Voltaire was awesome

Voltaire has always been one of my favorite authors.  He and I would probably have gotten along well – he was obsessive over coffee and had lofty ideals of Freemasonry (even though he may not have ever gotten his Master Mason degree).  Today when I logged in to do some development work, the fortune program spit out this gem:

What is tolerance? — it is the consequence of humanity.  We are all formed of frailty and error; let us pardon reciprocally each other’s folly — that is the first law of nature.
— Voltaire
