Four quotes by Voltaire

François-Marie Arouet (21 November 1694 – 30 May 1778), better known by the pen name Voltaire, was a French Enlightenment writer and philosopher famous for his wit and for his advocacy of civil liberties, including freedom of religion and free trade. Voltaire was a prolific writer and produced works in almost every literary form including plays, poetry, novels, essays, historical and scientific works, more than 20,000 letters and more than 2,000 books and pamphlets. He was an outspoken supporter of social reform, despite strict censorship laws and harsh penalties for those who broke them. As a satirical polemicist, he frequently made use of his works to criticize Catholic Church dogma and the French institutions of his day.
 God is a comic playing to an audience that's afraid to laugh. 
 It is one of the superstitions of the human mind to have imagined that virginity could be a virtue. 
 Men will always be mad, and those who think they can cure them are the maddest of all. 
 The superfluous is very necessary.
