It always seems to me that one of the saddest things about the death of a literary man is the fact that the breaking-up of his collection of books almost invariably follows; the building up of a good library, the work of a lifetime, has been so much labour lost, so far as future generations are concerned.

My alma mater was books, a good library. Every time I catch a plane, I have with me a book that I want to read and that’s a lot of books these days. If I weren’t out here every day battling the white man, I could spend the rest of my life reading, just satisfying my curiosity because you can hardly mention anything I’m not curious about.malcolm (malcolm little) x
