Extracts from the writings of Michel de Montaigne

One should always have one’s boots on

and be ready to leave.

I want death to find me planting my

cabbages, but caring little for it, and much

more for my imperfect garden.

Wheresoever your life endeth, there is it all. 

The profit of life consists not in the

space, but rather in the use.  Some have

lived long who have lived but a short while.

Whether you have lived enough

depends upon yourself, not on the number

of your years.  There is no road that doth

not have an end, and, if company is solace,

doth not the whole world go the same way?


Michel de Montaigne (1533 – 1592)
