    Laws Quotes

    Quotations about Laws

    • Necessity has no law.
    • The more laws and order are made prominent, The more thieves and robbers there will be.
      The Way of Lao-tzu, by Lao Tzu
    • Let me not be understood as saying that there are no bad laws, nor that grievances may not arise for the redress of which no legal provisions have been made. I mean to say no such thing. But I do mean to say that although bad laws, if they exist, should be repealed as soon as possible, still, while they continue in force, for the sake of example they should be religiously observed.
    • Good laws have their origins in bad morals.
    • The law is not so much carved in stone as it is written in water, flowing in and out with the tide.
      Northern Exposure, Crime and Punishment, 1992, by Jeff Melvoin
    • A judge is a law student who marks his own examination papers.
    • The trouble with fighting for human freedom is that one spends most of one's time defending scoundrels. For it is against scoundrels that oppressive laws are first aimed, and oppression must be stopped at the beginning if it is to be stopped at all.
    • In the state of nature...all men are born equal, but they cannot continue in this equality. Society makes them lose it, and they recover it only by the protection of the law.
    • What power has law where only money rules.
    • Laws are partly formed for the sake of good men, in order to instruct them how they may live on friendly terms with one another, and partly for the sake of those who refuse to be instructed, whose spirit cannot be subdued, or softened, or hindered from plunging into evil.
      by Plato
