I am having a lot of fun over here with Clarence Darrow quotes. Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, I give you these:
- Calvin Coolidge was the greatest man who ever came out of Plymouth Corner, Vermont.
- Even if you do learn to speak correct English, whom are you going to speak it to?
- History repeats itself. That’s one of the things wrong with history.
- I am a friend of the working man, and I would rather be his friend, than be one.
- I am an agnostic; I do not pretend to know what many ignorant men are sure of.
- I have never killed a man, but I have read many obituaries with great pleasure.
- Just think of the tragedy of teaching children not to doubt.
Isn’t he a charmer?
Although, honored members, we have an estimable opponent in Ms. Dorothy Parker. Ms. Parker?
- Salary is no object: I want only enough to keep body and soul apart.
- Well, Aimee Semple McPherson has written a book. And were you to call it a little peach, you would not be so much as scratching its surface. It is the story of her life, and it is called In the Service of the King, which title is perhaps a bit dangerously suggestive of a romantic novel. It may be that this autobiography is set down in sincerity, frankness and simple effort. It may be, too, that the Statue of Liberty is situated in Lake Ontario.
- That would be a good thing for them to cut on my tombstone: Wherever she went, including here, it was against her better judgment.
- [On being told of Calvin Coolidge’s death] How do they know?
- You can’t teach an old dogma new tricks.
- You can lead a horticulture, but you can’t make her think.
- Men seldom make passes/ At girls who wear glasses.
