    Justice quotes by:    

Yes, let God be the Judge. Your job today is to be a witness.

    Author: Warren Wiersbe

No obligation to justice does force a man to be cruel, or to use the sharpest sentence. A just man does justice to every man and to everything; and then, if he be also wise, he knows there is a debt of mercy and compassion due to the infirmities of man's nature; and that is to be paid; and he that is cruel and ungentle to a sinning person, and does the worst to him, is in his debt and is unjust.

    Author: Jeremy Taylor

Equity is a roguish thing. For law we have a measure, and know what to trust to; equity is according to the conscience of him that is chancellor, and as that is larger or narrower, so is equity. It is all one as if they should make the standard for the measure we call a foot, a chancellor's foot. What an uncertain measure would this be! One chancellor has a long foot; another, a short foot; a third, an indifferent foot. It is the same thing with the chancellor's conscience.

    Author: John Selden

Equity in law is the same that the spirit is in religion, what every one pleases to make it: sometimes they go according to conscience, sometimes according to law, sometimes according to the rule of court.

    Author: John Selden

The Judge will pass sentence, not according to what any other person has said concerning you, but according to what you have yourself spoken. They that are accused, then, have no fear, but they that accuse.

    Author: John Chrysostom

And all men are ready to pass judgement on the priest as if he was not a being clothed with flesh, or one who inherited a human nature.

    Author: John Chrysostom

The incentive to peacemaking is love, but it degenerates into appeasement whenever justice is ignored. To forgive and to ask for forgiveness are both costly exercises. All authentic Christian peacemaking exhibits the love and justice - and so the pain - of the cross.

    Author: John Stott

Justice is a temporary thing that must at last come to an end; but the conscience is eternal and will never die.

    Author: Martin Luther

Peace is more important than all justice; and peace was not made for the sake of justice, but justice for the sake of peace.

    Author: Martin Luther

A right delayed is a right denied.

    Author: Martin Luther King, Jr.

Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed.

    Author: Martin Luther King, Jr.

I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made straight and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed and all flesh shall see it together.

    Author: Martin Luther King, Jr.
