Law And Order quotes by David Mitchell
#1. Speak to me about power. What is it?"
I do believe I'm being out-Cambridged. "You want me to discuss power? Right here and now?"
Her shapely head tilts. "No time except the present."
"Okay." Only for a ten. "Power is the ability to make someone do what they otherwise wouldn't, or deter them from doing what they otherwise would."
Immaculée Constantin is unreadable. "How?"
"By coercion and reward. Carrots and sticks, though in bad light one looks much like the other. Coercion is predicated upon the fear of violence or suffering. 'Obey, or you'll regret it.' Tenth-century Danes exacted tribute by it; the cohesion of the Warsaw Pact rested upon it; and playground bullies rule by it. Law and order relies upon it. That's why we bang up criminals and why even democracies seek to monopolize force." Immaculée Constantin watches my face as I talk; it's thrilling and distracting. "Reward works by promising 'Obey and benefit.' This dynamic is at work in, let's say, the positioning of NATO bases in nonmember states, dog training, and putting up with a shitty job for your working life. How am I doing?"
Security Goblin's sneeze booms through the chapel.
"You scratch the surface," says Immaculée Constantin.
I feel lust and annoyance. "Scratch deeper, then."
She brushes a tuft of fluff off her glove and appears to address her hand: "Power is lost or won, never created or destroyed. Power is a visitor to, not a possession of, those it empowers. The #Quote by David Mitchell
Law And Order quotes by Louis MacNeice
#2. Let us thank God for valour in abstraction
For those who go their own way, will not kiss
The arse of law and order nor compound
For physical comfort at the price of pride #Quote by Louis MacNeice
Law And Order quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#3. It's only in drugs or death we'll see anything new, and death is just too controlling. #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
Law And Order quotes by Michelle Alexander
#4. History reveals that the seeds of the new system of control were planted well before the end of the Civil Rights Movement. A new race-neutral language was developed for appealing to old racist sentiments, a language accompanied by a political movement that succeeded in putting the vast majority of blacks back in their place. Proponents of racial hierarchy found they could install a new racial caste system without violating law or the new limits of acceptable political discourse, by demanding "law and order" rather than "segregation forever. #Quote by Michelle Alexander
Law And Order quotes by Angie Harmon
#5. I left 'Law and Order' because I really honestly did want to do movies and did want to be a movie star since I was a little girl. #Quote by Angie Harmon
Law And Order quotes by Jill Shalvis
#6. Listen, we watch Law and Order. We know shit happens. And shit's happening. #Quote by Jill Shalvis
Law And Order quotes by Frank I. Cobb
#7. This is revolution in reaction, as well as in radicalism, and Toryism speaking a jargon of law and order may often be a graver menace to liberty than radicalism bellowing the empty phrases of the soapbox demagogue. #Quote by Frank I. Cobb
Law And Order quotes by Daniel Webster
#8. On the other hand, the cultivation of the religious sentiment represses licentiousnessinspires respect for law and order, and gives strength to the whole social fabric, at the same time that it conducts the human soul upward to the Author of its being. #Quote by Daniel Webster
Law And Order quotes by James E. Faust
#9. Among the other values children should be taught are respect for others, beginning with the child's own parents and family; respect for the symbols of faith and the patriotic beliefs of others; respect for law and order; respect for the property of others; respect for authority. #Quote by James E. Faust
Law And Order quotes by David Frum
#10. The Great Society went wrong for three major reasons. First, the self-organization the Johnson administration promoted turned out to be not the pooling of family and community resources into shops and businesses, but political pressure for government handouts. Second, the Great Society failed to anticipate the perverse side-effects of handing money out to people who have done nothing to earn it. Third, while the Great Society was showering money on the poor, the Supreme Court was with childlike glee smashing to bits traditional methods of maintaining law and order. #Quote by David Frum
Law And Order quotes by Gregory A. Boyd
#11. Participants in the kingdom of the world trust the power of the sword to control behavior; participants of the kingdom of God trust the power of self-sacrificial love to transform hearts. The kingdom of the world is concerned with preserving law and order by force; the kingdom of God is concerned with establishing the rule of God through love. The kingdom of the world is centrally concerned with what people do; the kingdom of God is centrally concerned with how people are and what they can become.The kingdom of the world is characterized by judgment; the kingdom of God is characterized by outrageous, even scandalous, grace. #Quote by Gregory A. Boyd
Law And Order quotes by Marietta Holley
#12. I wanted to visit the Capitol of our country, the center of our great civilization that stands like the sun in the solar system, sendin' out beams of power and wisdom and law and order, and justice and injustice, and money and oratory, and talk and talk, and wind and everything, to the uttermost points of our vast possessions, and from them clear to the ends of the earth. #Quote by Marietta Holley
Law And Order quotes by Hubert H. Humphrey
#13. We can not expect to breed respect for law and order among people who do not share the fruits of our freedom. #Quote by Hubert H. Humphrey
Law And Order quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#14. Law is only a temporary fix for chaos, not the cure. The only cure for chaos is individual responsibility. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Law And Order quotes by Michel De Certeau
#15. The sick man is taken away by the institution that takes charge not of the individual, but of his illness, an isolated object transformed or eliminated by technicians devoted to the defense of health the way others are attached to the defense of law and order or tidiness. #Quote by Michel De Certeau
Law And Order quotes by Narendra Modi
#16. Convergence of technology and the judicial system is the need-of-the-hour. We need to go digital and adopt online analysis of legal cases. Dissemination of legal knowledge to the common man will also a go a long way in improving the law and order situation in the country. #Quote by Narendra Modi
Law And Order quotes by Spiro Agnew
#17. Ultraliberalism today translates into a whimpering isolationism in foreign policy, a mulish obstructionism in domestic policy, and a pusillanimous pussyfooting on the critical issue of law and order. #Quote by Spiro Agnew
Law And Order quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#18. You realize that people take drugs because it's the only real personal adventure left to them in their time-constrained, law-and-order, property-lined world. #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
Law And Order quotes by P.S. Jagadeesh Kumar
#19. The primary focus of a cop should be to marry the justice In the hands of law not to masturbate the justice in his hands #Quote by P.S. Jagadeesh Kumar
Law And Order quotes by Paul Karl Feyerabend
#20. Science is essentially an anarchic enterprise: theoretical anarchism is more humanitarian and more likely to encourage progress than its law-and-order alternatives. #Quote by Paul Karl Feyerabend
Law And Order quotes by Henry Hazlitt
#21. The essential function of the State is to maintain peace, justice, law, and order, and to protect the individual citizen against aggression, violence, theft, and fraud. #Quote by Henry Hazlitt
Law And Order quotes by J. William Fulbright
#22. It is not our affluence, or our plumbing, or our clogged freeways that grip the imagination of others. Rather, it is the values upon which our system is built. These values imply our adherence not only to liberty and individual freedom, but also to international peace, law and order, and constructive social purpose. When we depart from these values, we do so at our peril. #Quote by J. William Fulbright
Law And Order quotes by Chuck Wendig
#23. The Empire is just a skin we wear, you see. A shell. It's not just about law and order. It's about total control. #Quote by Chuck Wendig
Law And Order quotes by Arthur Henderson
#24. To solve the problem of organizing world peace we must establish world law and order. #Quote by Arthur Henderson
Law And Order quotes by Tucker Max
#25. Mexico is a lawless place. I don't care what the UN says, or what the State Department travel advisories tell you. The fact is that Mexico, as a whole, is a narco-state run by powerful regional cartels, with a hollow and largely irrelevant central government that is nothing more than window-dressing to appease the international community. Freedom is for those who can afford it, law is for sale, and what is fair is determined by who is most powerful. That's the reality of Mexico. Cancun, Playa, Cabo, Puerto Vallarta- they are all much better than the interior of Mexico, but that is only because their survival depends on a steady flow of tourists with money to burn. To protect that, the government does a good job maintaining the appearance of western-style law and order through the direct threat of massive military intervention. Underneath it all, those places are not much different from the rest of Mexico. #Quote by Tucker Max
Law And Order quotes by Winston S. Churchill
#26. Bloodshed, gentlemen, no doubt is lamentable. I have seen some of it
more perhaps than many of those who talk about it with such levity. But there are worse things than bloodshed, even on an extreme scale ... The trampling down of law and order which, under the conditions of a civilised state, assure life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness
all this would be worse than bloodshed. #Quote by Winston S. Churchill
Law And Order quotes by Elliott Abrams
#27. Egypt needs law and order in Sinai to save the tourist industry in Sharm el-Sheik and prevent the area from becoming a base for terrorists that will target Egypt itself, as well as Jordan and Israel. #Quote by Elliott Abrams
Law And Order quotes by Ken Follett
#28. When you were trying to enforce law and order, it was difficult to explain that the rules did not actually apply to you personally. #Quote by Ken Follett
Law And Order quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#29. Above the policies, above the law, above the government, above the constitution, there is a higher principle, that is the principle of individual integrity, without which no matter how much policies and laws we create, we cannot ensure health, safety and sanity in the society. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Law And Order quotes by Thomas McGuane
#30. Napoleon said that if it weren't for religion the poor would kill the rich. This may be all you needed to know about any human community. The churches were the real police stations, the real keepers of law and order. #Quote by Thomas McGuane
Law And Order quotes by Emile Zola
#31. They were all listening to him with the curiosity and, if the truth were known, the utter indifference of practical people who had lost their fear of his God of wrath and chastisement. Why be frightened and deferential and seek pardon when the idea of the devil now merely made them laugh and they no longer believed in an avenging Lord who sent the wind and the hail and the thunder? It was just a waste of time; it was much more sensible to keep your respect for the forces of law and order: they were stronger. #Quote by Emile Zola
Law And Order quotes by Jodi Picoult
#32. A robber? In the trash bins? Honestly, Wes. This is Salem Falls, not the set of Law and Order. #Quote by Jodi Picoult
Law And Order quotes by Idi Amin
#33. In any country there must be people who have to die. They are the sacrifices any nation has to make to achieve law and order. #Quote by Idi Amin
Law And Order quotes by Ronald Reagan
#34. You and I are told increasingly that we have to choose between a left or a right. There is only an up or down: up to man's age-old dream
the ultimate in individual freedom consistent with law and order
or down to the ant heap of totalitarianism. And regardless of their sincerity, their humanitarian motives, those who would trade our freedom for security have embarked on this downward course. #Quote by Ronald Reagan
Law And Order quotes by Michelle Alexander
#35. Racial attitudes - not crime rates or likelihood of victimization - are an important determinant of white support for 'get tough on crime' and antiwelfare measures. #Quote by Michelle Alexander
Law And Order quotes by Herbert Marcuse
#36. In [Aristotle's] formal logic, thought is organized in a manner very different from that of the Platonic dialogue. In this formal logic, thought is indifferent toward its objects. Whether they are mental or physical, whether they pertain to society or to nature, they become subject to the same general laws of organization, calculation, and conclusion but they do so as fungible signs or symbols, in abstraction from their particular "substance." This general quality (quantitative quality) is the precondition of law and order in logic as well as in society the price of universal control. #Quote by Herbert Marcuse
Law And Order quotes by Sue Grafton
#37. Law and order, punishment and fair play, are all on a continuum where there are far more gray stretches than there are black and white. #Quote by Sue Grafton
Law And Order quotes by Amy Poehler
#38. I don't watch a lot of comedy. For relaxation and escape, I watch shows about how people survive bear attacks. Or old episodes of 'Law and Order,' the Benjamin Bratt/Jerry Orbach era. #Quote by Amy Poehler
Law And Order quotes by Spencer Grammer
#39. I think Mariska Hargitay on 'Law and Order: SVU' is a really good example of a female lead I'd like to emulate. #Quote by Spencer Grammer
Law And Order quotes by Chris Hayes
#40. Part of the genius of the rhetoric of law and order is that as a principle (rather than a practice), it can be sold as the ultimate call for equality: We all deserve the law. We all deserve order. All lives matter. #Quote by Chris Hayes
Law And Order quotes by Kenneth Patchen
#41. Law and order embrace on hate's border. #Quote by Kenneth Patchen
Law And Order quotes by Pierre Trudeau
#42. There are a lot of bleeding hearts around who just dont like to see people with helmets and guns. All I can say is go and bleed It is more important to keep law and order in society than to be worried about weak-kneed people Society must take every means at its disposal to defend itself against the emergence of a parallel power which defies the elected power. #Quote by Pierre Trudeau
Law And Order quotes by Hank Bracker
#43. Freed slaves returned to Africa settled in a section of what was known as the "Pepper Coast" and on July 26, 1847, issued a Declaration of Independence and established a constitution based on the political principles denoted in the United States Constitution. In doing so they established the independent Republic of Liberia. Law and Order was something the ruling class of Liberians prided themselves on. The Americo Liberians, as they called themselves, were uber-Conservatives and had a glorified picture of what the American government was like. As Conservatives they saw themselves living a privileged lifestyle, sustained by their faith in God and the blessings that had been bestowed upon them by this deity. Amongst themselves there was much talk about the subjects of freedom, liberty, democracy and independence. They felt that these idealisms were deserved because of their exceptionalism. Taking a page from the concept of American exceptionalism, they fantasied of their very own Liberian exceptionalism, completely forgetting the indigenous natives living among them. Whereas the Americo Liberians lived an affluent lifestyle reflecting the antebellum era in the Southern tier of the United States, the local blacks, for the greatest part lived in squalor. In 1980, a violent military coup shattered the way of life in Liberia. Led by army Master Sergeant Samuel Doe, the country's ruling group of Americo-Liberians were brutally overthrown and frequently executed. Doe's term as Presid #Quote by Hank Bracker
Law And Order quotes by Chuck Klosterman
#44. I also need to prepare myself for the inevitability of utter boredom: Very often, single people don't do shit. They do nothing, all night long. They sit in a recliner and watch TV. I've probably watched more television than anyone you've ever met, and I don't even own one. Terrible shows, good shows, Golf tournaments in Cancun. C-SPAN. Hours of Oprah. Law and Order. Lonely people love Law and Order, for whatever reason. They prefer the straight narratives. p60 #Quote by Chuck Klosterman
Law And Order quotes by Milan Kundera
#45. A dachshund came out of the bushes. Ruzena's father extended his pole toward him, but the dog alertly evaded it and ran over to the boy, who lifted him up and hugged him. Other old men rushed over to help Ruzena's father and tear the dachshund out of the boy's arms. The boy was crying, shouting, and grappling with them so that the old men had to twist his arms and put a hand over his mouth because his cries were attracting too much attention from the passersby, who were turning to look but not daring to intervene. [...] Jakub was leading the dog by the collar toward the hotel steps when one of the old men shouted: "Release that dog at once!"
And the other old man: "In the name of the law!"
Jakub pretended not to notice the old men and kept going, but behind him a pole slowly descended alongside his body and the wire loop wavered clumsily over the boxer's head.
Jakub grabbed the end of the pole and brusquely pushed it aside.
A third old man ran up and shouted: "Its an attack on law and order! I'm going to call the police!"
And the high-pitched voice of another old man complained: "He ran on the grass! He ran in the playground, where it's prohibited! He pissed in the kids' sandbox! Do you like dogs more than children?"
The boxer scampered around the room curiously, unaware that he had just escaped danger. Jakub stretched out on the daybed, wondering what to do with him. He liked the lively, good-natured dog. The insouciance with which, in a f #Quote by Milan Kundera
Law And Order quotes by Ramsey Clark
#46. A great many people in this country are worried about law-and-order. And a great many people are worried about justice. But one thing is certain; you cannot have either until you have both. #Quote by Ramsey Clark
Law And Order quotes by Kristian Williams
#47. Police activism, especially in the guise of union activity, remains somewhat perplexing. The historical development is clear enough, but politically it is troublesome - especially for the left. The whole issue presents a nest of paradoxes: the police have unionized and gone on strike - but continue in their role as strikebreakers. They have pitted themselves against their bosses and the government, but represent a threat to democracy rather than an expression of it. They have resisted authority for the sake of authoritarian aims, have broken laws in the name of law and order, and have demanded rights that they consistently deny to others. (...)

