Don Cheadle said this on Ebert & Roeper last week:

"Give every man a pen and we can change the world." He suggested it was said by Baudelaire.

It sounds good, but perhaps more like Voltaire. The phrasing is awkward and if there's a real quote here it's probably worded differently (quite aside from translation issues).

Sound familiar?
