Famous quotes containing the words justice and/or political:

    I not deny
    The jury, passing on the prisoner’s life,
    May in the sworn twelve have a thief or two
    Guiltier than him they try. What’s open made to justice,
    That justice seizes.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    I have no purpose to introduce political and social equality between the white and black races. There is a physical difference between the two, which, in my judgement, will probably for ever forbid their living together upon the footing of perfect equality; and inasmuch as it becomes a necessity that there must be a difference, I ... am in favour of the race to which I belong having the superior position.
    Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865)
