Law

Famous quotes containing the word law:

    I hope I may claim in the present work to have made it probable that the laws of arithmetic are analytic judgments and consequently a priori. Arithmetic thus becomes simply a development of logic, and every proposition of arithmetic a law of logic, albeit a derivative one. To apply arithmetic in the physical sciences is to bring logic to bear on observed facts; calculation becomes deduction.
    Gottlob Frege (1848–1925)

    You’ve just fulfilled the first role of law enforcement. Make sure when your shift is over you go home alive.
    David Mamet, U.S. screenwriter, and Brian DePlama. Jimmy Malone (Sean Connery)

    The one point on which all women are in furious secret rebellion against the existing law is the saddling of the right to a child with the obligation to become the servant of a man.
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)
