Famous quotes containing the word justice:

    Men are mad most of their lives; few live sane, fewer die so.... The acts of people are baffling unless we realize that their wits are disordered. Man is driven to justice by his lunacy.
    Edward Dahlberg (1900–1977)

    You are all alike, you respectable people. You can’t tell me the bursting strain of a ten-inch gun, which is a very simple matter; but you all think you can tell me the bursting strain of a man under temptation. You daren’t handle high explosives; but you’re all ready to handle honesty and truth and justice and the whole duty of man, and kill one another at that game. What a country! What a world!
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)

    The only government that I recognize—and it matters not how few are at the head of it, or how small its army—is that power that establishes justice in the land, never that which establishes injustice.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
