Voltaire's Will Contest Quote

Voltaire "Animals have these advantages over man: they never hear the clock strike, they die without any idea of death, they have no theologians to instruct them, their last moments are not disturbed by unwelcome and unpleasant ceremonies, their funerals cost them nothing, and no one starts lawsuits over their wills."

--Voltaire, French author (1694 - 1778).

Special thanks to Carlo Taboada (2012 J.D. candidate, Texas Tech School of Law) for bringing this to my attention.
