Trial Verdict

Famous quotes containing the words trial and/or verdict:

    Every political system is an accumulation of habits, customs, prejudices, and principles that have survived a long process of trial and error and of ceaseless response to changing circumstances. If the system works well on the whole, it is a lucky accident—the luckiest, indeed, that can befall a society.
    Edward C. Banfield (b. 1916)

    The verdict on Prince Metternich will soon be out: An excellent diplomat and a bad politician.
    Franz Grillparzer (1791–1872)
