Own only what you can carry with you; know language, know countries, know people. Let your memory be your travel bag. - Alexander Solzhenitsyn
Yeah, well, be careful you never give any of those books to a sweetheart for their birthday. My old roommate once unthinkingly gave her boyfriend Kerouac's On The Road, and two days later he got on the first plane to America and never came back.My opinion on the matter (which of course I didn't share) is that anyone unable to overlook the misogyny in Kerouac wasn't the sort of person one should have for a boyfriend, however.