Police associations thus developed in relative isolation from the rest of the labor movement, while building close ties with the command hierarchy within the departments. This fact points to two related reasons why police unions are not legitimate labor unions. First, as is discussed above, the police are clearly part of the managerial machinery of capitalism. Their status as "workers" is therefore problematic. Second, the agendas of police unions mostly reflect the interests of the institution (the police department) rather than those of the working class. #Quote by Kristian Williams
Law And Order quotes by Lee Child
#48. Law and order are everywhere the law and order which protect the established hierarchy. #Quote by Lee Child
Law And Order quotes by James T. Walsh
#49. Our soldiers have done a valiant effort in fighting terrorism and bringing a semblance of law and order to the chaos in the region and it would be shortsighted to lay out a specific timetable to bring U.S. troops home prematurely before their mission is accomplished. #Quote by James T. Walsh
Law And Order quotes by Kamisese Mara
#50. Even institutions of State, such as the judiciary, were seriously weakened, to the extent that the citizenry justifiably feared a breakdown in law and order. The business community was hit by a slump in sales and confidence, leading to reduced earnings and loss of jobs. #Quote by Kamisese Mara
Law And Order quotes by Albert Camus
#51. The religion of reason quite naturally establishes the Republic of law and order. The general will is
expressed in laws codified by its representatives. "The people make the revolution, the legislator makes
the Republic." "Immortal, impassive" institutions, "sheltered from the temerity of man," will govern in
their turn the lives of all men by universal accord and without possibility of contradiction since by
obeying the laws all will only be obeying themselves #Quote by Albert Camus
Law And Order quotes by Fannie Lou Hamer
#52. Black people know what white people mean when they say "law and order". #Quote by Fannie Lou Hamer
Law And Order quotes by Vladimir Putin
#53. We need to use the United Nations Security Council and believe that preserving law and order in today's complex and turbulent world is one of the few ways to keep international relations from sliding into chaos. The law is still the law, and we must follow it whether we like it or not. #Quote by Vladimir Putin
Law And Order quotes by Katherine Frank
#54. Thus, both Mountbatten and Nehru stipulated that the ultimate fate of Kashmir should be settled 'by reference to the people', and on 2 November Nehru broadcast on All India Radio that 'we are prepared when peace and law and order have been established to have a referendum'. #Quote by Katherine Frank
Law And Order quotes by Chris Noth
#55. By my third year of Law and Order, I was climbing the walls. But you don't leave a hit show, especially when you have a five-year contract. #Quote by Chris Noth
Law And Order quotes by Eva Cox
#56. Trust is essential for our social wellbeing. Without trusting the good will of others we retreat into bureaucracy, rules and demands for more law and order. Trust is based on positive experiences with other people an it grows with use. We need to trust that others are going be basically reasonable beings. #Quote by Eva Cox
Law And Order quotes by Walker Percy
#57. At this moment the President is beginning to speak in New Orleans and the Vice-President is mounting the platform at NASA a few miles away. Both are making a plea for unity. The President, who is an integrationist Mormon married to a liberated Catholic, will appeal to Leftists to respect law and order. The Vice-President, a Southern Baptist Knothead married to a conservative Unitarian, is asking Knotheads for tolerance and understanding, etcetera. The poor U.S.A.! Even #Quote by Walker Percy
Law And Order quotes by Ron Brackin
#58. Laws without enforced consequences are merely suggestions. #Quote by Ron Brackin
Law And Order quotes by Richard A. Falk
#59. This kind of totalization of security consciousness [after tragedy of 9/11] has the effect within classrooms (and beyond) of constraining the imagination and reinforcing attitudes that privilege the forces of law and order as against the crosscurrents of freedom and dissent. #Quote by Richard A. Falk
Law And Order quotes by F. Sionil Jose
#60. Colonialism subdues in many dulcet guises. It conquered under the pretext of spreading Christianity, civilization, law and order, to make the world safe for democracy. #Quote by F. Sionil Jose
Law And Order quotes by Peter Gelderloos
#61. We must realistically accept that revolution is a social war, not because we like war, but because we recognize that the status quo is a low-intensity war and challenging the state results in an intensification of that warfare. We must also accept that revolution necessitates interpersonal conflict because certain classes of people are employed to defend the centralizing institutions we must destroy. People who continue to dehumanize themselves as agents of law and order must be defeated by whatever means necessary until they can no longer prevent people's autonomous realization of their needs. #Quote by Peter Gelderloos
Law And Order quotes by Albert Camus
#62. From the moment that man believes neither in God nor in immortal life, he becomes 'responsible for everything alive, for everything that, born of suffering, is condemned to suffer from life.' It is he, and he alone, who must discover law and order. Then the time of exile begins, the endless search for justification, the aimless nostalgia, 'the most painful, the most heartbreaking question, that of the heart which asks itself: where can I feel at home? #Quote by Albert Camus
Law And Order quotes by Louis D. Brandeis
#63. The world presents enough problems if you believe it to be a world of law and order; do not add to them by believing it to be a world of miracles. #Quote by Louis D. Brandeis
Law And Order quotes by Frank Gifford
#64. I was the law and order. #Quote by Frank Gifford
Law And Order quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#65. The world doesn't need more bent police who pretend to uphold the law in front of an investigation, it needs more just police who practice justice even when nobody is looking. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Law And Order quotes by Kathleen Sears

