Famous quotes containing the words chief and/or justice:

    The Chief Defect of Henry King
    Was chewing little bits of String.
    At last he swallowed some which tied
    Itself in ugly Knots inside.
    Hilaire Belloc (1870–1953)

    You cannot do justice to the dead. When we talk about doing justice to the dead we are talking about retribution for the harm done to them. But retribution and justice are two different things.
    William, Lord Shawcross (b. 1902)
