Opinions have caused more ills than the plague or earthquakes on this little globe of ours.

[Les opinions ont plus causé de maux sur ce petit globe que la peste et les tremblements de terre.] 

Voltaire (1694-1778) French writer [pseud. of Francois-Marie Arouet]
Letter to Élie Bertrand (5 Jan 1759)
