"Swift is one of the writers
I admire with least reserve,
and Gulliver's Travels, in particular,
is a book which it seems impossible for me
to grow tired of…
If I had to make a list of six books
which were to be preserved
when all others were destroyed, I would
certainly put Gulliver's Travels among them."
