of flaps and patches

We are all framed of flaps and patches and of so shapeless and divers a contexture, that every piece and every moment playeth his part. And there is as much difference between us and ourselves, as there is between ourselves and others.

(Montaigne, Essays, translation by John Florio, 1634 edn, p. 187)
