Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Let us account for all we see by the facts we know. If there are things for which we cannot account, let us wait for light. To account for anything by supernatural agencies is, in fact to say that we do not know. Theology is not what we know about God, but what we do not know about Nature.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “We can be as honest as we are ignorant. If we are, when asked what is beyond the horizon of the known, we must say that we do not know.”

Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Christianity did not come with tidings of great joy, but with a message of eternal grief. It came with the threat of everlasting torture on its lips. It meant war on earth and perdition hereafter.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Hope is the only bee that makes honey without flowers.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Music expresses feeling and thought, without language; it was below and before speech, and it is above and beyond all words.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “To hate man and worship God seems to be the sum of all the creeds.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “In all ages the people have honored those who dishonored them. They have worshiped their destroyers; they have canonized the most gigantic liars, and buried the great thieves in marble and gold. Under the loftiest monuments sleeps the dust of murder.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Every man who expresses an honest thought is a soldier in the army of intellectual liberty.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Civilization has gotten further and further from the so-called ‘natural’ man, who uses all his faculties: perception, invention, improvisation.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Everyone should be taught the nobility of labor, the heroism and splendor of honest effort. As long as it is considered disgraceful to labor, or aristocratic not to labor, the world will be filled with idleness and crime, and with every possible moral deformity.”

Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “The savage prays to a stone that he calls a god, while the Christian prays to a god he calls a spirit, and the prayers of both are equally useful.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “The most important thing in this world is liberty. More important than food or clothes – more important than gold or houses or lands – more important than art or science – more important than all religions, is the liberty of man.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “The history of the world shows that when a mean thing was done, man did it; when a good thing was done, man did it.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “A mule has neither pride of ancestry nor hope of posterity.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “All I have to say is, Love one another – that is the height of all philosophy. It is beyond all religions. It is the secret of joy – the fountain of Perpetual Youth – the only rainbow on life’s dark cloud.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Every creed is a rock in running water: humanity sweeps by it. Every creed cries to the universe, “Halt!” A creed is the ignorant Past bulling the enlightened Present.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Intelligence is the only moral guide.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Let us put theology out of religion. Theology has always sent the worst to heaven, the best to hell.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “This, in my judgment, is the highest philosophy: First, do not regret having lost yesterday; second, do not fear that you will lose tomorrow; third, enjoy today.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Give me the storm and tempest of thought and action, rather than the dead calm of ignorance and faith! Banish me from Eden when you will; but first let me eat of the fruit of the tree of knowledge!”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “The superior man is the providence of the inferior. He is eyes for the blind, strength for the weak, and a shield for the defenseless. He stands erect by bending above the fallen. He rises by lifting others.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Why should we postpone our joy to another world? Let us get all we can of the good between the cradle and the grave, all that we can of the truly dramatic. If, when death comes, that is the end, we have at least made the best of this life.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Superstition is, always has been, and forever will be, the foe of progress, the enemy of education and the assassin of freedom.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “It is hard for many people to give up the religion in which they were born; to admit that their fathers were utterly mistaken, and that the sacred records of their country are but collections of myths and fables.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Christianity has made more lunatics than it ever provided asylums for.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “If a man would follow, today, the teachings of the Old Testament, he would be a criminal. If he would follow strictly the teachings of the New, he would be insane.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Great virtues may draw attention from defects, they cannot sanctify them. A pebble surrounded by diamonds remains a common stone, and a diamond surrounded by pebbles is still a gem.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “There is no harmony between religion and science. When science was a child, religion sought to strangle it in the cradle. Now that science has attained its youth, and superstition is in its dotage, the trembling, palsied wreck says to the athlete: “Let us be friends.””
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “The inspiration of the Bible depends upon the ignorance of the gentleman who reads it.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Nothing could add to the horror of hell, except the presence of its creator, God.”
