Law is born from despair of human nature.
Jose Ortega y Gasset
There is no contradiction between effective law enforcement and respect for civil and human rights. Dr. King did not stir us to move for our civil rights to have them taken away in these kinds of fashions.
Reason is the life of the law; nay, the common law itself is nothing else but reason - the law which is perfection of reason.
China has not established the rule of law and if there is a power above the law there is no social justice. Everybody can be subjected to harm. I'm just a citizen: my life is equal in value to any other. But I'm thankful that when I lost my freedom so many people shared feelings and put such touching effort into helping me.
I'm into the law of attraction and quantum physics. Like cosmic ordering. It's all about thinking lovely things that you would like in life, and feeling good about them before they manifest, so that by the time they do, you don't want them because you're on to your next desire.
Not that I wish by any means to deny, that the mental life of individuals and peoples is also in conformity with law, as is the object of philosophical, philological, historical, moral, and social sciences to establish.
Hermann von Helmholtz
Two things form the bedrock of any open society - freedom of expression and rule of law. If you don't have those things, you don't have a free country.
That which is not just is not law.
William Lloyd Garrison
I am ashamed the law is such an ass.
Justice is merely incidental to law and order.
J. Edgar Hoover
Sure, I always chose rebels to identify with - I still do - but to me a rebel isn't so much someone who breaks the law as someone who goes against the odds.
Murders with guns are the No. 1 cause of death for African-American men between the ages of 15 and 34. But talking about race in the context of guns would also mean taking on a subject that can't be addressed by passing a law: the family-breakdown issues that lead too many minority children to find social status and power in guns.
Who to himself is law, no law doth need, offends no law, and is a king indeed.
Common sense often makes good law.
William O. Douglas
Law is nothing unless close behind it stands a warm, living public opinion.
Thus lynch law held sway in the far West until civilization spread into the Territories and the orderly processes of law took its place. The emergency no longer existing, lynching gradually disappeared from the West.
Ida B. Wells
Finally, is not liberty the restricting of the law only to its rational sphere of organizing the right of the individual to lawful self-defense; of punishing injustice?
It will not do to say that international law is the enemy of the Jewish people, since the Jewish people surely did not as a whole oppose the Nuremburg trials, or the development of human rights law.
Englishmen learn Christ's law best in English. Moses heard God's law in his own tongue; so did Christ's apostles.
Governor Jan Brewer and the Arizona legislature have created an environment in Arizona where performing is no longer a neutral act. They have created an environment where they can convert the normal commercial interaction between artists and their fans into the means to apply this racist law.
Zack de la Rocha
That's an interesting question. I would say that in general Americans know very little about the law. It's one of those things that most of us take for granted.
When things could've gone really bad, rugby caught my interest and I really stuck with it. The sport brought me, maybe off the streets where we'd be fighting, into putting in a good effort in the rugby field where you're kind of rewarded for that rough behaviour instead of in trouble with the law.
When the severity of the law is to be softened, let pity, not bribes, be the motive.
Miguel de Cervantes
You've got to learn to accept the law of life, and face the fact that we disintegrate slowly.
First I went to the Sorbonne to do my licence en lettres, but I also started to study law.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Martin Luther King, Jr.
