Laws

Famous quotes containing the word laws:

    Laws and customs may be creative of vice; and should be therefore perpetually under process of observation and correction: but laws and customs cannot be creative of virtue: they may encourage and help to preserve it; but they cannot originate it.
    Harriet Martineau (1802–1876)

    Surely it is one of the simplest laws of taste in dress, that it shall not attract undue attention from the wearer to the worn.
    Elizabeth Stuart Phelps (1844–1911)
