The Wisdom of the Ages


"If you have a garden and a library,
you have everything you need."
 
~~Marcus Tullius Cicero (106 BCE - 43 BCE)
(Ancient Roman Lawyer, Writer,
Scholar, Orator, and Statesman)
 
I don't know about you, but I'm pretty sure Cicero nailed this one!

  2. Funny how words of wisdom find their way through the ages. My grandmother and my mother used to say, "all you need is a pack of seeds and a library card."

    1. Thanks, LOL! I'm practicing so I can someday take photos like yours. But then, meanwhile, you'll get even better. It's a vicious circle, I fear... :)

  6. Yes. Totally. Agree.

    Makes me always wonder how often I discover 'nowadays behaviour of life' in ancient books.

    Please have a good Thursday.

    1. Isn't that something? I guess human nature doesn't change that much.

      You too!

  8. First things first, Chieftess. After the books, you can worry about the incidentals.

  9. What's a kitchen without something from a garden to cook? And what's a bathroom without something to read while you're there?
