“What draws people to letters in general as things to buy is that feeling of making a really direct connection with a historical figure. You’ve got a piece of paper, it was a blank piece of paper when that person put it in front of them, and they filled it with a part of themselves.”

“This may or may not appeal to you—this moving, this nomadic existence, and this nonattached life. I am not suggesting we all leave our relationships and homes and children. Not at all. I am proposing that we reconceive the dream. That we consider what would happen if security were not the point of our existence.
