What I did present as exactly as I could was the clime and tone, as I remembered them, of the town in which I lived. From childhood on, I did sit in the courtroom watching my father argue cases and talk to juries.
3Before I can live with other folks, I've got to live with myself.The one thing that doesn't abide by majority rule is a person's conscience.
4Real courage is when you know you're licked before you begin, but you begin anyway and see it through, no matter what.
