"I disapprove of what  you say but I will defend to the death your right to say it"

Interestingly enough this quote is usually attributed to Voltaire. It was actually written by Evelyn Beatrice Hall who wrote under the pseudonym S.G. Tallentyre and is best known for her biography of Voltaire titled "The Friends of Voltaire." Hall's quote is often cited to describe the principal of freedom of speech.

I was searching for an image from Paris that I hoped would capture what I was feeling about the assault on this amazing city and her people. This is the one that spoke to me... It is of one half of a grave stone that can be found in the Cimetiere de Montparnasse...

We of Noodle's Crew stand with and send our prayers and condolences to the people of France.

Update *We hope you will take a minute and go to our friends at Living With Loulou at;
