quote

“I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.”

According to WikiPedia, Voltaire didn’t say this.

This line comes from The Friends of Voltaire (1907) by Evelyn Beatrice Hall. It resembles the actual line “Think for yourselves and let others enjoy the privilege to do so too” from Voltaire’s Essay on Tolerance.
