We hate to interrupt your Saturday…

…as you contemplate the collected works of Voltaire, or perhaps you are perusing Proust (in formal French present subjunctive, of course, for all the nuance) this morning, but it would be negligent of MPS if we didn’t direct your attention to our pal Burr Demming’s excellent round-up of posts at the essential-reading blog Fair and Unbalanced.

    Voltaire was featured in the 1933 Technicolor film “Mystery of the Wax Museum” last night on Svengoolie. And I like to quote V for this:Tyrants have always some slight shade of virtue; they support the laws before destroying them.”

    Find a raft of more great Voltaire quotes here: https://www.azquotes.com/author/15138-Voltaire?p=2#

    I frequently use this one by Anatole France: “The law, in its majestic equality, forbids rich and poor alike to sleep under bridges, to beg in the streets, and to steal their bread.”

    Thanks to Tengrain, I’m up early reading French philosophers.
