These are parts from the interview that I agree the most:
"There isnâ€™t this joy of living which youth expects and youth needs â€“ to learn the joy of living. How do you teach it?"
"Iâ€™d like them to also understand that justice is a meld of law and humanity. Law and humanity; decency in concepts; if we administer law by the soulless logic of the computer, we arenâ€™t on our road to progress."
"For me, the punishment must not fit the crime, the punishment must fit the criminal and the punishment must fit the needs of society."
"If you ever become a criminal lawyer, never look down upon your client. He may be a murderer or he may be a thief; he is a fellow human being. You must try and respect your client no matter what he has done. It is very important in your own self-respect in your work, and to help who is helpless in seeking help."
"Look, at the age of 86, I can say in all earnestness, the thing that matters most in bringing human satisfaction is human relations. To be able to care for your fellow human beings, to be able to give! Never mind about receiving."
