While stumbling around the internet this morning I found a quote attributed to Robert Ingersoll that I thought I’d share:
“If abuses are destroyed, man must destroy them. If slaves are freed, man must free them. If new truths are discovered, man must discover them. If the naked are clothed; if the hungry are fed; if justice is done; if labor is rewarded; if superstition is driven from the mind; if the defenseless are protected and if the right finally triumphs, all must be the work of man. The grand victories of the future must be won by man, and by man alone.”
No matter what the various special friends of invisible men may say, it will always be up to us – humanity – to do right by one another.
