mankind censure injustice, fearing that they may be the victims of it and not because they shrink from commintting it.
one of the most striking and salutary thing in ameican life is the widespread study of law.
law is the crystallizaton of the habit and thought of society.
no society can make a perpetual constitution, or even a perpetual law.
in nature there are no rewards or punishments; there are consequences.
i disapprove of what you say, but i will defend to the death your right to say it.
law can nerver be enforced unless fear supports it.
the law cannot make all men equal, but they are all equal before the law.
really, what we want now, is not laws, against crime, but a law a -gainst insaity.
the administration of the law can never go lax where every individual sees to it that it grows not lax in his own case, or in cases which fall under his eyes.
punishment is justice for the unjust.
singularity is almost invariably a clue. the more featureless and commonplace a crime is, the more difficult is it to bring it home.
