"his torch enlightened all of mankind"


"Things came to (Voltaire) dull and he made them radiant; things came to him obscure, and he cleansed and scoured them with clarity; things came to him in useless scholastic dress, and he clothed them in such language that the whole world could understand and profit from them. Never did one man teach so many, or with such irresistible artistry."
- Will Durant (posthumously, 2002)
