Daily Dose

From The Complete Works, by Michel de Montaigne, translated by Donald Frame


"And if by chance you fix your thought on trying to grasp its essence, it will be neither more nor less than if someone tried to grasp water: for the more he squeezes and presses what by its nature flows all over, the more he will lose what he was trying to hold and grasp."

From Apology for Raymond Sebond, (Man Can Have No Knowledge)
