“The pursuit of knowing was freedom to me, the right to declare your own curiosities and follow them through all manner of books. I was made for the library, not the classroom. The classroom was a jail of other people’s interest. The library was open, unending, free.”

–  Ta-Nehisi Coates, Between the World and Me
