A room without books is like a body without a soul
"A room without books is like a body without a soul." -Cicero
According to Sir John Lubbock in his book 'The Pleasures of Life', Cicero described a room without books as a body without a soul. But it is by no means necessary to be a philosopher to love reading. Reading, indeed, is by no means necessarily study. Far from it.
This quote is however often disputed.
