True, That

To succeed in the world it is not enough to be stupid; you must also be well-mannered. -- Voltaire
"Well-mannered." Shit. As just the latest example out of many, mind you.

I think I still like this one more, also from Voltaire:
I have never made but one prayer to God, a very short one: "O Lord, make my enemies ridiculous." And God granted it.
