Once a dunce void of learning but full of books flouted a libraryless scholar with these words: 'Salve, doctor sine libris.' But the next day the scholar coming into this jeerer's study, crowded with books; 'Salvete libri,' saith he, 'sine doctore.'

Thomas Fuller, The Holy State and the Profane State, 1642.
