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: “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: “Religion has not civilized man – man has civilized religion. God improves as man advances.”
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: “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: “There is not the slightest danger of women becoming too intellectual or knowing too much. Neither is there any danger of men knowing too much. At least, I know of no men who are in immediate peril from that source.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “If what is known as the Christian Religion is true, nothing can be more wonderful than the fact that Matthew, Mark and Luke say nothing about “salvation by faith;” that they do not even hint at the doctrine of the atonement, and are as silent as empty tombs as to the necessity of believing anything to secure happiness in this world or another.”
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: “In this connection we might ask how God can be moral or good unless he believes in some Being superior to himself?”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Not one of the orthodox ministers dare preach what he thinks if he knows a majority of his congregation think otherwise. He knows that every member of his church stands guard over his brain with a creed, like a club, in his hand. He knows that he is not expected to search after the truth, but that he is employed to defend the creed. Every pulpit is a pillory, in which stands a hired culprit, defending the justice of his own imprisonment.”
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: “One good schoolmaster is worth a thousand priests.”
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: “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 man is dishonest who lives upon the labor of others, no matter if he occupies a throne.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “The closer I’m bound in love to you, the closer I am to free.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Nothing discloses real character like the use of power. It is easy for the weak to be gentle. Most people can bear adversity. But if you wish to know what a man really is, give him power. This is the supreme test.”
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: “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: “Life is a narrow vale between the cold and barren peaks of two eternities. We strive in vain to look beyond the heights. We cry aloud.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Reason, observation, and experience; the holy trinity of science.”
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: “Strange but true: those who have loved God most have loved men least.”
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: “In all ages, hypocrites, called priests, have put crowns upon the heads of thieves, called kings.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “If I had my way I’d make health catching instead of disease.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Secularism is a religion, a religion that is understood. It has no mysteries, no mumblings, no priests, no ceremonies, no falsehoods, no miracles, and no persecutions.”
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: “In the presence of eternity, the mountains are as transient as the clouds.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Heresy is a cradle; orthodoxy a coffin.”
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: “All religions are inconsistent with mental freedom. Shakespeare is my bible, Burns my hymn-book.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “There is no slavery but ignorance.”
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: “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: “A mortgage casts a shadow on the sunniest field.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “The triumph of justice is the only peace.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “We are all children of the same mother, and the same fate awaits us all. We, too, have our religion, and it is this: Help for the living-Hope for the dead.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “I will follow my logic, no matter where it goes, after it has consulted with my heart. If you ever come to a conclusion without calling the heart in, you will come to a bad conclusion.”
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: “This crime called blasphemy was invented by priests for the purpose of defending doctrines not able to take care of themselves.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “A false friend, an unjust judge, a braggart, hypocrite, and tyrant, sincere in hatred, jealous, vain and revengeful, false in promise, honest in curse, suspicious, ignorant, infamous and hideous-such is the God of the Pentateuch.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Like an armed warrior, like a plumed knight, James G. Blaine marched down the halls of the American Congress and threw his shining lance full and fair against the brazen foreheads of the defamers of his country, and the maligners of his honor.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “There are treasures in books that all the money in the world cannot buy, but the poorest laborer can have for nothing.”

Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “With their backs to the sunrise they worship the night.”
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: “A fact never went into partnership with a miracle. Truth scorns the assistance of wonders. A fact will fit every other fact in the universe, and that is how you can tell whether it is or is not a fact. A lie will not fit anything except another lie.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “I am going to put the Bible out of business.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “The true civilization is where every man gives to every other every right that he claims for himself.”
