A Quote by Robert Green Ingersoll on blindness, inferiority, providence, strength, superiority, and weakness

The superior man is the providence of the inferior. He is eyes for the blind, strength for the weak, and a shield for the defenseless. He stands erect by bending above the fallen. He rises by lifting others.
