Teaser Tuesdays-Corrigans' Pool


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, 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!
Here is mine:

"A man may set many goals, nourish his dreams, do that which he is wont to do. But ultimately, it's what someone else may do that determines his destiny."

~Page 38, Corrigans' Pool by Dot Ryan

Nirvana toured America from April 1 to May 17 1990. However tortuous the path Cobain took after stardom, reaching that state was relatively easy.

The Westie Loving Therapist said...

This quote is so true! No matter how much we want to be or how much we think we are in control, very little of the time are we truly the masters of our fate.

My teaser is here...http://westietherapy.blogspot.com/2010/01/teaser-tuesday-these-three-remain.html

fleurfisher said...

Sad, but true. Good teaser!

Marie Burton said...

Yes indeed. Since my father refused to help me pay for college, I couldn't afford to finish. =( Basically set the path for the rest of my life.

My teaser is up at The Burton Review.

Alayne said...

That is a really good quote for a teaser. Mine is at The Crowded Leaf.

CeeCee said...

Thought provoking and sad.

Creations by Laurel-Rain Snow said...

Isn't that the truth? Powerful thoughts...

Kaye said...

So true, no matter what your plan is, it's easily derailed by someone else's action.

Seeing that Fl had a few snow flakes this past weekend my teaser is from the Chocolate Snowman Murders and can be found here

The Muse said...

I dont have access to my reads right now, but wow, this is neat...

I am intrigued by some of the book excerpts I have read here.

Shelly said...

Wow, that's quite a statement. I haven't read this book but it sounds interesting!

JoAnn said...

Sad, but often true I'm afraid...

Marquetta said...

Wow! What a great teaser! It sounds like it could be one of those quotes about life.

Vicki said...

I never thought about that, but it is true~

Novroz said...

This isn't just a teaser...this is also a good quote.

There's also a similar quote from my religion 'Human may makes plans but in the end God decides the outcome of those plans'

Jo-Jo said...

Very insightful teaser and it is sadly true.

Lisa said...

How true that teaser is! Good one!

fredamans said...

Well now, that's a true but depressing thought. Life's full of nasty little surprises, right? Good teaser, though!

Stephanie aka The Stark Raving Bibliophile said...

That is a thought-provoking teaser!

Great book teaser! Stopping by from SITS!

That reminds me of one of my all-time fave quotes: "Geography is destiny." - Napoleon

Great teaser. I'd like to read this book!

rajm said...

Yes, absolutely! If that isn't too pessimistic

Jennifer @ Mrs. Q: Book Addict said...

sumanam said...

Isn't that sad? but to some extent true..

Amy said...

Really good teaser!

jheaton said...

Sounds like an interesting book! And thanks for visiting my journal earlier today.

Sun Singer said...

Ah, a rather dour teaser, but a sentiment that seems true more often than we like to believe.

Wanda said...

The unfortunate wisdom of that teaser has seen the demise of more than a few men and women!

Thanks for reading mine earlier. :)

Susan B. Evans said...

Interesting teaser this week. I've not heard of this book before, but I'll look it up :)

longbrakeliving said...

Very interesting - I'm not sure that I agree, but I sure am intrigued!

Lizzy said...

Interesting teaser, and definitely true!

celi.a said...

Fate, providence, coincidence...they all conspire to keep a person from 'something.' Interesting thought in this teaser! Thanks for coming by my blog!

Ladybug said...

A meaningful and true quote.

The Wandering Reader said...

Wow; so true, but also very sad. Wonderful teaser though--definitely has me intrigued.

Thank you so much for stopping by my Teaser Tuesday. Have a great day!

Lisa-Marie Jordan said...

Interesting teaser! Thanks for visiting me!

avisannschild said...

Hmm, not sure I totally agree with that one. What someone else may do plays a part, obviously, but I'm not sure about "determine."

I'm sorry my teaser didn't work for you. Hopefully, I've fixed it now!
