Cicero, Letters to His Friends 9.26.1 (tr. W. Glynn Williams):Newer› ‹Older
Live, you say, in your books. Do you suppose that I do anything else? Or could I live at all, were it not that I lived in my books?Logan Pearsall Smith, All Trivia: Trivia, More Trivia, Afterthoughts, Last Words (New York: Harcourt, Brace and Company, 1945), p. 177 (from Myself, in Afterthoughts):
vivas, inquis, in litteris. an quidquam me aliud agere censes? aut possem vivere, nisi in litteris viverem?
People say that life is the thing, but I prefer reading.
