Daily Dose

From The Complete Works, by Michel de Montaigne, translated by Donald M. Frame


"The shape of my library is round, the only flat side being the part needed for my table and chair; and curving round me it presents at a glance all my books, arranged in five rows of shelves on all sides. It offers rich and free views in three directions, and sixteen paces of free space in diameter."

From Of Three Kinds of Association
