A Quote by Ambrose Gwinett Bierce on judgment, order, and purpose

TRIAL, n. A formal inquiry designed to prove and put upon record the blameless characters of judges, advocates and jurors. In order to effect this purpose it is necessary to supply a contrast in the person of one who is called the defendant.

Ambrose Bierce (1842 - 1914)
