Maintained

Famous quotes containing the word maintained:

    He maintained that the case was lost or won by the time the final juror had been sworn in; his summation was set in his mind before the first witness was called. It was all in the orchestration, he claimed: in knowing how and where to pitch each and every particular argument; who to intimidate; who to trust, who to flatter and court; who to challenge; when to underplay and exactly when to let out all the stops.
    Dorothy Uhnak (b. 1933)

    Violence can only be concealed by a lie, and the lie can only be maintained by violence. Any man who has once proclaimed violence as his method is inevitably forced to take the lie as his principle.
    Alexander Solzhenitsyn (b. 1918)

    The State is the altar of political freedom and, like the religious altar, it is maintained for the purpose of human sacrifice.
    Emma Goldman (1869–1940)
