Quotes from Michel Eyquem de Montaigne


Read it Slow

I think of physic as much good or ill as any one would have me: for we have no traffic together. I am of a quite contrary humour to other men, for I always despise it; but when I am sick, instead of recanting, or entering into composition with it, I begin…to hate and fear it, telling them who importune me to take physic, that at all events they must give me time to recover my strength and health, that I may be the better able to support and encounter the violence and danger of their potions.

Michel Eyquem de Montaigne
