Famous quotes containing the word trial:

    A trial cannot be conducted by announcing the general culpability of a civilization. Only the actual deeds which, at least, stank in the nostrils of the entire world were brought to judgment.
    Albert Camus (1913–1960)

    I have proved by actual trial that a letter, that takes an hour to write, takes only about 3 minutes to read!
    Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898)

    Going to trial with a lawyer who considers your whole life-style a Crime in Progress is not a happy prospect.
    Hunter S. Thompson (b. 1939)
