Daily Dose

Montaigne's Essays, Volume One, translated by John Florio


"Had we beene borne needing petti-coats and breeches, there is no doubt, but nature would have armed that which she hath left to the batterie of seasons, and furie of wethers with some thicker skin or hide, as shee hath done our finger ends, and the soales of our feet."

From The First Booke Chap XXXV
