Morality is everywhere the same for all men, therefore it comes from God; sects differ, therefore they are the work of men.

[La morale est la même chez tous les hommes, donc elle vient de Dieu; le culte est différent, donc il est l’ouvrage des hommes.] 

Voltaire (1694-1778) French writer [pseud. of Francois-Marie Arouet]
Dictionnaire philosophique portatif, “Atheist,” (1764)
