Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “They knew no better, but I do not propose to follow the example of a barbarian because he was honestly a barbarian.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “It is with men as with other things. The mullein needs only a year, but the oak a century, and the greatest men are those who have continued to grow as long as they have lived.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “No one infers a god from the simple, from the known, from what is understood, but from the complex, from the unknown, and incomprehensible. Our ignorance is God; what we know is science.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “I believe in the religion of reason – the gospel of this world; in the development of the mind, in the accumulation of intellectual wealth, to the end that man may free himself from superstitious fear, to the end that he may take advantage of the forces of nature to feed and clothe the world.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “I do not believe in loving enemies; I have pretty hard work to love my friends. Neither do I believe in revenge. No man can afford to keep the viper of revenge in his heart. But I believe in justice, in self-defense.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “I do not believe in loving enemies; I have pretty hard work to love my friends.”

Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “If you say to a man: “Eighteen hundred years ago the dead were raised,” he will reply: “Yes, I know that.” And if you say: “A hundred thousand years from now all the dead will be raised,” he will probably reply: “I presume so.” But if you tell him: “I saw a dead man raised to-day,” he will ask, “From what madhouse have you escaped?”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “The idea that an infinite God, creator of all worlds, came to this grain of sand, learned the trade of a carpenter, discussed with Pharisees and scribes, and allowed a few infuriated Hebrews to put him to death that he might atone for the sins of men and redeem a few believers from the consequences of his own wrath, can find no lodgment in a good and natural brain.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Sacred are the lips from which has issued only truth.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Take from the church the miraculous, the supernatural, the incomprehensible, the unreasonable, the impossible, the unknowable, the absurd, and nothing but a vacuum remains.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “There is more real devotional feeling summoned from the temple of the mind by great music than by any sermon ever delivered.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Christ never wrote a solitary word of the New Testament – not one word. There is an account that he once stooped and wrote something in the sand, but that has not been preserved. He never told anybody to write a word.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “If the reason I give is a good one, you will act upon it. If it is a bad one I cannot make it better by piling epithet upon epithet. There is no logic in abuse; there is no argument in an epithet.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Liberty sustains the same relation to mind that space does to matter.”

Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “You have no idea how many men are spoiled by what is called education. For the most part, colleges are places where pebbles are polished and diamonds are dimmed. If Shakespeare had graduated at Oxford, he might have been a quibbling attorney, or a hypocritical parson.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “It is labor that has made the world a fit habitation for the human race.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “No man can control his belief. You hear evidence for and against, and the integrity of the soul stands at the scales and tells which side rises and which side falls. You can not believe as you wish. You must believe as you must.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “No one, in the world’s whole history, ever attempted to substantiate a truth by a miracle. Truth scorns the assistance of miracle. Nothing but falsehood ever attested itself by signs and wonders. No miracle ever was performed, and no sane man ever thought he had performed one, and until one is performed, there can be no evidence of the existence of any power superior to, and independent of nature.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “To know that the Bible is the literature of a barbarous people, to know that it is uninspired, to be certain that the supernatural does not and cannot exist – all this is but the beginning of wisdom.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Every man should stand under the blue and stars, under the infinite flag of nature, the peer of every other man.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Huddled in folds they listened with wide eyes while the shepherds told of ravening wolves. With great gladness they exchanged their fleeces for security. Shorn and shivering, they had the happiness of seeing their protectors comfortable and warm. Through all the years, those who plowed divided with those who prayed. Wicked industry supported pious idleness, the hut gave to the cathedral, and frightened poverty gave even its rags to buy a robe for hypocrisy.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Life is not the same to all – to some a blessing, to some a curse, to some not much in any way.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Happiness is the only good. The place to be happy is here. The time to be happy is now. The way to be happy is to help make others so.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “The oppressors, the tyrants, those who trample on the rights of others, the robbers of the poor, those who put wages below the living point, the ministers who make people insane by preaching the dogma of eternal pain; these are the men who drive the weak, the suffering and the helpless down to death.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “How fortunate it is for us all that it is somewhat unnatural for a human being to obey. Universal obedience is universal stagnation; disobedience is one of the conditions of progress.”
