GAITHERSBURG, MD (Ealge News) — This Gaithersburg community garden library, by the looks and feel of it, is suitable for meetings and plannings while the kids are busy playing in the playground.
Cicero’s quote was adapted from a letter he wrote requesting a meeting with friend Varro in 46 B.C.
“If you have a garden in your library,” he wrote to Varro, “everything will be complete.”
When he said, “everything will be complete”, he was referring to a productive meeting.
Back then, the Roman garden was designed for thinking, philosophizing and discussions.
