I'm back from the trip, which was...interesting (to put it nicely). I'm just really glad that I'm back home right now. And after the trip, I got into this "I don't know what I want to read" mood, so I'm actually juggling two books right now. One of them is Maxims and Reflections by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, and it's a collection of the stuff he wrote, so it's very easy to read in bits and pieces.
"72. Certain books are apparently written not so that we may learn from them, but to demonstrate the fact that the author knew something.
73. They whip up curds hoping it might turn into cream."
I also like this additional line:
"91. Anyone who doesn't know foreign languages knows nothing of his own."
I think it's one that can inspire plenty of debate!
What are you reading this week?
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by Jenn of Books and a Beat. 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!
