Clarence Darrow
1857 - 1938

Lawyer, advisor to Franklin D. Roosevelt, renowned especially for his defense of John Scopes in Tennesee vs John Scopes (the "Monkey Trial") and for his questioning of prosecution witness William Jennings Bryan.

When I was a boy I was told that anyone could become President; I'm beginning to believe it.

Ignorance and fanaticism is ever busy and needs feeding.

Jul. 10, 1925 - from Tennessee vs John Scopes, the "Monkey Trial"
You can only protect your liberties in this world by protecting the other man's freedom. You can only be free if I am free.

Chase after the truth like all hell and you'll free yourself, even though you never touch its coattails.
