Famous quotes containing the word law:

    Here, lads, we live by the law of the taiga. But even here people manage to live. D’you know who are the ones the camps finish off? Those who lick other men’s left-overs, those who set store by the doctors, and those who peach on their mates.
    Alexander Solzhenitsyn (b. 1918)

    The older I get the more I trust in the law according to which the rose and the lily bloom.
    Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749–1832)

    We accept and welcome ... as conditions to which we must accommodate ourselves, great inequality of environment; the concentration of business, industrial and commercial, in the hands of a few; and the law of competition between these, as being not only beneficial, but essential for the future progress of the race.
    Andrew Carnegie (1835–1919)
