Michel de Montaigne

Michael: Yustas, I am trying to figure out the context of your post to which I am responding. Google search normally corrects my otherwise imperfect memory, but over 3000 hits on your name did not help this time.

Maitreyee: The character of Narcissus has always intrigued me. Maybe I can
relate with the character!
