Evelyn Beatrice Hall Quote

If to be great means to be good, then Denis Diderot was a little man. But if to be great means to do great things in the teeth of great obstacles, then none can refuse him a place in the temple of the Immortals.


Ch. 2 : Diderot : The Talker, p. 61 - The Friends of Voltaire (1906)
