“Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities”
A friend sent me this quote this week from Voltaire who lived from 1694 -1778 in France, England and Prussia. An Enlightenment Era Writer and Philosopher, who wrote a total of more than 2000 pamphlets, books essays, plays and poetry. Famous for his wit, and his criticism, he was an “advocate of freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and separation of church and state.” I hadn’t thought about Voltaire since my college days. At the time, I admired his writing and reputation. He knew Issac Newton and brought Newton’s Physics to France and to Europe from England.
Thanks for stopping by my kitchen.
Have a great rest of the week wherever you may be.
What an absolutely apt quotation.
Yeah…Voltaire really had the turn of phrase.🧐
