“My father, a man without any means, a student, before 1914, travelled the whole of Europe with a University of Vienna student canteen card, and there was only one bizarre country called the Russian Empire which had something called a visa. This was regarded as comical, as asiatic throughout the rest of Europe. Today, bureaucracies of exclusion prevail.” – George Steiner, No Passion Spent