Law And Order quotes by Adam Clayton
#67. A man's respect for law and order exists in precise relationship to the size of his paycheck. #Quote by Adam Clayton
Law And Order quotes by Steven Pinker
#68. Positive legacy of the 1960s was the revolutions in civil rights, women's rights, children's rights, and gay rights, which began to consolidate power in the 1990s as the baby boomers became the establishment. Their targeting of rape, battering, hate crimes, gay-bashing, and child abuse reframed law-and-order from a reactionary cause to a progressive one, and their efforts to make the home, workplace, schools, and streets safer for vulnerable groups (as in the feminist "Take Back the Night" protests) made these environments safer for everyone. #Quote by Steven Pinker
Law And Order quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#69. We turn our attention to the government and we whine about the incompetence of the police, we also complain about the breakdown in law and order. Yet, we forget that we actually had a role to play in the consequences we are reaping. #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Law And Order quotes by Chuck Wendig
#70. The Empire is a thug, a bully. It's no better than Surat Nuat, or Black Sun, or the syndicate of Hutts. The Empire pretends it's about law and order, but at the end of the day, it's about dressing up oppression in the costume of justice. #Quote by Chuck Wendig
Law And Order quotes by William O. Douglas
#71. Big Brother in the form of an increasingly powerful government and in an increasingly powerful private sector will pile the records high with reasons why privacy should give way to national security, to law and order [ ... ] and the like. #Quote by William O. Douglas
Law And Order quotes by Toba Beta
#72. Current science and technology have unlocked all mysteries.
We make sense of it in a gradual process under law and order. #Quote by Toba Beta
Law And Order quotes by Heinrich Boll
#73. The Nazi period could have happened only in Germany because the German education of obedience to any law and order was the main problem. #Quote by Heinrich Boll
Law And Order quotes by Erle Stanley Gardner
#74. I have never stuck up for any criminal. I have merely asked for the orderly administration of an impartial justice ... Due legal process is my own safeguard against being convicted unjustly. To my mind, that's government. That's law and order. #Quote by Erle Stanley Gardner
Law And Order quotes by B.R. Ambedkar
#75. Law and order are the medicine of the politic body and when the politic body gets sick, medicine must be administered. #Quote by B.R. Ambedkar
Law And Order quotes by Rousas John Rushdoony
#76. But, while a man can be restrained by strict law and order, he cannot be changed by law; he cannot be saved by law. Man can only be saved by the grace of God through Jesus Christ. #Quote by Rousas John Rushdoony
Law And Order quotes by Mumia Abu-Jamal
#77. Do you see law and order? There is nothing but disorder, and instead of law there is the illusion of security. It is an illusion because it is built on a long history of injustices: racism, criminality, and the genocide of millions. Many people say it is insane to resist the system, but actually, it is insane not to. #Quote by Mumia Abu-Jamal
Law And Order quotes by Molly Harper
#78. Can we get a whiteboard,like on Law and Order?" Andrea asked.
Dick nodded. "I was thinking official 'Keep Jane from Being Murdered Task Force' T-shirts. #Quote by Molly Harper
Law And Order quotes by Joel Henry Hildebrand
#79. Anyone who thinks we can continue to have world wars but make them nice polite affairs by outlawing this weapon or that should meditate upon the outlawing of the cross-bow by Papal authority. Setting up the machinery for international law and order must surely precede disarmament. The Wild West did not abandon its shooting irons till after sheriffs and courts were established. #Quote by Joel Henry Hildebrand
Law And Order quotes by Muhammad Ali Jinnah
#80. The first duty of a government is to maintain law and order so that the life, property, and religious beliefs of its subjects are fully protected by the State. #Quote by Muhammad Ali Jinnah
Law And Order quotes by Wernher Von Braun
#81. For me, the idea of a creation is not conceivable without invoking the necessity of design. One cannot be exposed to the law and order of the universe without concluding that there must be design and purpose behind it all. #Quote by Wernher Von Braun
Law And Order quotes by Kelley Armstrong
#82. I'd seen more cops in the last few days than on a weekend LAW and ORDER marathon - Paigne Winterbourne #Quote by Kelley Armstrong
Law And Order quotes by John Lindsay
#83. Those who suppress freedom always do so in the name of law and order. #Quote by John Lindsay
Law And Order quotes by Sterling W. Sill
#84. The most satisfying kind of peace is Christ's peace. That is a peace in which the cause of strife has been removed from us. Many people try to make their peace co-exist with their sins; however, it is pretty difficult to get peace by compact or negotiation or because of some dictated decree without having peace in ourselves. When some of the more influential European nations objected to Hitler's program for enslaving the weaker nations of Europe, he shouted back to them angrily, "Let us alone, we want peace." That is, he wanted peace while he enslaved the weaker nations without interference from anyone else. This is the kind of peace criminals want, the kind of peace that will enable them to carry out their own ungodly programs of crime unhampered by law and order.

