Teaser Tuesday (31 May)

Last teaser of the month — here we go.

“But for the most part I’m bound up in ideology the same as everyone else. Yet knowing that it’s there grants us some small power over ideology, and if you squint you can see a little more clearly than most.” 

p. 89, The Ethical Assassin. David Liss.

“Isn’t it kind of beneath your dignity to let Columbia have you as sloppy seconds?”
“That’s so far beyond stupid that I don’t even know the word for it.”
“If you had a better vocabulary, maybe Harvard would have let you in.”

p. 110, The Ethical Assassin.

    Great teasers! Columbia vs. Harvard, hmmm? Well, I'd probably settle for either of those.

  4. I'd probably go with Columbia, as Asimov and Sagan both attended there. 🙂
