A Reflective Life (Michel de Montaigne)

A French philosopher from the 16th century advises humility on what we don’t know, but that we are still born to inquire after the truth.

“It [truth] is not, as Democritus said, hid in the bottom of the deeps, but rather elevated to an infinite height in the divine knowledge. The world is but a school of inquisition: it is not who shall enter the ring, but who shall run the best courses.”
Michel de Montaigne
