The Top 10 Voltaire Quotes
Judge a man by his questions rather than by his answers.
The more I read, the more I acquire, the more certain I am that I know nothing.
It is dangerous to be right in matters on which the established authorities are wrong.
The secret of being boring is to say everything.
Men will always be mad, and those who think they can cure them are the maddest of all.
I read only to please myself, and enjoy only what suits my taste.
Doubt is not a pleasant position, but certainty is an absurd one.
I do not agree with what you have to say, but I’ll defend to the death your right to say it.
Tears are the silent language of grief.
Common sense is not so common.
~Voltaire (1694-1778)
