Michel de Montaigne – We are richer than we think we are

Share this quote:
Michel de MontaigneWe are all of us richer than we think we are; but we are taught to borrow and to beg, and brought up more to make use of what is another’s than our own. Man can in nothing fix and conform himself to his mere necessity. Of pleasure, wealth and power he grasps at more than he can hold; his greediness is incapable of moderation.

Michel de Montaigne