All true peace must be based on righteousness. #Quote by Sterling W. Sill
Law And Order quotes by Albert Einstein
#85. You believe in a God who plays dice, I in complete law and order. #Quote by Albert Einstein
Law And Order quotes by Jonathan Haidt
#86. Let's imagine that 95 percent of the food on Earth magically disappears tonight, guaranteeing that almost all of us will starve to death within two months. Law and order collapse. Chaos and mayhem ensue. Who among us will still be alive a year from now? Will it be the biggest, strongest, and most violent individuals in each town? Or will it be the people who manage to work together in groups to monopolize, hide, and share the remaining food supplies among themselves? #Quote by Jonathan Haidt
Law And Order quotes by Laozi
#87. The more laws and orders are multiplied, the more theft and violence increase. #Quote by Laozi
Law And Order quotes by Warren Rudman
#88. The two things that could have been better is number one, to get major military force into the community almost immediately to make sure that there was law and order. Number two, we had enough helicopters to airlift food into the centers of population and those places. #Quote by Warren Rudman
Law And Order quotes by Django Wexler
#89. Liberators are always more popular than conquerors. And a return to law and order is more welcome once people have gotten a taste for what life is like without it. #Quote by Django Wexler
Law And Order quotes by Rod Serling
#90. In his grave, we praise him for his decency - but when he walked amongst us, we responded with no decency of our own.
When he suggested that all men should have a place in the sun - we put a special sanctity on the right of ownership and the privilege of prejudice by maintaining that to deny homes to Negroes was a democratic right.
Now we acknowledge his compassion - but we exercised no compassion of our own. When he asked us to understand that men take to the streets out of anguish and hopelessness and a vision of that dream dying, we bought guns and speculated about roving agitators and subversive conspiracies and demanded law and order.
We felt anger at the effects, but did little to acknowledge the causes. We extol all the virtues of the man - but we chose not to call them virtues before his death.
And now, belatedly, we talk of this man's worth - but the judgement comes late in the day as part of a eulogy when it should have been made a matter of record while he existed as a living force. If we are to lend credence to our mourning, there are acknowledgements that must be made now, albeit belatedly. We must act on the altogether proper assumption that Martin Luther King asked for nothing but that which was his due... He asked only for equality, and it is that which we denied him.

Law And Order quotes by Barbara Brown Taylor
#91. Jesus was not killed by atheism and anarchy. He was brought down by law and order allied with religion, which is always a deadly mix. Beware those who claim to know the mind of God and who are prepared to use force, if necessary, to make others conform. Beware those who cannot tell God's will from their own. Temple police are always a bad sign. When chaplains start wearing guns and hanging out at the sheriff's office, watch out. Someone is about to have no king but Caesar #Quote by Barbara Brown Taylor
Law And Order quotes by A.E. Samaan
#92. Funny, I don't particularly care for either "laws" or "order". Liberty is messy. Freedom yields imperfect results. #Quote by A.E. Samaan
Law And Order quotes by Shamini Flint
#93. Kuala Lumpur had a certain something… There was a sense of freedom perhaps, of anarchy even, that Singapore so sorely lacked. Perhaps it was the lack of deference to authority, the physical space, the ability to take a step back and enjoy a moment of quite that lent Kuala Lumpur its atmosphere. Singaporeans were always adding to the list of reasons each one kept to hand, in case they met a Malaysian, of why it was so much better on the island than the peninsula. They ranged from law and order to cleanliness, from clean government to good schools, and always ended on the strength of the Singaporean economy. But in the end, the Malaysian would nod as if to agree to the points made – and then shrug to indicate that they probably wouldn't trade passports, not really. And if pressed for a reason they would fall back on that old chestnut which somehow seemed to capture everything that was wrong about Singapore – but your government bans chewing gum. The nanny state and the police state all rolled into one. #Quote by Shamini Flint
Law And Order quotes by Martin Luther King, Jr.
#94. Law and order exist for the purpose of establishing justice. #Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr.
Law And Order quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#95. Justice and humanity are not different, they are one and the same thing - where there is justice, there is humanity - where there is no humanity, there is no justice. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Law And Order quotes by Michelle Alexander
#96. The shift to a general attitude of 'toughness' toward problems associated with communities of color began in the 1960s, when the gains and goals of the Civil Rights movement began to require real sacrifices on the part of white Americans, and conservative politicians found they could mobilize white racial resentment by vowing to crack down on crime. #Quote by Michelle Alexander
Law And Order quotes by Ransom Stoddard
#97. Education is the basis of law and order. #Quote by Ransom Stoddard
Law And Order quotes by Gustav Stolper
#98. Before 1914, in the minds of the Western World governments had to see to it that law and order were preserved and that the security of their nations was protected. Beyond that they were not supposed to reach. When in 1918 mankind slowly emerged from the nightmare of the war, governments all over the world were interfering in all manner of ways in the life of their citizens, were assuming new tasks, forging new instruments, amassing new powers, shouldering new responsibilities. #Quote by Gustav Stolper
Law And Order quotes by Albert Einstein
#99. Our defense is not in our armaments, nor in science, nor in going underground. Our defense is in law and order. #Quote by Albert Einstein
Law And Order quotes by Gabriel Chevallier
#100. He was regarded merely as an eccentric employee of indifferent merit, and his post of deputy chief clerk was the highest he would ever reach. Well aware of this, he made it a rule never to show any zeal, except in special circumstances. It is true that in these cases his zeal was clothed with a spirit of vengeance directed against the whole human race - this being his second favourite occupation. Petitbidois would have liked to hold the reins of power. This being beyond his sphere, he utilized the small driblets of authority which came his way for the purpose of casting ridicule upon established law and order, by making it act as a sort of unintelligent and, if possible, malicious Providence. 'The world is an idiot place anyway,' he would say, 'so why worry? Life is just a lottery. Let us leave the decision to chance. #Quote by Gabriel Chevallier
Law And Order quotes by Liam Neeson
#101. I was always attracted to the type of cinema hero as an adolescent growing up in Ireland. Robert Mitchum springs to mind. Later on, it was Steve McQueen to a certain extent and Charles Bronson. They're these types of grizzled characters who had one foot on the side of law and order and the other foot in the bad guy's camp. #Quote by Liam Neeson
Law And Order quotes by Adolf Hitler
#102. Thousands of Americans, Englishmen and Frenchmen have visited Germany during the months after the national revolution and were able to testify as eye-witnesses that there is no country in the world where law and order are better maintained than in present-day Germany. That there is no country in the world where person and property are held in better respect than in our own, but that there is perhaps also no country in the word where a more rigorous fight is put up against those who believe that they are free to let loose their lower instincts to the detriment of their fellow-beings. #Quote by Adolf Hitler
Law And Order quotes by Jim Butcher
#103. Isana stared at Gaius for a moment. Then she said, "How can you live with yourself?"

