Insolence is not logic; epithets are the arguments of malice.More Robert Ingersoll quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
They say that when god was in Jerusalem he forgave his murderers, but now he will not forgive an honest man for differing with him on the subject of the Trinity. They say that God says to me, "Forgive your enemies." I say, "I do;" but he says, "I will damn mine." God should be consistent. If he wants me to forgive my enemies he should forgive his. I am asked to forgive enemies who can hurt me. God is only asked to forgive enemies who cannot hurt him. He certainly ought to be as generous as he asks us to be.More Robert Ingersoll quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

Memory is the miser of the mind; forgetfulness the spendthrift.More Robert Ingersoll quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
