  1. Interesting teaser (I mean that in a good way)

  2. Glad you're enjoying the book and happy belated birthday!

  3. It does take courage to accept growing up. To take respomsibilty for your actions. Interesting tease.

  4. it seems like a self help book. Thanks for sharing it, Eustacia! :)

    1. It's mostly philosophy, but there's a little bit of self-help inside(:

  5. I'm not sure what to make of it, but sounds like it contains some life lessons.

  6. It definitely takes courage to "grow up" and some people are never able to do so! I think I'd like this book.
    My Tuesday post features SAVING SHELBY SUMMERS.

  7. Sounds like an interesting read.

  8. That's a really interesting idea, and teaser choice. It is a subject I've been reflecting on myself a lot. Excellent pick!