The First Lord stared at her for a moment, his eyes cold. Then he spoke in a very quiet, precise, measured voice. "I look out my window each day. I look out my window at people who live and breathe. At people who have not been devoured by civil war. At people who have not been ravaged by disease. At people who have not starved to death, who have not been hacked apart by enemies of humanity, at people who are free to lie and steal and plot and complain and accuse and behave in all manner of repugnant ways because the Realm stands. Because law and order stands. Because something other than simple violence shapes the course of their lives. And I look, wife of my son, mother of my heir, at a very few decent people who have had the luxury of living their lives without being called upon to make hideous decisions I would not wish upon my worst enemies, and who consequently find such matters morally appalling when they consider them--because they have not had to be the ones who dealt with them." He took a short, hard swallow of wine. "Feh. Aquitaine thinks me his enemy. The fool. If I truly hated him, I'd give him the Crown. #Quote by Jim Butcher
Law And Order quotes by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
#104. The law is the anchor of our feelings. If the law holds our feelings well, it directs our feelings well. If however, the laws fails to hold our feelings well, our feelings become free enough for us to do what we feel freely #Quote by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
Law And Order quotes by Colin Jordan
#105. The masses will not vote for their own upliftment in a higher order of society. This has to be accomplished without their support and request, despite them and indeed against them. It is absurd to pivot your whole project, as does a conventional party, on the submission of change to the decision of those who so need to be changed. You might as well make the case for law and order conditional on the approval of the criminals. #Quote by Colin Jordan
Law And Order quotes by Vincent D'Onofrio
#106. Our show is different, because it's not about law and order, it's about psychology, the intent of somebody. #Quote by Vincent D'Onofrio
Law And Order quotes by Carl Sagan
#107. There are many other (besides testosterone) behaviour-eliciting hormones fundamental for humen well-being, including estrogen and progesterone in females. The fact that complex behavioural patterns can be triggered by a tiny concentration of moleculas coursing through the bloodstream, and that different animals of the same species generate different amounts of these hormones, is something worth thinking about when it's time to judge such matters as free will, individual responsibility, and law and order. #Quote by Carl Sagan
Law And Order quotes by Glen Cook
#108. Relway mused, "Now that it's happened I'm not so sure I'm happy with the outcome. Spared their racial theories The Call would've been good for TunFaire." He would appreciate their interest in law and order and proper behavior. "Here's a challenge you still need to meet. Glory Mooncalled. He's weak now but he's still out there somewhere. If you don't get him now he'll try to put something back together someday. He can't help himself." "It's still great day for TunFaire, Garrett. One of pure triumph." I don't know if he meant that or was being sarcastic. You never quite know anything with Relway. And he wants it that way. "I liked the way you put it, Garrett. Faded steel heat." I'd mentioned that to him the night he'd discovered the tanks in the old Lamp brewery. "But the war goes on." "The war never ends. Tell you what. Send me a note when you do decide to roast that pigeon. I've got dibs on a drumstick. #Quote by Glen Cook
Law And Order quotes by Thane Rosenbaum
#109. Since lawyers are thinkers and not feelers, and their moral development is locked into the rigidity of maintaining law and order, they often come across as impersonal, insensitive, amoral, and not particularly human to the clients they serve. #Quote by Thane Rosenbaum
Law And Order quotes by William, Saroyan
#110. Love doesn't have to be perfect. Even perfect, it is still the best thing there is, for the simple reason that it is the most common and constant truth of all, of all life, all law and order, the very thing which holds everything together, which permits everything to move along in time and be its wonderful or ordinary self. #Quote by William, Saroyan
Law And Order quotes by Adolf Hitler
#111. The streets of our country are in turmoil. The universities are filled with students rebelling and rioting. Communists are seeking to destroy our country. Russia is threatening us with her might, and the Republic is in danger. Yes - danger from within and without. We need law and order! Without it our nation cannot survive. #Quote by Adolf Hitler
Law And Order quotes by Henrik Ibsen
#112. Oh, law and order! I often think it is that that is at the bottom of all the misery in the world. #Quote by Henrik Ibsen
Law And Order quotes by Adolf Hitler
#113. Without law and order our nation cannot survive. #Quote by Adolf Hitler
Law And Order quotes by Jean Raspail
#114. Day by day, month by month, doubt by doubt, law and order became fascism; education, constraint; work, alienation; revolution, mere sport; leisure, a privilege of class; marijuana, a harmless weed; family, a stifling hothouse; affluence, oppression; success, a social disease; sex, an innocent pastime; youth, a permanent tribunal; maturity, the new senility; discipline, an attack on personality; Christianity... and the West... and white skin... #Quote by Jean Raspail
Law And Order quotes by Gore Vidal
#115. The period of Prohibition - called the noble experiment - brought on the greatest breakdown of law and order the United States has known until today. I think there is a lesson here. Do not regulate the private morals of people. Do not tell them what they can take or not take. Because if you do, they will become angry and antisocial and they will get what they want from criminals who are able to work in perfect freedom because they have paid off the police. #Quote by Gore Vidal
Law And Order quotes by Kresley Cole
#116. She gazed around with a bored air. This feels just like Law and Order. But shouldn't you lawyer up before I throw the book at you? No? So what's in the IV bag? #Quote by Kresley Cole
Law And Order quotes by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
#117. feeling free never breaks the law but, you shall never be free when you break the law whilst feeling free! #Quote by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
Law And Order quotes by Ida B. Wells
#118. The South is brutalized to a degree not realized by its own inhabitants, and the very foundation of government, law and order, are imperilled. #Quote by Ida B. Wells
Law And Order quotes by Lao-Tzu
#119. The more laws and order are made prominent, the more thieves and robbers there will be. #Quote by Lao-Tzu
Law And Order quotes by Angela Y. Davis
#120. The conservative, who does not dispute the validity of revolutions deeply buried in history, invokes visions of impending anarchy in order to legitimize his demand for absolute obedience. Law and order, with the major emphasis on order, is his watchword. The liberal articulates his sensitiveness to certain of society's intolerable details, but will almost never prescribe methods of resistance which exceed the limits of legality - redress through electoral channels is the liberal's panacea. #Quote by Angela Y. Davis
Law And Order quotes by George Orwell
#121. The Ministry of Truth, which concerned itself with news, entertainment, education, and the fine arts. The Ministry of Peace, which concerned itself with war. The Ministry of Love, which maintained law and order. And the Ministry of Plenty, which was responsible for economic affairs. #Quote by George Orwell
Law And Order quotes by Aung San Suu Kyi
#122. There is no intrinsic virtue to law and order unless "law" is equated with justice and "order" with the discipline of a people satisfied that justice has been done. #Quote by Aung San Suu Kyi
Law And Order quotes by Chris Noth
#123. 'Law and Order' is completely story-driven and completely characterless, really. If you do that format for five years and you're an actor, you're bound to get bored. It wears on you. And it was really wearing on me. #Quote by Chris Noth
Law And Order quotes by Gene Sharp
#124. Violence by the defenders will be used by the putschists to justify overwhelming repression which they want to use anyhow.

