Famous quotes containing the words department and/or justice:

    While the focus in the landscape of Old World cities was commonly government structures, churches, or the residences of rulers, the landscape and the skyline of American cities have boasted their hotels, department stores, office buildings, apartments, and skyscrapers. In this grandeur, Americans have expressed their Booster Pride, their hopes for visitors and new settlers, and customers, for thriving commerce and industry.
    Daniel J. Boorstin (b. 1914)

    Deep in the human heart
    The fire of justice burns;
    A vision of a world renewed
    Through radical concern.
    William L. Wallace (20th century)
