What Animates a House

Cicero, Letters to Atticus 4.8.2 (mid-April, 56 B.C., tr. E.O. Winstedt):
Since Tyrannio has arranged my books, the house seems to have acquired a soul.

postea vero quam Tyrannio mihi libros disposuit, mens addita videtur meis aedibus.
See Andrew R. Dyck, “Mens Addita. Cicero, Ad Atticum 4.8.2,” Rheinisches Museum für Philologie 146 (2003) 425.