It will be used to CLAIM that the putschists are saving the country from ‪terrorism or ‪#civil war‬, and are preserving "‪law‬ and ‪order‬ #Quote by Gene Sharp
Law And Order quotes by Robert Coover
#125. People, fearing their own extinction, are willing to accept and perpetuate hand-me-down answers to the meaning of life and death; and, fearing a weakening of the tribal structures that sustain them, reinforce with their tales the conventional notions of justice, freedom, law and order, nature, family, etc. The writer, lone rider, has the power, if not always the skills, wisdom, or desire, to disturb this false contentment. #Quote by Robert Coover
Law And Order quotes by Danny Pino
#126. The centerpiece of 'Law and Order' is the crime, and it starts with the writing. There's a beginning, a middle and an end. It allows the audience to watch any given episode and can drop right in and not feel lost. I think the stark, raw structure has a lot to do with its longevity. #Quote by Danny Pino
Law And Order quotes by Stephen King
#127. The next bus pole was halfway up the block. Three black women, two white women, and a Hispanic man were standing by the post, a racial mixture so balanced it looked like a casting call for Law and Order SVU. #Quote by Stephen King
Law And Order quotes by Donald Trump
#128. We will be a country of generosity and warmth. But we will also be a country of law and order. #Quote by Donald Trump
Law And Order quotes by Mili Avital
#129. In Israel, I think I have the image of an 'Ashkenazi woman' as a stereotype. Someone once told me that I look like a deodorant commercial. But my appearance is misleading; I can be emotionally aggressive, too, and in 'Law and Order,' I once played a murderer. I see no limitations. I see both my toughness and the softness. #Quote by Mili Avital
Law And Order quotes by Dominique DuBois Gilliard
#130. While many have depicted the War on Drugs as a Republican initiative, the drug war was a bipartisan effort. This rhetoric of law and
order deployed by politicians won elections nationwide, from races for local council seats to the presidency. #Quote by Dominique DuBois Gilliard
Law And Order quotes by Herbert Marcuse
#131. Every sound reason is on the side of law and order in their insistence that the eternity of joy be reserved for the hereafter, and in their endeavor to subordinate the struggle against death and disease to the never-ceasing requirements of national and international security. #Quote by Herbert Marcuse
Law And Order quotes by Gina Damico
#132. Lex froze. "What boy?"
"That boy I saw you with, before you came up to ring the bell. The windows of this house are fully functional, you know."
Lex didn't even bother with a lie this time. "His name is Driggs. He's my partner."
"Ah, partner. How very Law and Order."
"Shut up, that's just how it works."
"I see. And have you two had a romp in the hay yet, or would that upset Mr. Frizzle the rooster? #Quote by Gina Damico
Law And Order quotes by Mimi Kennedy
#133. I'm old enough to remember when 'Law and Order' was once the Republican campaign slogan. #Quote by Mimi Kennedy
Law And Order quotes by Sebastian Bach
#134. I went to audition for an episode of 'Law and Order,' and they didn't understand why I was talking so fast, and I was like, 'No, you don't understand. I was on a show called the 'Gilmore Girls.' We had to say everything like that.' #Quote by Sebastian Bach
Law And Order quotes by Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo
#135. As I have shown, I will defend democracy with arms when it is threatened by violence; with firmness when it is weakened by division; with law and order when it is subverted by anarchy; and always, I will try to sustain it by wise policies of economic progress so that a democracy means not just an empty liberty, but a full life for all. #Quote by Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo
Law And Order quotes by Steven Erikson
#136. Law enforcement loses its moral compass when what is asked of it undermines its ethical base. When in service to corruption - and when that corruption is thoroughly even if only unconsciously perceived - despair and nihilism follows. The good is deemed ineffectual. The bad is set upon a movable scale of permissibility, one that inevitably climbs to ever greater extremes. In this context, the police become tribal and will act first and foremost in defense of itself. Further indoctrination reinforces this escalation. In effect, the law rises above the law, and the sudden absence of restraint is an invitation to unchecked brutality. #Quote by Steven Erikson
Law And Order quotes by Mark M. Bello
#137. So, regardless of the outcome, Bialy will be pissing off some segment of his voters. If a grand jury fails to indict or indicts Jones and Bialy fails to secure his conviction; civil rights protests are likely in an already divided Wayne County. If Bialy secures a conviction, he becomes anti-cop or anti-law and order. It's a classic lose-lose situation. #Quote by Mark M. Bello
Law And Order quotes by Adolf Hitler
#138. For the greatest revolutionary changes on this earth would not have been thinkable if their motive force, instead of fanatical, yes, hysterical passion, had been merely the bourgeois virtues of law and order. #Quote by Adolf Hitler
Law And Order quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#139. Laws, policies and amendments are not going to ensure justice in the human society, unless the humans - each human - all humans, uphold justice with utmost courage, care and conscience in their daily walks of life. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Law And Order quotes by Camille Paglia
#140. Social justice and compassion are compatible with an intelligent respect for private enterprise and law and order. #Quote by Camille Paglia
Law And Order quotes by Ayn Rand
#141. While, politically, a mixed economy preserves the semblance of an organized society with a semblance of law and order, economically it is the equivalent of the chaos that had ruled China for centuries: a chaos of robber gangs looting-and draining-the productive elements of the country. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Law And Order quotes by John Cowper Powys
#142. though books, as Milton says, may be the embalming of mighty spirits, they are also the resurrection of rebellious, reactionary, fantastical, and wicked spirits! in books dwell all the demons and all the angels of the human mind. it is for this reason that a a bookshop -- especially a second-hand bookshop / antiquarian - is an arsenal of explosives, an armory of revolutions, an opium den of reaction.

and just because books are the repository of all the redemptions and damnations, all the sanities and insanities, of the divine anarchy of the soul, they are still, as they have alwasys been, an object of suspicion to every kind of ruling authority. in a second-hand bookshop are the horns of the altar where all the outlawed thoughts of humanity can take refuge! here, like depserate bandits, hide all the reckless progeny of our wild, dark, self-lacerating hearts. a bookshop is powder-magazine, a dynamite-shed, a drugstore of poisons, a bar of intoxicants, a den of opiates, an island of sirens.

of all the 'houses of ill fame' which a tyrant, a bureaucrat, a propagandist, a moralist, a champion of law and order, an advocate of keeping people ignorant for their own good, hurries past with averted eyes or threatens with this minions, a bookshop is the most flagrant.

