There are some defeats more triumphant than victories.
Michel Montaigne (1533 - 1592)

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.
My trade and my art is living.
Everyone recognizes me in my book, and my book in me.
The souls of emperors and cobblers are cast in the same mould. . . . The same reason that makes us wrangle with a neighbour causes a war betwixt princes.
The old believe everything; the middle-aged suspect everything; the young know everything.
A man is not hurt so much by what happens, as by his opinion of what happens.
