Damages Jewish Law Miscellaneous Torts and Damages

Famous quotes containing the words damages, jewish and/or law:

    According to the law of nature it is only fair that no one should become richer through damages and injuries suffered by another.
    Marcus Tullius Cicero (106–43 B.C.)

    I know that I will always be expected to have extra insight into black texts—especially texts by black women. A working-class Jewish woman from Brooklyn could become an expert on Shakespeare or Baudelaire, my students seemed to believe, if she mastered the language, the texts, and the critical literature. But they would not grant that a middle-class white man could ever be a trusted authority on Toni Morrison.
    Claire Oberon Garcia, African American scholar and educator. Chronicle of Higher Education, p. B2 (July 27, 1994)

    It seems to be a law in American life that whatever enriches us anywhere except in the wallet inevitably becomes uneconomic.
    Russell Baker (b. 1925)
