Famous quotes containing the words chief justice, republic, justice and/or chief:

    A judge is not supposed to know anything about the facts of life until they have been presented in evidence and explained to him at least three times.
    Parker, Lord Chief Justice (1900–1972)

    Jean Jacques Rousseau ... is nothing but a fool in my eyes when he takes it upon himself to criticise society; he did not understand it, and approached it with the heart of an upstart flunkey.... For all his preaching a Republic and the overthrow of monarchical titles, the upstart is mad with joy if a Duke alters the course of his after-dinner stroll to accompany one of his friends.
    Stendhal [Marie Henri Beyle] (1783–1842)

    ‘Alas!’ quoth he, ‘but newly born in fiery heats I fry,
    Yet none approach to warm their hearts or feel my fire but I.
    My faultless breast the furnace is, the fuel wounding thorns;
    Love is the fire, and sighs the smoke, the ashes shame and scorns;
    The fuel justice layeth on, and mercy blows the coals;
    The metal in this furnace wrought are men’s defiled souls;
    Robert Southwell (1561?–1595)

    Here undoubtedly lies the chief poetic energy:Min the force of imagination that pierces or exalts the solid fact, instead of floating among cloud-pictures.
    George Eliot [Mary Ann (or Marian)
