A little later, I was elected head of the library.
I had thousands of books constantly at my disposal. I
lost no time diving into this ocean of knowledge. It was the
moment wherein I built a vast general knowledge of diverse
cultures of the world. My dream was becoming reality. I read
all day long…Hugo, Balzac, Zola, Goethe, Dante, Dostoievski,
Gorky, Tolstoy, Beaudelaire, Rimbaud, Cervantes, Voltaire,
Hain, Wilde, Mevlana, Einstein, Newton, Galileo, Freud… the
moderns, classics: science, literature, pedagogy, anthropology,
metaphysics, pathology, archaeology, anatomy, astronomy, psychology,
art history, art criticism, poetry, the biographies of great
scientists and artists…My curiosity was limitless and the
library soon became too small.
