Canada is founded upon principles that recognize the supremacy of God and the rule of law.
In the name of the rule of law, democracy and human rights, we cannot accept that the rights of individuals (Arab or Muslim) be trampled upon, or that populations are targeted and discriminated against in the name of the war against terrorism.
I firmly believe in the rule of law as the foundation for all of our basic rights.
Unfortunately, the true force which propels our endless political disputes, our constant struggles for political advantage, is often not our burning concern for democracy, it is often of our dedication to the principle of the rule of law.
I'd like to see the high schools put in a rule that limits recruitable athletes from playing on teams outside a 100-mile radius from their home or school.
A director will always tell you, when you go in to do a scene, 'You go as big as you want, and I'll tell you when to come down.' And I found that on 'Shameless,' you can't follow that rule because they will never tell you to come down. So, I've had to find my own balance with when it makes sense to get this upset or angry.
Jeremy Allen White
The high destiny of the individual is to serve rather than to rule.
Most fish require a short cooking time, but cephalopods are the exception to this fishy rule. As with some cuts of larger land beasts, the longer they're cooked, the more tender they get.

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.
As a rough rule of thumb, I would say the smaller the pond, the more belligerent the fish.
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.
There is no exception to the rule that every rule has an exception.
If we are ever in doubt about what to do, it is a good rule to ask ourselves what we shall wish on the morrow that we had done.
The art of being a slave is to rule one's master.
The crisis of democracy in the West is not the result of falling in love with another system. In Europe and America people who are disillusioned with democracy do not dream about the Chinese model or any other form of authoritarian rule. They do not dream about government that controls Internet and puts in prison those daring to disagree.
Shall we make a new rule of life from tonight: always to try to be a little kinder than is necessary?
James M. Barrie
It would be too frightening for me to consider myself a role model. But I like the idea of not being afraid of letting your imagination rule you, to feel the freedom of expression, to let creativity be your overwhelming drive rather than other things.
I have a rule on my team: when we talk to one another, we look each other right in the eye, because I think it's tough to lie to somebody. You give respect to somebody.
Wars are, of course, as a rule to be avoided; but they are far better than certain kinds of peace.
It is not good to have a rule of many.

I would ask: Given the nature of free-market capitalism - where the rule is to rise to the top at all costs - is it possible to have a financial industry hero? And by the way, this is not a pop-culture trend we're talking about. There aren't many financial heroes in literature, theater or cinema.
Intelligence agencies keep things secret because they often violate the rule of law or of good behavior.
Great countries need to secure their border for national security purposes, for economic purposes and for rule of law purposes.
I'm accustomed to Internet forums where rudeness and incivility are the rule, where too many people seem to take pride in their insults.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Leonardo da Vinci
