Clarence Darrow

Darrow never joined a Unitarian or Universalist church; however, he was in regular attendance at a Chicago congregation when he was in town and often visited the local Unitarian congregation when he was out of town.  He did join the Ethical Society of Chicago.

"Chase after the truth like all hell and you'll free yourself, even though you never touch its coattails." -- Clarence Darrow

More Quotes

The law is a horrible business.

There is no such thing as justice -- in or out of court.

Inside every lawyer is the wreck of a poet.

To think is to differ.

If you lose your power to laugh, you lose your power to think.

None meet life honestly and few heroically.

Life is a serious burden, which no thinking, humane person would wantonly inflict on someone else.

With all their faults, trade-unions have done more for humanity than any other organization of men that ever existed.

History repeats itself. That's one of the things wrong with history.

I am an agnostic; I do not pretend to know what many ignorant men are sure of.

The first half of our lives is ruined by our parents, and the second half by our children.

Clarence Darrow Misquoted by Creationists
