Not My Fill

I speak the truth, not my fill of it, but as much as I dare speak; and I dare to do so a little more as I grow old.

-- Michel de Montaigne (Michel Eyquem, lord of the manor of Montaigne, Dordogne) (1533 - 1592), influential French Renaissance writer, generally considered to be the inventor of the personal essay, Essais (1595) Book III, Ch. 2
