Living to Tell the Tale - Gabriel Garcia Marquez

This quote was added by dbldrm
His relationship with money was very personal. Once when my mother caught him scratching at the money for the market in her purse, his defense was somewhat savage, but lucid: the money one takes without permission from the purses of one's parents cannot be a theft because the money belongs to everybody in common and they deny it to us out of envy because they cannot do with it what their children do.
