montaigne says this is the greatest thing in the world

Montaigne:

I did not flee from men, but from affairs. We have lived long enough for others: let us live the rest for ourselves; let us disentangle ourselves from the clutch of things which hold us elsewhere and keep us from ourselves. The greatest thing in the world is to know how to belong to yourself.
