Thomas Jefferson on books

I cannot live without books.

  1. This reminds me of something that happened to me. Several years ago, we were in Charlottesville, Virginia and I bought a t-shirt with that quote on it. On time when I was wearing it, a strange man came up to me and said, “I’m books.” I asked him to repeat what he said and he replied, “My name is books, you cannot live without me.” I never wore that shirt again.
