For this bust of Voltaire I'm just going to list some Famous quotes from him, because I love him so much.
“Judge a man by his questions rather than by his answers.”
“Common sense is not so common.”
“It is dangerous to be right in matters on which the established authorities are wrong.”
“The most important decision you make is to be in a good mood.”
“Doubt is an uncomfortable condition, but certainty is a ridiculous one.”
“Every man is a creature of the age in which he lives and few are able to raise themselves above the ideas of the time.”
“Sensual pleasure passes and vanishes, but the friendship between us, the mutual confidence, the delight of the heart, the enchantment of the soul, these things do not perish and can never be destroyed.”
“Don't think money does everything or you are going to end up doing everything for money.”
“Animals have these advantages over man: they never hear the clock strike, they die without any idea of death, they have no theologians to instruct them, their last moments are not disturbed by unwelcome and unpleasant ceremonies, their funerals cost them nothing, and no one starts lawsuits over their wills.”
“He must be very ignorant for he answers every question he is asked.”
“Behind every successful man stands a surprised mother-in-law.”
There are so many more of these. I could go on forever. You will find many more here at the link below.
