Debunking The Myth #1

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

This quote is widely misattributed to Voltaire (Francois-Marie Arouet), however, it was originally written by Evelyn Beatrice Hall who wrote under the pseudonym S.G. Tallentyre, and is most famous for writing the biography of Voltaire ( The Life of Voltaire).

Ironically, the quote that is most associated with Voltaire today, is written by someone who merely chronicled his life, and her attribution is lost in translation.
