Legal Language

Famous quotes containing the words legal and/or language:

    The trouble with Eichmann was precisely that so many were like him, and that the many were neither perverted nor sadistic, that they were, and still are, terribly and terrifyingly normal. From the viewpoint of our legal institutions and of our moral standards of judgment, this normality was much more terrifying than all the atrocities put together.
    Hannah Arendt (1906–1975)

    Repeat thy song, till the familiar lines
    Are footpaths for the thought of Italy!
    Thy flame is blown abroad from all the heights,
    Through all the nations, and a sound is heard,
    As of a mighty wind, and men devout,
    Strangers of Rome, and the new proselytes,
    In their own language hear thy wondrous word,
    And many are amazed and many doubt.
    Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1809–1882)
