Teaser Tuesdays

See other teasers at Should Be Reading.

I'm doing 2 today, because I've been a major slacker.

"Meat eating was part of Ghandi's revolt against religion. He disliked the 'glitter and pomp' of Hindu temples and confessed that he had no 'living faith in God'."
--Ghandi: His Life and Message for the World, Louis Fischer (pg 12)

"Still, one must look about sometimes; and then I saw this station, these men strolling aimlessly about in the sunshine of the yard. I asked myself sometimes what it all meant."

--Heart of Darkness, Joseph Conrad

Great teaser!

I read a book about Ghandi, but I don't think that is the one.
