1. Life should be great, not long.

2. Religion is for man, not religion for man. I practise a religion that teaches liberty, equality, and fraternity.
3. If we want a united, modern India, we must end the sovereignty of all religious scriptures.

4. In Hinduism, there is no room for the development of conscience, reason, and independent thinking.
5. History demonstrates that when there is a conflict between ethics and economics, economics always wins. Vested interests are not willingly surrendered unless there is sufficient force to compel them to do so.

6. The ultimate goal of human existence should be the development of intelligence. History cannot be made by those who forget it.

7. Equality may be a fiction, but still it has to be accepted as a governing principle.

8. If I feel that the constitution is being misused, I will be the first to burn it.

9. Whatever freedom the law gives you is of no use to you until you achieve social freedom.
