Reading was the solace of Montaigne’s life

“It consoles me in my retreat: it relieves me of the weight of distressing idleness and, at any time, can rid me of boring company. To distract me from morose thoughts, I simply need to have resource to books.”

Every restaurant is a theatre..

“Every restaurant is a theatre, and the truly great ones allow us to indulge in the fantasy that we are rich and powerful. Even the modest restaurants offer the opportunity to become someone else, at least for a little while. Restaurants free us from mundane reality; that is part of their charm. When you walk through the door, you are entering neutral territory where you are free to be whoever you choose for the duration of the meal.”
