    Default A quote from Montaigne

    Could someone translate this quote from Montaige that I found in a Book of Pierre Clastres?

    "On disoit à Socrates que quelqu'un ne s'estoit aucunement amendé en son voyage: Je croy bien, dit-il, il s'estoit emporté avecques soy."

    Thanks in advance

    This is what I make of it :

    Someone said to Socrates that a certain person had not mended his ways during his voyage:
    I believe that, he said, he (this person) took himself along.

    un saludo,
    Frank.
