Nobody gets justice. People only get good luck or bad luck.
I have always found that mercy bears richer fruits than strict justice.

Justice is sweet and musical; but injustice is harsh and discordant.
Henry David Thoreau

Hunter S. Thompson

We sought justice because equal pay for equal work is an American value. That fight took me ten years. It took me all the way to the Supreme Court. And, in a 5-4 decision, they stood on the side of those who shortchanged my pay, my overtime, and my retirement just because I am a woman.

I have been singing for the last 50 years, you know, so I deserve a break. Besides, there are talented singers around who can do justice to their work.
The American flag is an enduring symbol of liberty, democracy, and justice. It is fitting that the House act to protect it as we approach our nation's birthday, and as our men and women in uniform rally behind it in Iraq's battlefields.
I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that his justice cannot sleep forever.
Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice. And moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.
