Only two quotes by Michel de Montaigne

Michel Eyquem, Sieur de Montaigne (28 February 1533 – 13 September 1592), also known as the Lord of Montaigne, was one of the most significant philosophers of the French Renaissance. He is known for popularizing the essay as a literary genre. His work is noted for its merging of casual anecdotes and autobiography with intellectual insight. Montaigne had a direct influence on numerous Western writers; his massive volume Essais contains some of the most influential essays ever written.
 How many things served us yesterday for articles of faith, which today are fables for us? 
Combien de choses nous servoyent hier d’articles de foy, qui nous sont fables aujourd’huy?
 Man is certainly mad; he could not make a mite, and yet makes gods by the dozen. 
L'homme est bien insensé. Il ne saurait forger un ciron, et forge des Dieux à douzaines.
