3/3 So he does not in fact say "If you have a garden and a library, you have everything': a nice, pretty notion, but not what Cicero wrote.

@damonayoung Absolutely right, I just double-checked. He's referring to Epicurus; it's not a nice quote about gardens and libraries!

2/2 "If you have 'the Garden' in your library, you have everything." He's referring to "the Garden" of Epicurus, in a philosophical context.
