Happy Birthday, Voltaire!

At the Panthéon today, my husband and I saw Voltaire’s tomb. It was a shock – you just turn a corner in the crypt and bam! Vol-freaking-tair! THE Voltaire!

When we came home, my husband happened to be browsing Brain Pickings and saw that today was Voltaire’s 319th birthday. I love synchronicity.
