Using BibTeX to make a list of references without having citations in the body of the document?

I've read that "All items listed in the bibliography should be cited in the body of the paper."

But if I did not cite any item in the .tex file, how can I list the items in the bibliography? That's it, I did not want to cite any item, but to appear in the bibliography section

write \nocite{*} for all entries in the used bib data file or \nocite{<key>} for a single one, which is not cited in the text. Place these commands anywhere in your text body. I prefer the place before printing the bib.
