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: “A man is not moral because he is obedient through fear or ignorance. Morality lives in the realm of perceived obligation...”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “As long as men did nothing except to render their fellows wretched; as long as they only butchered and burnt the innocent and helpless, God maintained the strictest and most heartless neutrality. But when some honest man, some great and tender soul expressed a doubt as to the truth of the Scriptures, or prayed to the wrong God, or to the right one by the wrong name, then the real God leaped like a wounded tiger upon his victim, and from his quivering flesh tore his wretched soul.”
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 moment you introduce a despotism in the world of thought, you succeed in making hypocrites – and you get in such a position that you never know what your neighbor thinks.”
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: “It is impossible for me to conceive of a character more utterly detestable than that of the Hebrew god.”
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: “Even in the business of corporations honesty is the best policy, and the companies that have acted in accordance with the highest standard, other things being equal, have reaped the richest harvest.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Liberty sustains the same relation to mind that space does to matter.”
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: “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.” It reminds me of the bargain the cock wished to make with the horse: “Let us agree not to step on each other’s feet.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Nobody ever saw anybody who had seen anybody who had heard of anybody that had ever seen anybody that had ever seen one of the original Hebrew manuscripts.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Logic is the necessary product of intelligence and sincerity. It cannot be learned. It is the child of a clear head and a good heart.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Liberty is the condition of progress. Without Liberty, there remains only barbarism. Without Liberty, there can be no civilization.”
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: “The church hates a thinker precisely for the same reason a robber dislikes a sheriff, or a thief despises the prosecuting witness.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “I do not believe in loving enemies; I have pretty hard work to love my friends.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Sacred are the lips from which has issued only truth.”
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: “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: “Any doctrine that will not bear investigation is not a fit tenant for the mind of an honest man. Any doctrine that will not bear investigation is not a fit tenant for the mind of an honest man. Any man who is afraid to have his doctrine investigated is not only a coward but a hypocrite.”
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: “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: “It is labor that has made the world a fit habitation for the human race.”
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: “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: “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: “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: “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: “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: “Hope is the consolation of the world.”
