Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesday

The rules come from MizB of Should Be Reading.

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!

This week's teaser comes from Food Ethics edited by Paul Pojman. Some nonfiction, but this has been dominating my reading time currently due to it being a class text.

(pg 92) Garett Hardin's Lifeboat Ethics

""Man can not live by bread alone"-the scriptural statement has a rich meaning even in the material realm. Every human being born constitutes a draft on all aspects of the environment-food, air, water, unspoiled scenery, occasional an optional solitude, beaches, contact with wild animals, fishing, hunting- the list is long and incompletely known."
