Whoever fights, whoever falls,
  Justice conquers evermore.

Justice is the great end of civil society.
      - David Dudley Field

Justice is the means by which established injustices are sanctioned.
      - Jacques Anatole I. France (Jacques Anatole Thibault)

Justice is as strictly due between neighbor nations as between between neighbor citizens. A highwayman is as much a robber when he plunders in a gang, as when single; and a nation that makes an unjust war is only a great gang.
      - Benjamin Franklin

Pity and forbearance should characterize all acts of justice.
      - Benjamin Franklin

Justice without wisdom is impossible.
      - James Anthony Froude,

One man's word is no man's word; we should quietly hear both sides.
      - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

I have loved justice and hated inequity; and therefore I die in exile.
  [Lat., Dilexi justitiam et odi iniquitatem, propterea morior in exilio.]
      - Pope Gregory VII (Hildebrand),
        in "Bowden's Life of Gregory VII", vol. II, bk. III, ch. XX

Ay, justice, who evades her?
  Her scales reach every heart;
    The action and the motive,
      She weigheth each apart;
        And none who swerve from right or truth
          Can 'scape her penalty.
      - Mrs. Sarah Josepha (Buell) Hale

My Lords, I have more than once had occasion to say that in construing a statute I believe the worst person to construe it is the person who is responsible for its draft.
      - Lord Halsbury, Hardinge Stanley Giffard,
        1902 Appeal Cases (p. 477)

I think the first duty of society is justice.
      - Alexander Hamilton

Continuity with the past is a necessity, not a duty.
      - Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.

Justice, though moving with tardy pace, has seldom failed to overtake the wicked in their flight.
  [Lat., Raro antecedentem scelestum
    Deseruit pede poena claudo.]
      - Horace (Quintus Horatius Flaccus), Carmina
         (III, 2, 31)

Justice is indispensably and universally necessary, and what is necessary must always be limited, uniform, and distinct.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

To embarrass justice by a multiplicity of laws, or to hazard it by confidence in judges, are the opposite rocks on which all civil institutions have been wrecked, and between which legislative wisdom has never yet found an open passage.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

Justice is truth in action.
      - Joseph Joubert

Justice is the firm and continuous desire to render to everyone that which is his due.
      - Justinian I, the Great ("Emperor of the East")

Until the great mass of the people shall be filled with the sense of responsibility for each other's welfare, social justice can never be attained.
      - Helen Adams Keller
