Justice


Justice is an unassailable fortress, built on the brow of a mountain which cannot be overthrown by the violence of torrents, nor demolished by the force of armies. - Joseph Addison

Justice is the constant and perpetual wish to render to every one his due. - Emperor Justinian

Justice is the exchange of equivalencies. - Leo J. Muir 

Justice will not be served until those who are unaffected are as outraged as those who are. - Benjamin Franklin

The death penalty is not about vengeance or deterrence. It is about justice. It is a measure of a nationss civility and moral backbone that it rewards and punishes in due measure for great deeds and heinous crimes. So, along with Nobel prizes for great accomplishments, humans must also be brave enough and morally confident enough to exact severe penalties for those who commit the worst deed known to humankind: murder. - David Elmore

Though force can protect in emergency, only justice, fairness, consideration and cooperation can finally lead men to the dawn of eternal peace. - Dwight Eisenhower

To be perfectly just is an attribute of the divine nature; to be so to the utmost of our abilities, is the glory of man. - Joseph Addison
