Ode to Posterity

Jean Jacques Rousseau once sent Voltaire a copy of his "Ode to Posterity," seeking his opinion. "I do not think," Voltaire drily declared, "that this poem will reach its destination."

[Born Francois-Marie Arouet, 'Voltaire' constructed his name (an anagram, with Latin alterations) from 'Arovet L. I.' (le jeune).]
