Famous Clarence Darrow Quotations about the Law

Famous Clarence Darrow Quotations:

True patriotism hates injustice in its own land more than anywhere else.

You can protect your liberties in this world only by protecting the other man's freedom.
You can be free only if I am free.

Lost causes are the only ones worth fighting for.

The only real lawyers are trial lawyers, and trial lawyers try cases to juries.

Common experience shows how much rarer is moral courage than physical bravery. A thousand men will march to the mouth of the cannon where one man will dare espouse an unpopular cause.

Chase after truth like hell and you'll free yourself, even though you never touch its coat-tails.

Laws should be like clothes. They should be made to fit the people they serve.

Clarence Darrow's Quote About "Justice" and "Charity, Understanding, & Mercy"

Clarence Darrow said:

We have heard talk of “justice.” Is there anybody who knows what justice is? No one on earth can measure out justice. Can you look at any man and say what he deserves -- whether he deserves hanging by the neck until dead or life in prison or thirty days in prison or a medal? The human mind is blind to all who seek to look in at it and to most of us that look out from it. Justice is something that man knows little about. He may know something about charity and understanding and mercy, and he should cling to those as far as he can.
