Later

I couldn’t afford luxuries … like music … and non-textbook reading material … and clothes. So I shoplifted. Under no circumstances am I advocating such a practice; but it seems to me that if your soul truly cries out for music and books, and you cannot afford them … steal them. And repay society later.

—Harlan Ellison reflecting on his time as a college student in The Harlan Ellison Hornbook
