Here Lies Voltaire

These are the three words written on Voltaire’s gravestone and they’re the only three words necessary because he was the only person in the world like him. Voltaire passed away in 1778 and in over 200 hundred years since there hasn’t been another person like him.

Why does anyone remember Voltaire? All he did was put pen to paper. But what if he didn’t? What if he was afraid of showing his work to other people? What if he didn’t ship? 

Our world wouldn’t have been the same and his gravestone could have never stated just those three words. Does this seem ridiculous? It’s not much different scenario that many people do themselves everyday. They afraid to simply say who they feel at work or in their own writing. Sadly, no one will even get an opportunity to know them. Because there is nothing to see.

Give us something to see.
