Library in a Garden

There's a quote attributed to Cicero (among others):
"A library in a garden! The phrase seems to contain the whole felicity of man."

Whoever said it, I'm sure he would have loved the Huntington Library.
You get to see a Gutenberg Bible or a Bukowski first edition or the gorgeous Birds of America by John James Audubon and when you're tired of books (it could happen, I guess), you walk out into this:

I think I'm in love.
