Sound

Famous quotes containing the word sound:

    [T]here is only one sound argument for democracy, and that is the argument that it is a crime for any man to hold himself out as better than other men, and, above all, a most heinous offense for him to prove it.
    —H.L. (Henry Lewis)

    As far as I’m concerned, “whom” is a word that was invented to make everyone sound like a butler.
    Calvin Trillin (b. 1935)

    I’m no idealist to believe firmly in the integrity of our courts and in the jury system—that is no ideal to me, it is a living, working reality. Gentlemen, a court is no better than each man of you sitting before me on this jury. A court is only as sound as its jury, and a jury is only as sound as the men who make it up.
    Harper Lee (b. 1926)
