Justice Quotes

This reasonable moderator, and equal piece of justice, Death.

Sir Thomas Browne

The essence of justice is mercy.

Edwin Hubbell Chapin

Absolute freedom mocks at justice. Absolute justice denies freedom. To be fruitful, the two ideas must find their limits in each other.

Albert Camus

Justice could be cruel, and crueler yet necessity, but mercy was the cruelest thing of all.

Orson Scott Card

The dead cannot cry out for justice; it is a duty of the living to do so for them.

Lois McMaster Bujold

What are the American ideals? They are the development of the individual for his own and the common good; the development of the individual through liberty, and the attainment of the common good through democracy and social justice.

Louis Dembitz Brandeis

Ignorance, allied with power, is the most ferocious enemy justice can have.

James Baldwin

Words like freedom, justice, democracy are not common concepts; on the contrary, they are rare. People are not born knowing what these are. It takes enormous and, above all, individual effort to arrive at the respect for other people that these words imply.

James Baldwin

The world is a fine place. The only thing wrong with it is us. How little justice and humility there is in us, how poorly we understand patriotism!

Anton Pavlovich Chekhov

Injustice is relatively easy to bear; what stings is justice.

Henry Louis Mencken

I want justice. And there's an old poster out West, I recall, that says, "Wanted: Dead or Alive."

George Walker Bush

We cannot rely exclusively on military power to assure our long-term security. Lasting peace is gained as justice and democracy advance.

George Walker Bush

For decades, the circle of liberty and security and development has been expanding in our world. This progress has brought unity to Europe, self-government to Latin America and Asia, and new hope to Africa. Now we have the historic chance to widen the circle even further, to fight radicalism and terror with justice and dignity, to achieve a true peace, founded on human freedom.

George Walker Bush

Justice that love gives is a surrender, justice that law gives is a punishment.

Mahatma Gandhi

Even the devil gives some justice to his victims, when they're beyond all help.

Orson Scott Card

Justice is not to be taken by storm. She is to be wooed by slow advances. Substitute statute for decision, and you shift the center of authority, but add no quota of inspired wisdom.

Benjamin Nathan Cardozo

When it comes to the desire for liberty and justice, there is no clash of civilizations. People everywhere are capable of freedom, and worthy of freedom.

George Walker Bush

Obama is neither a socialist, nor a mere political accountant. He has some modest ideals, and may yet be an excellent president. But what is needed to revive liberal idealism is a set of new ideas on how to promote justice, equality and freedom in the world. Reagan, Thatcher, and Gorbachev, assisted in the end of an ideology, which once offered hope, and inspired real progress, but resulted in slavery and mass murder. We are still waiting for a new vision, which will lead to progress, but this time, we hope, without tyranny.

Ian Buruma

Barbara Levy Boxer

Everything is what it is: liberty is liberty, not equality or fairness or justice or culture, or human happiness or a quiet conscience.

Sir Isaiah Berlin

A novel is balanced between a few true impressions and the multitude of false ones that make up most of what we call life. It tells us that for every human being there is a diversity of existences, that the single existence is itself an illusion in part, that these many existences signify something, tend to something, fulfill something; it promises us meaning, harmony, and even justice.

Saul Bellow

For a successful revolution it is not enough that there is discontent. What is required is a profound and thorough conviction of the justice, necessity and importance of political and social rights.
