    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

    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.
