a memorable quote
2 April 2001 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

Perry Mason (speaking to a group of prospective college alumni donors): "There was a trial once in which the artist Whistler sued a man for liable about remarks he made concerning the fees Whistler charged for his paintings. 'Can you tell me,' the opposing lawyer asked, 'how long it took to complete your painting?' Whistler replied, 'two days.' 'And you expect 200 guineas for your two days work?' 'No, I expect it for the knowledge of a lifetime.'"
