Peace is more important than all justice; and peace was not made for the sake of justice, but justice for the sake of peace.
Martin Luther quotes
It is open to a war resister to judge between the combatants and wish success to the one who has justice on his side. By so judging he is more likely to bring peace between the two than by remaining a mere spectator.
Mahatma Gandhi quotes
Justice is a certain rectitude of mind whereby a man does what he ought to do in the circumstance confronting him.
St. Thomas Aquinas quotes
Justice is not to be taken by storm. She is to be wooed by slow advances.
Benjamin Cardozo quotes
If language is not correct, then what is said is not what is meant; if what is said is not what is meant, then what must be done remains undone; if this remains undone, morals and art will deteriorate; if justice goes astray, the people will stand about in helpless confusion. Hence there must be no arbitrariness in what is said. This matters above everything.
Justice and power must be brought together, so that whatever is just may be powerful, and whatever is powerful may be just.
Blaise Pascal quotes
Justice is itself the great standing policy of civil society; and any eminent departure from it, under any circumstances, lies under the suspicion of being no policy at all.
Edmund Burke quotes
Justice denied anywhere diminishes justice everywhere.
Martin Luther King, Jr. quotes
Rigid justice is the greatest injustice.
Thomas Fuller quotes
I believe that justice is instinct and innate; the moral sense is as much a part of our constitution as the threat of feeling, seeing and hearing.
Thomas Jefferson quotes
