So long as ignorance and poverty exist on earth

So long as ignorance and poverty exist on earth, books of the nature of Les Miserables cannot fail to be of use.
— Victor Hugo

“C’est dommage que je sois un ignorant,
car je vous citerais une foule de choses;
mais je ne sais rien.”
(
Grantaire)


For my friend, who loves Les Miserables, on their birthday.