Law And Order quotes by Jillian Dodd
#143. He smiles and pours us each a drink, then puts his glass up in the air. "Here's to my beautiful naked girl." "I'm not drinking to my nakedness." He runs his hand down my stomach. "Oh, but you should." "Dawson! Stop that! We need to order food. I'm starving." "Me too, but it's not my fault you're so damn sexy, and you make me want you. All the time. #Quote by Jillian Dodd
Law And Order quotes by Patricia Ireland
#144. When I started law school I was shocked to learn that our legal system traditionally had the man as the head and master of the family. As late as the '70s and '80s when we were fighting for the Equal Rights Amendment, states like Louisiana still had a head and master law. #Quote by Patricia Ireland
Law And Order quotes by Spike Lee
#145. Racism is when you have laws set up, systematically put in a way to keep people from advancing, to stop the advancement of a people. Black people have never had the power to enforce racism, and so this is something that white America is going to have to work out themselves. If they decide they want to stop it, curtail it, or to do the right thing ... then it will be done, but not until then. #Quote by Spike Lee
Law And Order quotes by Donald Verrilli Jr.
#146. Very quickly the lawyers in the Justice Department pulled together a set of recommendations about how we ought to defend the law as a constitutional matter. And it was the lawyers in the Justice Department who thought that it was important to include the tax power argument as part of it. #Quote by Donald Verrilli Jr.
Law And Order quotes by Dani Shapiro
#147. I do whatever is necessary in order to maintain the equanimity we all need to withstand the disappointment and rejection that are the lot of every writer, no matter where we are in our careers. #Quote by Dani Shapiro
Law And Order quotes by Gloria Steinem
#148. Law and justice are not always the same. When they aren't, destroying the law may be the first step toward changing it. #Quote by Gloria Steinem
Law And Order quotes by Abbi Glines
#149. I'll do whatever I have to in order to be worthy of her. She's everything I've ever wanted."

"Don't change for her. She made that mistake with me. She fell in love with you just the way you are. Just be you, Beau. Just be you."

She loved me. Hearing those words sent a shiver of pleasure over me. I'd finally won my girl.

"She had Mr. Perfect and she wanted me instead. Doesn't make any sense," I said, grinning over at Sawyer.

"There's no accounting for taste," he chuckled and elbowed me in the ribs. "Go get her, man. She's convinced she has to step out of our lives so we can fix our relationship. Her heart's breaking. I could see it in her eyes. She is ready to sacrifice her happiness in order to do what she thinks is best for you. Go put the girl out of her misery."

Step out of my life. Like hell.

I slapped Sawyer on the back and headed out to set her straight. But first I was going to feast on those full lips of hers that were all puckered up in a frown. #Quote by Abbi Glines
Law And Order quotes by Neal Stephenson
#150. It's when a society plunders its ability to look over the horizon and into the future in order to get short-term gain - sometimes illusory gain - that it begins a long slide nearly impossible to reverse. #Quote by Neal Stephenson
Law And Order quotes by Joseph Conrad
#151. And we all nodded at him: the man of finance, the man of accounts, the man of law, we all nodded at him over the polished table that like a still sheet of brown water reflected our faces, lined, wrinkled; our faces marked by toil, by deceptions, by success, by love; our weary eyes looking still, looking always, looking anxiously for something out of life, that while it is expected is already gone – has passed unseen, in a sigh, in a flash – together with the youth, with the strength, with the romance of illusions. #Quote by Joseph Conrad
Law And Order quotes by Frances Harper
#152. A government which can protect and defend its citizens from wrong and outrage and does not is vicious. A government which would do it and cannot is weak; and where human life is insecure through either weakness or viciousness in the administration of law, there must be a lack of justice and where this is wanting, nothing can make up the deficiency. #Quote by Frances Harper
Law And Order quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
#153. Holmes. "Why, it might be a description of Watson!" "It's true," said the inspector, with amusement. "It might be a description of Watson." "Well, I'm afraid I can't help you, Lestrade," said Holmes. "The fact is that I knew this fellow Milverton, that I considered him one of the most dangerous men in London, and that I think there are certain crimes which the law cannot touch, and which therefore, to some extent, justify private revenge. No, it's no use arguing. I have made up my mind. My sympathies are with the criminals rather than with the victim, and I will not handle this case." Holmes had not said one word to me about the tragedy which we had witnessed, but I observed all the morning that he was in his most thoughtful mood, and he gave me the impression, from his vacant eyes and his abstracted manner, of a man who #Quote by Arthur Conan Doyle
Law And Order quotes by Jonathan Daniel Gomez
#154. But there are no criminals here
Just people surviving against all odds
Multi and never ending circumstances
of racial repression
Class war accompanied
with post-traumatic stress
syndrome-like symptoms
Marshal law-like conditions
Magic trick tactics
transforming Brown and Black pearls into perils
with K-9's searching the perimeter
Face filled with hate
abra cadabra cop smiles
with a gun and a badge
The bullet is faster than the eye
Judges able to devour justice
with a single courtroom motion
not missing a crumb
Now you have your freedom
then you don't #Quote by Jonathan Daniel Gomez
Law And Order quotes by Wanda Sykes
#155. There are just so many more laws and rules that apply with marriage that do not come with domestic partnership and also to me it's the commitment. #Quote by Wanda Sykes
Law And Order quotes by Tracy Bilen
#156. He made my mom call and tell Maureen I wouldn't be in to see her anymore. He said therapy is a waste of money. He also told her to upgrade the cable service and to order him a subscription to Military History magazine. The he went and bought a new fishing pole for Matt, who is dead. #Quote by Tracy Bilen
Law And Order quotes by Sam Harris
#157. The U.S. Supreme Court has called free will a "universal and persistent" foundation for our system of law, distinct from "a deterministic view of human conduct that is inconsistent with the underlying precepts of our criminal justice system" (United States v. Grayson, 1978). #Quote by Sam Harris
Law And Order quotes by Mike Leigh
#158. Do you think that the amoeba ever dreamed that it would evolve into the frog? Of course it didn't. And when that first frog shimmied out of the water and employed its vocal chords in order to attract a mate or to retard a predator, do you think that that frog ever imagined that that incipient croak would evolve into all the languages of the world, into all the literature of the world? Of course it fucking didn't. And just as that froggy could never possibly have conceived of Shakespeare, so we can never possibly imagine our destiny #Quote by Mike Leigh

Law And Order quotes by Geert Wilders
#160. I do not believe in genetic causes; I am miles away from there. I believe rather that all people who embrace our [european] values, our laws and our constitution are full members of our society. #Quote by Geert Wilders
Law And Order quotes by Harold Bloom
#161. We are great fools. "He has spent his life in idleness," we say; "I have done nothing today." What, have you not lived? That is not only the most fundamental but the most illustrious of your occupations. . . . To compose our character is our duty, not to compose books, and to win, not battles and provinces, but order and tranquillity in our conduct. Our great and glorious masterpiece is to live appropriately. #Quote by Harold Bloom
Law And Order quotes by Chuck Wendig
#162. It always seemed to me that the hacker occupied the same niche as the American cowboy in your Wild West. Gunslingers at the edge of known civilization. Black hats, white hats. Some drawn into thievery, others taking the law into their own hands - justice both corporeal and social. #Quote by Chuck Wendig
Law And Order quotes by John Andreas Widtsoe
#163. We are aware that the order of God requires the exercise of humility, but not of servility of slaves; but a humility that can be associated with undoubted courage and unflinching integrity; at the same time there is no room for pride, self-sufficient pride, that rests solely upon its own capabilities, and refuses to look for the support and countenance of others.
MS 7:91 [MS is the Millenial Star] #Quote by John Andreas Widtsoe
Law And Order quotes by Frederic Bastiat
#164. Here I encounter the most popular fallacy of our times. It is not considered sufficient that the law should guarantee to every citizen the free and inoffensive use of his faculties for physical, intellectual and moral self-improvement. Instead, it is demanded that the law should directly extend welfare, education, and morality throughout the nation. This is the seductive lure of socialism. And I repeat: these two uses of the law are in direct contradiction to each other. #Quote by Frederic Bastiat
Law And Order quotes by Walter Kirn
#165. Cross the wrong state border with your gun, or wake up one morning to new legislation or a new presidential executive order, and suddenly you're the bad guy, not the good guy. No wonder some gun owners seem so touchy; they feel, at some level, like criminals in waiting. #Quote by Walter Kirn
Law And Order quotes by Terrance Robinson- Artist Educator Scholar Entrepreneur
#166. Progress is like wheels that never stop; they have to keep turning in order to remain relevant to a car and all of its mechanical parts. Stopping is not an option in real time but it is to those that envy progress and upward mobility. Progress never ends because it is infinite but it rebuilds and readjust (s) to take increment steps then massive steps if it is hindered.

