Famous quotes containing the word law:

    There is a law in each well-ordered nation
    To curb those raging appetites that are
    Most disobedient and refractory.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    There are no fixtures in nature. The universe is fluid and volatile. Permanence is but a word of degrees. Our globe seen by God is a transparent law, not a mass of facts. The law dissolves the fact and holds it fluid.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    You made us in the House of Pain. You made us things. Not men, not beasts, part-man, part-beast: things.
    Waldemar Young, U.S. screenwriter. Erle C. Kenton. Sayer of the Law (Bela Lugosi)
