Clarence Darrow Quotes

Clarence Darrow

Clarence Darrow is widely considered the greatest criminal defense lawyer of his time…maybe of all time. He is a wildly tenacious criminal attorney who used his intelligence and creative cross-examination to destroy prosecution witnesses. Mr. Darrow could be a fire-breathing dragon at one moment and a silver-tongued devil at the next. His most famous cases were the “Scopes Monkey Trial,” “Ossian Sweet” (a Detroit murder trial), the “Massie Trial,” and the “Leopold and Loeb” case.

 Clarence Darrow – Quotes from the Greatest Criminal Defense Lawyer:

“As long as the world shall last, there will be wrongs, and if no man objected and no man rebelled, those wrongs would last forever.”

“Chase after the truth like all hell and you’ll free yourself, even though you never touch its coat tails.”

“I have never killed a man, but I have read many obituaries with great pleasure.”

“I have suffered from being misunderstood, but I would have suffered a hell of a lot more if I had been understood.”

“If you lose the power to laugh, you lose the power to think.”

“Just think of the tragedy of teaching children not to doubt.”

“Justice has nothing to do with what goes on in a courtroom; Justice is what comes out of a courtroom.”
