This quote is commonly misattributed to Voltaire.

It came from a line from a book about Voltaire called "The friends of Voltaire" published in 1906, this line was in regards to Voltaire's stance on Claude Adrien Helvetius.

It was the French philosopher Voltaire who said, "I do not agree with what you say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it." Obviously, he believed in "freedom of speech!"

Patrick Henry said that, just before his famous statement, "Give me liberty or give me death." It was soon after that the United States fought Britain for its independence and won.

It means," No one has the right to silence another , nor allow another to be silenced because their opinions differ. It is every ones constitutional right to be able to voice their opinion regardless of how unpopular that opinion may be. It's called "FREEDOM OF SPEECH". If anyone disagrees with this answer, I accept that. I only hope they don't get together with others and start burning books again.

Most people credit Voltaire for the quote 'I don't agree with you but I will fight for your right to say it'. This, however, can not be found in his work.

Voltaire is credited with saying, "I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it." In reality, Evelyn Beatrice Hall, a biographer of Voltaire, wrote it to illustrate Voltaire's beliefs about free speech.

It means they feel the same way as what you have just said. They agree with you or are saying the same thing to you that you said to them. It has nothing to do with the back of your body!

Patrick Henry was an important historical figure that said, "Give me liberty, or give me death!" He also said,"A government of your own is your natural right." Hope this helps!

A variation of this quote is widely attributed to Voltaire, but was probably written by a person named Evelyn Beatrice Hall.

That doesn't sound right. Why would you sign a death certificate unless you are a doctor? You may have signed something that said you agree to be the executor of your brother's estate. In that case, you may be responsible for liquidating your brother's assets to pay his outstanding debts. But that would not require you to settle his debts from your own funds. You need some clarification from the lawyer, perhaps even a second opinion from another lawyer. Unless you were business partners, it does not make sense that you would agree to pay your dead brother's debts.

It depends on what he said. I can't tell you if I agree or not since I don't know the quote.

No, black people are a different type of very creative culture. They are probably thinking, should whites die, and they are the right ones. They weren't unfair to us, we were VERY unfair to them. So no, if anything, whites should die. i agree wit wat she said.

He used to be a Death Eater, but soon quit.So no if you think that is the right term. I am going with what Sirius said "Once a Death Eater always a Death Eater" So the true answer is yes.

Thomas Jefferson and Alexander Hamilton disagreed on many things. One said left, the other said right. One said black, the other white. However, they both believed the future of the American economy depended on the people.

"She will never agree to that" is a complete sentence, and does not contain a possessive pronoun. If the sentence said, "Her cousin will never agree to that," then the word 'her' would be a possessive pronoun.
