INJUSTICE
[ Also see Equity Justice Law Offense Oppression Partiality Persecution Tyranny Wrong ]

No one will dare maintain that it is better to do injustice than to bear it.
      - Aristotle

Those who commit injustice bear the greatest burden.
      - Hosea Ballou

Fraud is the ready minister of injustice.
      - Edmund Burke

If thou suffer injustice, console thyself; the true unhappiness is in doing it.
      - Democritus

It is not possible to found a lasting power upon injustice, perjury, and treachery. These may, perhaps, succeed for once, and borrow for awhile, from hope, a gay and flourishing appearance. But time betrays their weakness, and they fall into ruin of themselves. For, as in structures of every kind, the lower parts should have the greatest firmness--so the grounds and principles of actions should be just and true.
      - Demosthenes

In the little world in which children have their existence, whosoever brings them up, there is nothing so finely perceived and so finely felt as injustice.
      - Charles Dickens

Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them.
      - Frederick Douglass

Every social injustice is not only cruel, but it is economic waste.
      - William Feather

He that acts unjustly
  Is the worst rebel to himself; and though now
    Ambition's trumpet and the drum of power
      May drown the sound, yet conscience will one day
        Speak loudly to him.
      - William Havard

A book might be written on the injustice of the just.
      - Anthony Hope (pseudonym of Sir Anthony Hope Hawkins)

An injustice anywhere is an injustice everywhere.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

Injustice arises either from precipitation or indolence or from a mixture of both. The rapid and the slow are seldom just; the unjust wait either not at all, or wait too long.
      - Johann Kaspar Lavater (John Caspar Lavater)

The greatest of all injustice is that which goes under the name of law; and of all sorts of tyranny the forcing the letter of the law against the equity is the most insupportable.
      - Sir Roger L'Estrange

Extremists are seldom just.
      - William Paley, Archdeacon of Saragossa

Did the mass of men know the actual selfishness and injustice of their rulers, not a government would stand a year. The world would foment with revolution.
      - Theodore Parker

He who commits injustice is ever made more wretched than he who suffers it.
      - Plato (originally Aristocles}

Those who reproach injustice do so because they are afraid not of doing it but of suffering it.
      - Plato (originally Aristocles}, Republic

The world has no long injustices.
      - Marquise de Sevigne, Marie de Rabutin-Chantal

The injustice of men subserves the justice of God, and often His mercy.
      - Madame Anne Sophie Swetchine (Soimonoff)

Under a government which imprisons any unjustly, the true place for a just man is also a prison.
      - Henry David Thoreau

Whatever the human law may be, neither an individual nor a nation can commit the least act of injustice against the obscurest individual without having to pay the penalty for it.
      - Henry David Thoreau

Men's indignation, it seems, is more excited by legal wrong than by violent wrong; the first looks like being cheated by an equal, the second like being compelled by a superior.
      - Thucydides

There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest.
      - Elie Wiesel
