Quote for the Week

An outstanding memory is often associated with weak judgment. … If, thanks to memory, other people’s discoveries and opinions had been kept ever before me, I would readily have reached a settled mind and judgment by following other men’s footsteps, failing as most people do to exercise my own powers.

—Montaigne, Essays, as translated by M. A. Screech, pp. 32-33.
