Famous quotes containing the word law:

    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)

    Unless we maintain correctional institutions of such character that they create respect for law and government instead of breeding resentment and a desire for revenge, we are meeting lawlessness with stupidity and making a travesty of justice.
    Mary B. Harris (1874–1957)

I do not hear of men being forced to live this way or that by masses of men. What sort of life were that to live?
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
