Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Memory is the miser of the mind; forgetfulness the spendthrift.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “One man in the right will finally get to be a majority.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Age after age, the strong have trampled upon the weak; the crafty and heartless have ensnared and enslaved the simple and innocent, and nowhere, in all the annals of mankind, has any god succored the oppressed.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Religion can never reform mankind because religion is slavery.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Insolence is not logic; epithets are the arguments of malice.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Spirituality for the most part is a mask worn by idleness, arrogance and greed.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Christianity has such a contemptible opinion of human nature that it does not believe a man can tell the truth unless frightened by a belief in god. No lower opinion of the human race has ever been expressed.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Give any orthodox church the power, and to-day they would punish heresy with whip, and chain, and fire. As long as a church deems a certain belief essential to salvation, just so long it will kill and burn if it has the power.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “And why does this same God tell me how to raise my children when he had to drown his?”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “The Declaration of Independence was a denial, and the first denial of a nation, of the infamous dogma that God confers the right upon one man to govern others.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “As far as I am concerned I wish to be out on the high seas. I wish to take my chances with wind, and wave, and star. And I had rather go down in the glory and grandeur of the storm, than rot in any orthodox harbor.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “All the professors in all the religious colleges in this country rolled into one, would not equal Charles Darwin.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Whoever increases the sum of human joy, is a worshiper. He who adds to the sum of human misery, is a blasphemer.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Few nations have been so poor as to have but one god. Gods were made so easily, and the raw material cost so little, that generally the god market was fairly glutted and heaven crammed with these phantoms.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “As long as woman regards the Bible as the charter of her rights, she will be the slave of man. The bible was not written by a woman. Within its leaves there is nothing but humiliation and shame for her.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Who can over estimate the progress of the world if all the money wasted in superstition could be used to enlighten, elevate and civilize mankind?”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Do not trust those in whom the compulsion to punish is strong.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “My objection to Christianity is that it is infinitely cruel, infinitely selfish, and, I might add, infinitely absurd.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “The greatest superstition now entertained by public men is that hypocrisy is the royal road to success.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “If abuses are destroyed, man must destroy them. If slaves are freed, man must free them. If new truths are discovered, man must discover them. If the naked are clothed; if the hungry are fed; if justice is done; if labor is rewarded; if superstition is driven from the mind; if the defenseless are protected and if the right finally triumphs, all must be the work of man. The grand victories of the future must be won by man, and by man alone.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Science has nothing in common with religion. Facts and miracles never did, and never will agree. They are not in the least related. They are deadly foes. What has religion to do with facts? Nothing. Can there be Methodist mathematics, Catholic astronomy, Presbyterian geology, Baptist biology, or Episcopal botany?”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “The people were taught that the record was inspired, and therefore true. They were not taught that it was true, and therefore inspired.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Nothing is so pleasing to these Gods as the butchery of unbelievers. Nothing so enrages them, even now, as to have some one deny their existence.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Superstition is the child of ignorance and fear.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “It has always seemed absurd to suppose that a god would choose for his companions, during all eternity, the dear souls whose highest and only ambition is to obey.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “That church teaches that infinite innocence was sacrificed for me! I do not want it! I do not wish to go to heaven unless I can settle by the books, and go there because I ought to go there. I have said, and I say again, I do not wish to be a charity angel. I have no ambition to become a winged pauper of the skies.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “After all, the real question is not whether the Bible is inspired, but whether it is true. If it is true, it does not need to be inspired. If it is true, it makes no difference whether it was written by a man or a god.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Any church that imprisons a man because he has used an argument against its creed, will simply convince the world that it cannot answer the argument.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Every man is dishonest who lives upon the labor of others, no matter if he occupies a throne.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “When the will defies fear, when duty throws the gauntlet down to fate, when honor scorns to compromise with death – that is heroism.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Every cradle asks us, Whence? and every coffin, Whither? The poor barbarian, weeping above his dead, can answer these questions as intelligently as the robed priest of the most authentic creed.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “One good schoolmaster is worth a thousand priests.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “If the people were a little more ignorant, astrology would flourish – if a little more enlightened, religion would perish.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “The man who does not do his own thinking is a slave, and is a traitor to himself and to his fellow-men.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “If I had my way I’d make health catching instead of disease.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Hope is the only universal liar who never loses his reputation for veracity.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Justice should remove the bandage from her eyes long enough to distinguish between the vicious and the unfortunate.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “The book, called the Bible, is filled with passages equally horrible, unjust and atrocious. This is the book to be read in schools in order to make our children loving, kind and gentle! This is the book they wish to be recognized in our Constitution as the source of all authority and justice!”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Every pulpit is a pillory, in which stands a hired culprit, defending the justice of his own imprisonment.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Justice, poised and balanced in eternal calm, will shake from the golden scales in which are weighed the acts of men, the very dust of prejudice and caste: No race, no color, no previous condition, can change the rights of men.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “There is no slavery but ignorance.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “All religions are inconsistent with mental freedom. Shakespeare is my bible, Burns my hymn-book.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “A mortgage casts a shadow on the sunniest field.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “In all ages, hypocrites, called priests, have put crowns upon the heads of thieves, called kings.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “It is a blessed thing that in every age some one has had the individuality enough and courage enough to stand by his own convictions.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “The Christians say, that among the ancient Jews, if you committed a crime you had to kill a sheep. Now they say ‘charge it.’ ‘Put it on the slate.’ The Savior will pay it. In this way, rascality is sold on credit, and the credit system in morals, as in business, breeds extravagance.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “They knew that it was necessary to believe these things and to love God. They knew that there could be no salvation except by faith, and through the atoning blood of Jesus Christ.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Strange but true: those who have loved God most have loved men least.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Nothing is greater than to break the chains from the bodies of men – nothing nobler than to destroy the phantom of the soul.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “If the property belongs to God he is able to pay the tax.”
