';I am willing,'; he said, ';to serve in durance vile if it will accomplish the desired purpose.'; But, he went on, ';I know of nothing more futile than a penal sentence that contributes to nothing but the ridiculous.';

Juvenile delinquency is a universal phenomenon. In Russia, even the Russians report banks of youngsters mugging and robbing older citizens. Juvenile delinquency is rampant in Norway, in Finland, in England, in France and in Italy. May I suggest that the reason for that is that the children believe that they are living five minutes to midnight, that there may be no future. In our youth, if you worked hard and you developed your character, you had a future. But if the children today believe that there may be no future, if the future is not what it used to be, then you seize the present.

A Man may plead not guilty, and yet tell no lye; for by the Law no Man is bound to accuse himself, so that when I say, Not guilty, the meaning is, as if I should say by way of Paraphrase, I am Not so guilty as to tell you; if you will being me to Tryal, and have me punished for this you lay to my Charge, prove it against me.
