Famous quotes containing the word cases:

    I do not believe in lawyers, in that mode of attacking or defending a man, because you descend to meet the judge on his own ground, and, in cases of the highest importance, it is of no consequence whether a man breaks a human law or not. Let lawyers decide trivial cases.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    In cases of defense ‘tis best to weigh
    The enemy more mighty than he seems.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    There are few cases in which mere popularity should be considered a proper test of merit; but the case of song-writing is, I think, one of the few.
    Edgar Allan Poe (1809–1845)
