Since I would rather make of him [the child] an able man than a learned man, I would also urge that care be taken to Choose a guide [tutor] with a well-made rather than a well-filled head.
Michel Montaigne (1533 - 1592)

Ambition is not a vice of little people.
He who establishes his argument by noise and command shows that his reason is weak.
For truth itself does not have the privilege to be employed at any time and in every way; its use, noble as it is, has its circumscriptions and limits.
Men are most apt to believe what they least understand.
A man of understanding has lost nothing, if he has himself.
Virtue can have naught to do with ease. . . . It craves a steep and thorny path.
The greatest thing in the world is to know how to belong to oneself.
A man must keep a little back shop where he can be himself without reserve. In solitude alone can he know true freedom.
