A quote from the Russian writer/critic Viktor Shklovsky, found in this post about Zamyatin:

You have to store up books, becoming acquainted with human experience; let them lie around your thoughts, becoming yours – ring upon ring, as a tree grows, let them rise up from the depths like coral islands.

If it gets crowded with all the books and there’s nowhere to put your bed, it’s better to exchange it for a folding bed.
