"There is a dull longing in us that we cannot name and cannot describe. [...] In strange silence millions of the unredeemed, misled, betrayed, despairing, subjugated, the army of slaves is waiting for a word, a sound."
This is from his diary, and to be honest, if I didn't know that this was by Goebbels and about Hitler, I would have thought the sentences beautiful. But I know who wrote this, and what for, so I can't say that these sentences are inspiring, beautiful or any positive adjective.
What is your teaser?
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
- Grab your current read
- Open to a random page
- Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
- BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
- Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
