Short Link to this Quote:

[collapse]

 

This quote from Michel Eyquem de Montaigne suggests that lacking material wealth and resources is a problem that can often be solved or remedied through work, good fortune or assistance from others.

However, having a closed, narrow or underdeveloped mind and intellect is a much deeper and permanent deficiency that is very difficult if not impossible to cure. While poverty can be temporary, true “poverty of the mind” in the form of ignorance, lack of curiosity, or unwillingness to learn and grow is a much more enduring condition from which recovery may not be achievable.
