I've started tweeting Montaigne quotes - follow them here. I'll add one whenever one comes to mind, and, of course, whenever I can fit it into the 140-character limitation. I'm aware that nothing could be less Montaignean than to think you can express something in a 140-character soundbite and be done with it. A lot of those characters would be needed just for adding his typical codicils to any opinion - things like, "Or perhaps not", "but I don't know", and "I might be wrong".
I'll try to make up for this by selecting tweets that are as inconsequential, contradictory, and generally untidy as possible.
