Text Quotes
Life is made up of a series of judgments on insufficient data, and if we waited to run down all our doubts, it would flow past us.  (Learned Hand Quotes) How long shall we blunder along without the aid of unpartisan and authoritative scientific assistance in the administration of justice, no one knows; but all fair persons not conventionalized by provincial legal habits of mind ought, I should think, unite to effect some change.  (Learned Hand Quotes) We prate of freedom; we are in deadly fear of life, as much of our own American scene betrays  (Learned Hand Quotes) What to an outsider will be no more than the vigorous presentation of a conviction, to an employee may be the manifestation of a determination which it is not safe to thwart.  (Learned Hand Quotes) The mutual confidence on which all else depends can be maintained only by an open mind and a brave reliance upon free discussion.  (Learned Hand Quotes) The art of publicity is a black art; but it has come to stay, and every year adds to its potency  (Learned Hand Quotes) Right knows no boundaries, and justice no frontiers; the brotherhood of man is not a domestic institution.  (Learned Hand Quotes) Our common law is the stock instance of a combination of custom and its successive adaptations  (Learned Hand Quotes) Conservative political opinion in America cleaves to the tradition of the judge as passive interpreter, believing that his absolute loyalty to authoritative law is the price of his immunity from political pressure and of the security of his tenure.  (Learned Hand Quotes) We may win when we lose, if we have done what we can; for by so doing we have made real at least some part of that finished product in whose fabrication we are most concerned: ourselves.  (Learned Hand Quotes) The language of the law must not be foreign to the ears of those who are to obey it  (Learned Hand Quotes) The spirit of liberty is the spirit that is not quite sure it is right  (Learned Hand Quotes) Liberty lies in the hearts of men and women; when it dies there, no constitution, no law, no court can save it.  (Learned Hand Quotes) It lies in the hearts of men and women; when it dies there, no constitution, no law, no court can save it. While it lies there, it needs no constitution, no law, no court to save it.  (Learned Hand Quotes) Life is made up of constant calls to action, and we seldom have time for more than hastily contrived answers.  (Learned Hand Quotes) The art of publicity is a black art  (Learned Hand Quotes) As soon as we cease to pry about at random, we shall come to rely upon accredited bodies of authoritative dogma; and as soon as we come to rely upon accredited bodies of authoritative dogma, not only are the days of our liberty over, but we have lost the password that has hitherto opened to us the gates of success as well  (Learned Hand Quotes) The use of history is to tell us what we are, for at our birth we are nearly empty vessels and we become what our tradition pours into us  (Learned Hand Quotes) There is no fury like that against one who, we fear, may succeed in making us disloyal to beliefs we hold with passion, but have not really won  (Learned Hand Quotes) The spirit of liberty is the spirit which is not too sure that it is right; the spirit of liberty is the spirit which seeks to understands the minds of other men and women  (Learned Hand Quotes) What seems fair enough against a squalid huckster of bad liquor may take on a different face, if used by a government determined to suppress political opposition under the guise of sedition  (Learned Hand Quotes) Convention is like the shell to the chick, a protection till he is strong enough to break it through  (Learned Hand Quotes) Skepticism is my only gospel, but I don’t want to make a dogma out of it  (Learned Hand Quotes) The successful competitor, having been urged to compete, must not be turned on when he wins  (Learned Hand Quotes) No doubt one may quote history to support any cause, as the devil quotes the scripture  (Learned Hand Quotes) The spirit of liberty is the spirit of him who, near two thousand years ago, taught mankind that lesson it has never learned  (Learned Hand Quotes) We shall succeed only so far as we continue that most distasteful of all activity, the intolerable labor of thought  (Learned Hand Quotes) I often wonder whether we do not rest our hopes too much upon constitutions, upon law and upon courts. These are false hopes, believe me, these are false hopes. Liberty lies in the hearts of men and women; when it dies there, no constitution, no law, no court can save it; no constitution, no law, no court can even do much to help it. While it lies there it needs no constitution, no law, no courts to save it  (Learned Hand Quotes) There is no surer way to misread any document than to read it literally... As nearly as we can, we must put ourselves in the place of those who uttered the words, and try to divine how they would have dealt with the unforeseen situation; and, although their words are by far the most decisive evidence of what they would have done, they are by no means final  (Learned Hand Quotes) All discussion, all debate, all dissidence tends to question and in consequence, to upset existing convictions; that is precisely its purpose and its justification  (Learned Hand Quotes)
