Famous quotes containing the word defend:

    I don’t know how to defend myself: surprised innocence cannot imagine being under suspicion.
    Pierre Corneille (1606–1684)

    The bourgeoisie and the petty bourgeoisie have armed themselves against the rising proletariat with, among other things, “culture.” It’s an old ploy of the bourgeoisie. They keep a standing “art” to defend their collapsing culture.
    George Grosz (1893–1959)

    If the underdog were always right, one might quite easily try to defend him. The trouble is that very often he is but obscurely right, sometimes only partially right, and often quite wrong; but perhaps he is never so altogether wrong and pig-headed and utterly reprehensible as he is represented to be by those who add the possession of prejudices to the other almost insuperable difficulties of understanding him.
    Jane Addams (1860–1935)
