Voltaire Arouet – Virtue supposes liberty

Share this quote:
Voltaire ArouetVirtue supposes liberty, as the carrying of a burden supposes active force. Under coercion there is no virtue, and without virtue there is no religion. Make a slave of me, and I shall be no better for it. Even the sovereign has no right to use coercion to lead men to religion, which by its nature supposes choice and liberty. My thought is no more subject to authority than is sickness or health.

Voltaire Arouet   (1694-1778)

The remarkable thing we have is a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past . . .We cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude.
