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.

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 Matt Spinks on inferiority, kindness, people, population, practice, society, and superiority

I am one of the people who threaten them. I am a freak, and according to them anyone who goes against the mold must be eliminated. They practice a kind of reverse eugenics: instead of removing the inferior members of the population, they seek to remove all the superior individuals so that their degraded state becomes the norm, and they no longer feel threatened. Thus, tormenting a freak is looked upon highly in their society
