Law

Famous quotes containing the word law:

    The law will never make a man free; it is men who have got to make the law free.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    I consider, then, the power to annul a law of the United States, assumed by one state, incompatible with the existence of the Union, contradicted expressly by the letter of the Constitution, unauthorized by its spirit, inconsistent with every principle on which it was founded, and destructive of the great object for which it was formed.
    Andrew Jackson (1767–1845)

    Macavity, Macavity, there’s no one like Macavity,
    He’s broken every human law, he breaks the law of gravity.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)
