Represented

Famous quotes containing the word represented:

    Judge Bedford: I understand you refuse to be represented by counsel.
    Walter: That’s correct, your honor.
    Judge Bedford: Are you suicidal, Mr. Davis, or just plain stupid?
    Dale Launer (b. 1953)

    By an application of the theory of relativity to the taste of readers, to-day in Germany I am called a German man of science, and in England I am represented as a Swiss Jew. If I come to be regarded as a bĂȘte noire the descriptions will be reversed, and I shall become a Swiss Jew for the Germans and a German man of science for the English!
    Albert Einstein (1879–1955)

    If the underdog were always right, one might quite easily try to defend him. The trouble is that very often he is but obscurely right, sometimes only partially right, and often quite wrong; but perhaps he is never so altogether wrong and pig-headed and utterly reprehensible as he is represented to be by those who add the possession of prejudices to the other almost insuperable difficulties of understanding him.
    Jane Addams (1860–1935)
