justice and judgement Quotes

Five of the best book quotes about justice and judgement
  1. #1
    “The questioners had that beautiful detachment and devotion to stern justice of men dealing in death without being in any danger of it.”
  2. #2
    If that’s the eye of the law, the law is a bachelor; and the worst I wish the law is, that his eye may be opened by experience.
  3. #3
    “But mercy is above this sceptred sway;
    It is enthroned in the hearts of kings,
    It is an attribute to God himself;
    And earthly power doth then shew likest Gods
    When mercy seasons justice.”
  4. #4
    “Had you been as wise as bold,
    Young in limbs, in judgement old,
    Your answer had not been inscrolled.
    Fare you well, your suit is cold.”
  5. #5
    “But, with such an outlook,” Franz told the count, “which makes you judge and executioner in your own case, it would be hard for you to confine yourself to actions that would leave you forever immune to the power of the law. Hatred is blind and anger deaf: the one who pours himself a cup of vengeance is likely to drink a bitter draught.”
    “Yes, if he is clumsy and poor; no, if he is a millionaire and adroit.”
