"I never mutiny so much against France, that I am not perfectly friends with Paris...I love her tenderly, even to her wars and blemishes...But because it is, in truth my own humour, and peradventure not without some excess, I look upon all men as my compatriots, and embrace a Polander as a Frenchmen, preferring the universal and common tie to all national ties whatever."--Michel de Montaigne. From the series Great Ideas of Western Man.
