“Never trust anyone whose TV is bigger than their bookshelf”

"Never trust anyone whose TV is bigger than their bookshelf” (or “Never argue with someone whose TV is bigger than their bookshelf") is a saying that has been printed on many images. That is, it’s better for a person to read books than to watch television. Many people now have wide flat screen televisions.

“My father always says, ‘Never trust anyone who has a TV bigger than their bookshelf.’ So I make sure I read. Back at home, I just put up a massive bookcase and asked everyone I know and love to help me fill it with their favorite books. It’s been quite nice because I’ve learned a lot about my friends and family from what they’ve been giving me. A book says a lot about a person.” — Emilia Clarke for Instyle UK (April 2014)
