Marcus Tullius Cicero

I criticize by creation, not by finding fault.
Times are bad. Children no longer obey their parents, and everyone is writing a book.
It is foolish to tear one’s hair in grief, as though sorrow would be made less by baldness.

A room without books is like a body without a soul.
