A Quote by Robert Green Ingersoll on accidents, colors, heart, inferiority, men, and superiority

I am the inferior of any man whose rights I trample under foot. Men are not superior by the accidents of race or color. They are superior who have the best heart - the best brain.

A Quote by Robert Green Ingersoll on art, change, darkness, dreams, earth, heart, heaven, home, immortality, joy, life, love, motherhood, music, passion, patriotism, philosophy, poets, quiet, sacred, and world

Love is the only bow on life's dark cloud. It is the Morning and the Evening Star. It shines upon the cradle of the babe, and sheds its radiance upon the quiet tomb. It is the Mother of Art, inspirer of poet, patriot, and philosopher. It is the air and light of every heart, builder of every home, kindler of every fire on every hearth. It was the first dream of immortality. It fills the world with melody, for music is the voice of Love. Love is the magician, the enchanter, that changes worthless things to joy, and makes right royal kings of common clay. It is the perfume of the wondrous flower-the heart-and without that sacred passion, . . . we are less than beasts; but with it, earth and heaven are gods.
