We are all full of weakness and errors; let us mutually pardon each other our follies - it is the first law of nature.
Trust me that as I ignore all law to help the slave, so will I ignore it all to protect an enslaved woman.
Susan B. Anthony
Law is nothing other than a certain ordinance of reason for the common good, promulgated by the person who has the care of the community.
What do lawyers learn in law school? They learn to win... What we've got to start thinking about is how do we solve problems.
I say the law should be blind to race, gender and sexual orientation, just as it claims to be blind to wealth and power. There should be no specially protected groups of any kind, except for children, the severely disabled and the elderly, whose physical frailty demands society's care.
Governments that block the aspirations of their people, that steal or are corrupt, that oppress and torture or that deny freedom of expression and human rights should bear in mind that they will find it increasingly hard to escape the judgement of their own people, or where warranted, the reach of international law.
The natural liberty of man is to be free from any superior power on Earth, and not to be under the will or legislative authority of man, but only to have the law of nature for his rule.
Anywhere, anytime ordinary people are given the chance to choose, the choice is the same: freedom, not tyranny; democracy, not dictatorship; the rule of law, not the rule of the secret police.
In almost every profession - whether it's law or journalism, finance or medicine or academia or running a small business - people rely on confidential communications to do their jobs. We count on the space of trust that confidentiality provides. When someone breaches that trust, we are all worse off for it.
It seems to be a law of nature, inflexible and inexorable, that those who will not risk cannot win.
John Paul Jones
Understand that sexuality is as wide as the sea. Understand that your morality is not law. Understand that we are you. Understand that if we decide to have sex whether safe, safer, or unsafe, it is our decision and you have no rights in our lovemaking.
There is one kind of robber whom the law does not strike at, and who steals what is most precious to men: time.
Any law which violates the inalienable rights of man is essentially unjust and tyrannical; it is not a law at all.
Liberty is the right to do what the law permits.
Charles de Montesquieu
Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law.
Live your life as though your every act were to become a universal law.
Terrorism can never be accepted. We must fight it together, with methods that do not compromise our respect for the rule of law and human rights, or are used as an excuse for others to do so.
Act that your principle of action might safely be made a law for the whole world.
Language is political. That's why you and me, my Brother and Sister, that's why we supposed to choke our natural self into the weird, lying, barbarous, unreal, white speech and writing habits that the schools lay down like holy law.
The death penalty, I think, is a terrible scar on American justice, especially the concept of equal justice under law, but also of due process. And it goes state by state, and it's different in different states.
There is a point at which the law becomes immoral and unethical. That point is reached when it becomes a cloak for the cowardice that dares not stand up against blatant violations of justice.
A man who graduated high in his class at Yale Law School and made partnership in a top law firm would be celebrated. A man who invested wisely would be admired, but a woman who accomplishes this is treated with suspicion.
The very first law in advertising is to avoid the concrete promise and cultivate the delightfully vague.
We cannot ensure that women will be free of discrimination in the workplace and everywhere as long as women are not universally defended under our Constitution. As it stands now, the equal rights of women are subject to interpretation of law. That is a risk our mothers, sisters and daughters cannot afford.
Law enforcement officers are never 'off duty.' They are dedicated public servants who are sworn to protect public safety at any time and place that the peace is threatened. They need all the help that they can get.
John F. Kennedy
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
