Some relevant Ingersoll quotes:

"In the night of death, hope sees a star, andlistening love can hear the rustle of a wing."

"I would rather live and love where death is king than have eternal life wherelove is not."

"Anger is a wind which blows out the lamp of the mind."

"Tolerance is giving to every other human being every right that you claimfor yourself."

"When the will defies fear, when duty throws the gauntlet down to fate,when honor scorns to compromise with death - that is heroism."
