Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just open your current read to a random page and share a few sentences. Be careful not to include spoilers!
I can’t tell you how happy I am to be reimmersed in Edward Abbey. For today’s teaser, I’ve chosen a crudely-stated bit of philosophy that I enjoyed, uttered by an unnamed character in a jailhouse scene:
Serenity is for the gods – not becoming in a mortal. Better to be partisan and passionate on this earth; be plenty objective enough when dead.
Something about this sentiment struck me. I like the idea of being partisan and passionate on this earth. Maybe because I am.
