Famous quotes containing the words judiciary and/or act:

    The judiciary has fallen to a very low state in this country. I think your part of the country has suffered especially. The federal judges of the South are a disgrace to any country, and I’ll be damned if I put any man on the bench of whose character and ability there is the least doubt.
    William Howard Taft (1857–1930)

    I have no acting technique.... I act instinctively. That’s why I can’t play any role that isn’t based on something in my life.
    Ethel Waters (1900–1977)
