Robert Ingersoll | Unclerave's Wordy Weblog

The true civilization is where every man gives to every other every right that he claims for himself.”   —   Robert Ingersoll

(Ah!  So, Bob is essentially saying that civilization is a mythical place.  Because there are plenty of folks, in probably every “civilization”, who are more than willing to deny some folks the rights that they claim for themselves.  Son of an abolitionist, Bob became a lawyer, writer and famous orator of the latter 19th Century.  I like that he was a practitioner of free thought, and was a fan of Thomas Paine.  More Americans – and people everywhere – should strive to be more like Robert Ingersoll.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

If I had my way, I’d make health catching instead of disease.”   —   R. G. Ingersoll

(Good guy.  The only problem being that health takes some doing.  Eating properly, exercising regularly, and getting enough sleep.  Catching a disease is much easier for people who don’t work at getting/staying healthy.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(So true!  Our idea of permanence is clouded by our limited perception of time.  I love the Tibetan sand mandalas!  As soon as they are completed – and that can take quite some time – they are ceremoniously destroyed.  Be well, do good . . . and remember that life is fleeting, friends.)   —   YUR
