Cages of Gods

The following from Montaigne’s essay may also make us think about academia and the life in what is called academic world:

It happens as with cages: the birds without despair to get in, and those within despair of getting out.
Book III, Ch. 5. Upon some Verses of Virgil
Arts and sciences are not cast in a mould, but are formed and perfected by degrees, by often handling and polishing, as bears leisurely lick their cubs into form.
Book II, Ch. 12. Apology for Raimond Sebond
Man is certainly stark mad; he cannot make a worm, and yet he will be making gods by dozens.
Book II, Ch. 12. Apology for Raimond Sebond
