Teaser Tuesdays

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme/event hosted by MizB of Should be Reading. 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!


My Teaser:-

Richard from Texas brought it to my attention recently, when I was complaining about my inability to stop brooding. He said, "You need to learn how to select your thoughts just the same way you select what clothes you're gonna wear every day. This is a power you can cultivate. If you want to control things in your life so bad, work on the mind. That's the only thing you should be trying to control. Drop everything else but that. Because if you cant learn to master your thinking, you're in deep trouble forever"

-Page 187, "Eat Pray Love" by Elizabeth Gilbert

Have a wonderful Tuesday! :)

Excellent quote! I have this book, but haven't read it yet. It is still packed in a box in the garage after my move last year. I'm a very slow unpacker!
