  • The best mannered people make the most absurd lovers.
  • To do his duty somehow, always to speak well of the Prior, and let the world go its own way.
  • You have to make it happen.

Can someone check this?[edit]

I have seen this quote attributed to Diderot in a few places, and have been trying to verify it's authenticity.

Those who fear the facts will forever try to discredit the fact-finders.
