 Some wisdom from the great Voltaire:

History is a pack of lies we play on the dead.

I have never made but one prayer to God, a very short one: 'O Lord, make my enemies ridiculous.' And God granted it.

Indolence is sweet, and its consequences bitter.

It is dangerous to be right when the government is wrong.

Love truth, and pardon error.

Marriage is the only adventure open to the cowardly.

Men are equal; it is not birth but virtue that makes the difference.

The art of medicine consists in amusing the patient while nature cures the disease.

The multitude of books is making us ignorant.

Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities.
