      Worth the read and enjoy the philosophy

      I have read Montaigne for years including during higher education. While his views reflect a different era his observations of the human condition are relevant. “Man is stark mad; he cannot make a flea, and yet he will be making gods by the dozens.”
      ―Michel de Montaigne - words of wisdom! I nearly called my son 'Etienne' who was Montaigne's best friend.

    Nobody in Western civilization had ever tried to do what Montaigne set out to do. In a vivid, contemporary style he moves swiftly from thought to thought, often digressing from an idea only to return, having caught up with it elsewhere. In these essays, Montaigne lays out for his contemporaries and for us his plan for how a man might wisely live and wisely die - as he sets out to discover himself.
