'There is no history, only fictions of varying degrees of plausibility'
Apparently written by Voltaire, but I can't find an actual source (text, document, book) that where it explicitly said he wrote it. Can anyone help or know where the quote actually came from
Where does this quote come from Watch

I think it is actually by Gore Vidal from 1876, albeit expressing sentiments previously made by others, including Voltaire.
Here is a link to a reference where the quote is ascribed.
