Voltaire Quotes

Ok, I am copying and pasting these quotes from Massimo Pigliuci’s blog, Rationally Speaking. I can’t tell you exactly where they are coming from. But I do believe this guy, so I am pretty sure he did not make these up. Even if he did, these quotes are too good to let pass without mention.

  • When we hear news we should always wait for the sacrament of confirmation.
  • Think for yourselves and let others enjoy the privilege to do so too.
  • I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.
  • Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities.
  • Doubt is not a pleasant condition, but certainty is absurd.
