Some of my most favourite quotes by Voltaire:
“God gave us the gift of life; it is up to us to give ourselves the gift of living well.”
“Judge a man by his questions rather than his answers.”
“Originality is nothing but judicious imitation. The most original writers borrowed one from another.”
“Common sense is not so common.”
Voltaire was a French Enlightenment writer, historian and philosopher famous for his wit and advocacy of freedom of religion and expression. Engraving by Pierre Charles Baquoy.
