Daily Dose

From Memoirs of the Life of Monsieur de Voltaire, by Voltaire, translated by Andrew Brown


"Wonder, if you please, at the contradictions of this world.  Her are people who are almost all openly followers of Servetus, and yet insult me for having demurred at Calvin's having him slowly burned over bundles of fresh green firewood."

From At Les Delices, 6th November 1759
