: “On Friendship” by Michel de Montaigne
“Because I travel a lot, I have audioŽbooks as my companions.
“Montaigne was one the most influenŽtial writers of the French
Renaissance. Essentially, this book is about what the meaning of
friendship truly is, and how you can celebrate friendship. I like the
book because I like Montainge and his philosophy. It’s inspired me to
rethink my own personal friends.
“In many cultures today, if you ask people what they
do in their spare time, the answer would be ‘shopping’. That’s the sad
thing. Two decades ago you would have seen people playing a clarinet or
harp as their hobby. I believe educated people should have a nice
pastime, and reading is my hobby.”
