Tuesday Teaser: The Brothers Karamazov

"Brothers, love is a teacher; but one must know how to acquire it, for it is hard to acquire, it is dearly bought, it is won slowly by long labour. For we must love not only occasionally, for a moment, but for ever. Every one can love occasionally, even the wicked can."

(The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dosteoevsky, Part 2, Bk. 6, Chpt. 3, Pg. 294)

Aw, I really like that! I have no idea what Brothers Karmazov is about, but that quote definitely made me curious to find out!

That's a classic I still need to read. My post is here.

I have the Brothers K on my TBR shelf. Gotta get to it; love Dostoevsky. Great teaser!
