Today, the grand jury is the total captive of the prosecutor who, if candid, will concede that he can indict anybody, at any time, for almost anything, before a grand jury.

It is better that TEN guilty persons escape than one innocent suffer.

The business of the court is to try the case, not the man. And a very bad man may have a righteous case.

The penalty for laughing in a courtroom is six months incarceration. If it were not for this penalty, the jury would never hear the case/evidence.

Courtroom: a place where Jesus Christ [the defendant] and Judas Iscariot [the prosecutor] would be equals, with the betting odds in favor of Judas.

The act is not criminal unless the mind is criminal [Tayler]

The wrathful man does not see the law.

Laws are spider webs, which can stand firm when any light and yielding object falls upon them, while a larger thing [Tayler] breaks through them and escapes.

It is from petty tyrannies that larger ones take root and grow.

Seedlings plated in the soil grow great, and, in growing, break down the foundations of liberty.

The police, prosecution, and media work hand-in-hand to try criminal defendants in the public forum prior to court trial. They ruin a defendant's chance of trial before a fair and impartial jury, and they know that they do this. The state and the media as its henchmen, unilaterally inject copious amounts of accusations, both true and false, into the public. The defendant should not—cannot—effectively defend himself in this legal forum without giving away his legal defense for use later in court. Thus, the state and the media poison the public and prevent the defendant from later defending himself in front of a fair and impartial jury. The state and the media as its henchmen sadistically crucify the unfortunate defendant and psychologically brutalize his family and friends. And they perform an injustice to society itself.

Avoid loud and aggressive people. They are vexations to the spirit.

Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection.

[Do not] be cynical about love: for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment, it is as perennial as the grass.

Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness [Don't I know it!!!]

With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams, [this] is still a beautiful world.

Be cheerful.
