Wisdom of the Great Mr. Ingersoll

“This is my doctrine: Give every other human being every right you claim for yourself.”
― Robert G. Ingersoll, The Liberty of Man, Woman and Child

robertgingersoll-1“To hate man and worship God seems to be the sum of all the creeds.”
― Robert G. Ingersoll, Some Mistakes of Moses

“The man who does not do his own thinking is a slave, and is a traitor to himself and to his fellowmen.”
― Robert G. Ingersoll, The Liberty of Man, Woman and Child

“There are in nature neither rewards nor punishments — there are consequences.”
― Robert G. Ingersoll, The Christian Religion An Enquiry

“As more people become more intelligent they care less for preachers and more for teachers.”
― Robert G. Ingersoll

“I will not attack your doctrines nor your creeds if they accord liberty to me.
If they hold thought to be dangerous – if they aver that doubt is a crime, then I attack them one and all, because they enslave the minds of men.

I attack the monsters, the phantoms of imagination that have ruled the world. I attack slavery. I ask for room — room for the human mind.”
― Robert G. Ingersoll, The Ghosts and Other Lectures
