Codes

Famous quotes containing the word codes:

    I cannot help thinking that the menace of Hell makes as many devils as the severe penal codes of inhuman humanity make villains.
    George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)

    We must trust infinitely to the beneficent necessity which shines through all laws. Human nature expresses itself in them as characteristically as in statues, or songs, or railroads, and an abstract of the codes of nations would be an abstract of the common conscience.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    ... until both employers’ and workers’ groups assume responsibility for chastising their own recalcitrant children, they can vainly bay the moon about “ignorant” and “unfair” public criticism. Moreover, their failure to impose voluntarily upon their own groups codes of decency and honor will result in more and more necessity for government control.
    Mary Barnett Gilson (1877–?)
