“You know, so much of the time we’re just lost …. And there is no justice: the rich win, the poor are powerless. We become tired of hearing people lie. And after a time, we become dead ... a little dead. We think of ourselves as victims ... and we become victims. We become weak. We doubt ourselves, we doubt our beliefs. We doubt our institutions. And we doubt the law. But today you are the law. You are the law. Not some book ... not the lawyers ... not a marble statue ... or the trappingsof the court. See, those are just symbols of our desire to be just. They are, in fact, a prayer: a fervent and a frightened prayer …. If we are to have faith in justice, we need only to believe in ourselves.”
—The Verdict Twentieth Century-Fox Film Corporation, Screenplay by David Mamet
