Famous quotes containing the word justice:

    Not to help justice in her need would be an impiety.
    Plato (c. 427–347 B.C.)

    Have your union. You need it. Alone you are weak. Together you are strong. But remember, that with strength goes responsibility to others and yourselves. For you cannot conquer injustice with more injustice, only with justice and the help of God.
    Philip Dunne (1908–1992)

    Man is, then, only disguise, falsehood, hypocrisy—both in himself and in regard to others. He does not wish any one to tell him the truth; he avoids telling it to others; and all these dispositions, so removed from justice and reason, have a natural root in his heart.
    Blaise Pascal (1623–1662)
