Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “The ministers, who preached at these revivals, were in earnest. They were zealous and sincere. They were not philosophers. To them science was the name of a vague dread – a dangerous enemy. They did not know much, but they believed a great deal.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “My principal objections to orthodox religion are two: slavery here and hell hereafter.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “The only reason why we wish to exchange thoughts is that we are different. If we were all the same, we would die dumb. No thought would be expressed after we found that our thoughts were precisely alike. We differ-our thoughts are different. Therefore the commerse that we call conversation.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Is there an intelligent man or woman now in the world who believes in the Garden of Eden story? If you find any man who believes it, strike his forehead and you will hear an echo. Something is for rent.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “No God can put a man in hell in another world, who has made a little heaven in this. God cannot make a man miserable if that man has made somebody else happy.”

Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “To me, the most obscene word in our language is celibacy.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “I want no heaven for which I must give my reason; no happiness in exchange for my liberty, and no immortality that demands the surrender of my individuality. Better rot in the windowless tomb, to which there is no door but the red mouth of the pallid worm, than to wear the jeweled collar of a god.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “It is incredible that only idiots are absolutely sure of salvation. It is incredible that the more brain you have the less your chance is. There can be no danger in honest thought, and if the world ever advances beyond what it is to-day, it must be led by men who express their real opinions.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Take the word Liberty from human speech and all the other words become poor, withered, meaningless sounds – but with that word realized – with that word understood, the world becomes a paradise.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “An infinite personality is an infinite impossibility.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Catholicism is contrary to human liberty. Catholicism bases salvation upon belief. Catholicism teaches man to trample his reason under foot. And for that reason it is wrong.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “They say: Belief is important. I say: No, actions are important. Judge by deed, not by creed.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “The idea that there is a God who rewards and punishes, and who can reward, if he so wishes, the meanest and vilest of the human race, so that he will be eternally happy, and can punish the best of the human race, so that he will be eternally miserable, is subversive of all morality.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “As long as every question is answered by the word “God,” scientific inquiry is simply impossible.”

Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “The man who invented the telescope found out more about heaven than the closed eyes of prayer ever discovered.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “God cannot send to eternal pain a man who has done something toward improving the condition of his fellow-man. If he can, I had rather go to hell than to heaven and keep company with such a god.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Liberty cannot be sacrificed for the sake of temperance, for the sake of morality, or for the sake of anything. It is of more value than everything. Yet some people would destroy the sun to prevent the growth of weeds. Liberty sustains the same relation to all the virtues that the sun does to life.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “For thousands of years people have been trying to force other people to think their way. Did they succeed? No. Will they succeed? No. Why? Because brute force is not an argument.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “The Old Testament filled this world with tyranny and injustice, and the New gives us a future filled with pain for nearly all of the sons of men. The Old Testament describes the hell of the past, and the New the hell of the future.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “The credulity of the church is decreasing, and the most marvelous miracles are not either ‘explained,’ or allowed to take refuge behind the mistakes of the translators, or hide in the drapery of allegory.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Shakespeare has done far more for the world than the Bible.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “If nobody has too much, everybody will have enough.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “The object of all education should be to increase the usefulness of man – usefulness to himself and others.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “An infinite God ought to be able to protect himself, without going in partnership with State Legislatures. Certainly he ought not so to act that laws become necessary to keep him from being laughed at. No one thinks of protecting Shakespeare from ridicule, by the threat of fine and imprisonment.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “The careful reader of the New Testament will find three Christs described: – One who wished to preserve Judaism – one who wished to reform it, and one who built a system of his own.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “I belong to the Great Church which holds the world within its starlit aisles; that claims the great and good of every race and clime; that finds with joy the grain of gold in every creed, and floods with light and love the germs of good in every soul.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “When struck on one cheek to turn the other, is really joining a conspiracy to secure the triumph of brutality. To agree not to resist evil is to become an accomplice of all injustice.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “When passions and appetites are stronger than the intellect, men are savages; when the intellect governs the passions, when the passions are servants, men are civilized. The people need education – facts – philosophy.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “He who treats his friends and enemies alike, has neither love nor justice.”

Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “He raised his hands, not to strike, but in benediction. Lincoln was the grandest figure of the fiercest civil war. He is the gentlest memory of our world.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “I do not see how it is possible for an intelligent human being to conclude that the Song of Solomon is the work of God, and that the tragedy of Lear was the work of an uninspired man.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “If, with all the time at my disposal, with all the wealth of the resources of this vast universe, to do with as I will, I could not produce a better scheme of life than now prevails, I would be ashamed of my efforts and consider my work a humiliating failure.”
