Quotable Sunday - #16


Toni at A Daily Dose of Toni hosts Quotable Sunday each week. As one of my New Year's Resolutions I want to improve my blog...for now that is going to include doing some of my favorite memes. :)  Today I am going to do quotes by Voltaire, because I used to love his quotes as a teenager.



"I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it." (This one is my favorite!)

"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."

"The secret of being boring is to say everything."

"A witty saying proves nothing."

"It is dangerous to be right when the government is wrong"

Great quote choices! I really like this one:

"I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it."

But I did get a giggle out of the one about animals having advantages over man - so true!! :)

Happy New Year and enjoy your week! :)
