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

我不同意你說的話,但我誓死捍衛你說話的權利。

按:此句格言應是以寫伏爾泰傳記而聞名的一位英國作家伊芙琳.碧翠絲.霍爾(Evelyn Beatrice Hall,筆名Stephen G. Tallentyre,1868-1919)在其書中的雋永名言。

 1906 年伊芙琳.碧翠絲.霍爾以筆名 S.G. Tallentyre 出版了《The Friends of Voltaire:伏爾泰的朋友們》一書。她在該書中第 199 頁第一行開場白:

 「I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it. 」作為她闡述伏爾泰對於思想和言論自由信仰的一個總結。

 這句雋永的總結名言,常被誤為是伏爾泰本人所說的。美國好幾位卸任總統在位時,特別愛引用伏爾泰〈實際是伊芙琳〉這句名言。

Human felicity is produced not so much by great pieces of good fortune that seldom happen, as by little advantages that occur every day.

與其說人類的幸福來自偶爾發生的鴻運,不如說來自每天都有的小實惠。

〈簡單比方:您中了樂透或獲得財富,它會讓您興奮滿甚至血脈賁張,那是 Lucky 或 fortune;而親人或朋友每天的問暖或鼓勵打氣,才是 felicity、Happiness 或 welfare。〉

附註:
小提琴是弦樂器之一種。其他還有中提琴、大提琴及低音大提琴等。

以下引錄《弦樂器起源的傳說》參考:〈作者  csc0915〉

墨丘利(Mercury)是希臘神話中諸神的使神。
有一天他在尼羅河畔散步,無意中踩到一個東西,那東西發出了美妙的聲音。
他拾起來一看,原來是一個空龜殼內側附有一條乾枯的筋。

於是墨丘利從中得到啟發,發明了弦樂器。
後人考證弦樂器出現在墨丘利之前,但弦樂的發明。有可能正是從此得到了啟發。
