“It is an accomplishment, absolute and as it were God-like, to know how to enjoy our being as we ought.  We seek other attributes because we do not understand the use of our own; and having no knowledge of what is within, we sally forth outside of ourselves.  A fine thing to get up on stilts: for even on stilts we must ever walk with our legs!  And upon the highest throne in the world, we are seated, still, on our asses.” -Montaigne, On Experience