Law And Order quotes by Ayn Rand
#167. He's paying the price and wondering for what sin and telling himself that he's been too selfish. In what act or thought of his has there ever been a self? What was his aim in life? Greatness
in other people's eyes. Fame, admiration, envy
all that which comes from others. Others dictated his convictions, which he did not hold, but he was satisfied that others believed he held them. Others were his motive power and his prime concern. He didn't want to be great, but to be thought great. He didn't want to build, but to be admired as a builder. He borrowed from others in order to make an impression on others. There's your actual selflessness. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Law And Order quotes by Benjamin Hoff
#168. When we learn to work with our own Inner Nature, and with the natural laws operating around us, we reach the level of Wu Wei. Then we work with the natural order of things and operate on the principle of minimal effort. Since the natural world follows that principle, it does not make mistakes. Mistakes are made–or imagined–by man, the creature with the overloaded Brain who separates himself from the supporting network of natural laws by interfering and trying too hard.

When you work with Wu Wei, you put the round peg in the round hole and the square peg in the square hole. No stress, no struggle. Egotistical Desire tries to force the round peg into the square hole and the square peg into the round hole. Cleverness tries to devise craftier ways of making pegs fit where they don't belong. Knowledge tries to figure out why round pegs fit into round holes, but not square holes. Wu Wei doesn't try. It doesn't think about it. It just does it. And when it does, it doesn't appear to do much of anything. But Things Get Done.

When you work with Wu Wei, you have no real accidents. Things may get a little Odd at times, but they work out. You don't have to try very hard to make them work out; you just let them. [...] If you're in tune with The Way Things Work, then they work the way they need to, no matter what you may think about it at the time. Later on you can look back and say, "Oh, now I understand. That had to happen so that those could happen, and those had #Quote by Benjamin Hoff
Law And Order quotes by John Of Kronstadt
#169. Besides loving each other, we must bear with each other and pardon ? 'forgive them that trespass against us' ? in order that our heavenly Father may 'forgive us our trespasses' (Mt. 6:14). Thus, with all your soul honor and love in every man the image of God, not regarding his sins, for God alone is Holy and without sin; and see how He loves us, how much He has created and still creates for us, punishing us mercifully and forgiving us bounteously and graciously. Honor the man also, in spite of his sins, for he can always amend. #Quote by John Of Kronstadt
Law And Order quotes by Jim Harrison
#170. This infantile sense of order tended to infect my life at large. Up at 5:30 a.m., coffee, oatmeal, perhaps sausage (homemade), and fresh eggs giving one of the yolks to Lola. Listening to NPR and grieving more recently over the absence of Bob Edwards who was the sound of morning as surely as birds. Reading a paragraph or two of Emerson or Loren Eiseley to raise the level of my thinking. Going out to feed the cattle if it was during our six months of bad weather. #Quote by Jim Harrison
Law And Order quotes by Plato
#171. And what shall he suffer who slays him who of all men, as they say, is his own best friend? I mean the suicide, who deprives himself by violence of his appointed share of life. Not because the law of the state requires him. Nor yet under the compulsion of some painful and inevitable misfortune which has come upon him. Nor because he has had to suffer from irremediable and intolerable shame, but who from sloth or want of manliness imposes upon himself an unjust penalty. #Quote by Plato
Law And Order quotes by Wayne Dyer
#172. I don't think goal setting is an important basis for a retail business - or for anyone. Most of the time goal setting puts too much energy and attention on being someplace else, instead of helping you appreciate where you are.If I ran a retail store, which I have done in my life, I would go into it from a place of "I am thrilled to be here, and I am honored to be able to serve other people." I would not be telling myself constantly that I have to double my sales in order for me to be happy. I would tell myself, "I am content to be here in this moment, and I love this work." #Quote by Wayne Dyer
Law And Order quotes by Horace
#173. The aim of the poet is to inform or delight, or to combine together, in what he says, both pleasure and applicability to life. In instructing, be brief in what you say in order that your readers may grasp it quickly and retain it faithfully. Superfluous words simply spill out when the mind is already full. Fiction invented in order to please should remain close to reality. #Quote by Horace
Law And Order quotes by Tom Rooney
#174. My great uncle Pvt. Tommy Rooney, USMC, was killed on Guam during the Pacific Campaign in World War II. I was named after him, so I always thought about him and wearing the uniform. The JAG Corps gave me that opportunity after law school. #Quote by Tom Rooney

Law And Order quotes by Walt Frazier
#177. The game within the game is the game that only the players see. They experience it in relation to one another on the floor at a particular time and in the middle of the action. It is one of the nuances of the game of basketball.
As Knick teammates during those years, we knew what a teammate was going to do almost before he did it. We helped one another on defense and shared the ball on offense. We made room for each of us to be his best within the context of the team. For example, I often would see Clyde come down the floor with the ball. I'd catch his eye. I knew he wanted to go down my side of the floor. In order to give him a little more room to move, I would clear out. That way I didn't clog up his space. Or, when I had the ball on the side and he was at the top of the key, waiting to go backdoor, our center knew he had to move to the other side of the floor to create the room for the backdoor bounce pass from me to Clyde who was moving down the lane toward the basket. That was the game within the game. On one level, the game within the game was a matter of mechanics but is also operated on a psychological level in that we truly were all for one and one for all. We challenged one another in practice to become better. We helped one another come back from defeat. We inspired one another to reach our peak team performance. None of us felt we could be as good alone as all of us could be together. Our unity came sometimes with laughs, sometimes with conflicts, sometimes #Quote by Walt Frazier
Law And Order quotes by Jack London
#178. And all the while the four men lay beside me and watched and made no move. Nor did I move, and without shame I say it; though my reason was compelled to struggle hard against my natural impulse to rise up and interfere. I knew life. Of what use to the woman, or to me, would be my being beaten to death by five men there on the bank of the Susquehanna? I once saw a man hanged, and though my whole soul cried protest, my mouth cried not. Had it cried, I should most likely have had my skull crushed by the butt of a revolver, for it was the law that the man should hang. And here, in this gypsy group, it was the law that the woman should be whipped.

Even so, the reason in both cases that I did not interfere was not that it was the law, but that the law was stronger than I. Had it not been for those four men beside me in the grass, right gladly would I have waded into the man with the whip. And, barring the accident of the landing on me with a knife or a club in the hands of some of the various women of the camp, I am confident that I should have beaten him into a mess. But the four men were beside me in the grass. They made their law stronger than I. #Quote by Jack London
Law And Order quotes by Elena Ferrante
#179. It's hard to explain why, but that regret made me suffer. It seemed to be the sign of a true interest in Lila, something much stronger than the compliments for my discipline as a constant reader. It occurred to me that if Lila had taken out just a single book a year, on that book she would have left her imprint and the teacher would have felt it the moment she returned it, which I left no mark, I embodied only the persistence with which I added volume to volume in no particular order. #Quote by Elena Ferrante
Law And Order quotes by Eartha Kitt
#180. Greed can be very dangerous because you sacrifice your soul for the sake of something material, and then you start sacrificing people in order to keep that which is material. #Quote by Eartha Kitt
Law And Order quotes by Joseph Fourier
#181. There cannot be a language more universal and more simple, more free from errors and obscurities ... more worthy to express the invariable relations of all natural things [than mathematics]. [It interprets] all phenomena by the same language, as if to attest the unity and simplicity of the plan of the universe, and to make still more evident that unchangeable order which presides over all natural causes #Quote by Joseph Fourier
Law And Order quotes by Robert Pogue Harrison
#182. Our basic human institutions - religion, matrimony, and burial, also law, language, literature, and whatever else relies on the transmission of legacy - are authored, always and from the very start, by those who cam before. The awareness of death that defines human nature is inseparable from - indeed, it arises from, our awareness that we are not self-authored, that we follow in the footsteps of the dead. . . .
Nonhuman species obey the law of vitality, but humanity in its distinctive features is through and through necrocratic. Whether we are conscious of it or not we do the will of the ancestors; their precedents are our law; we submit to their dictates, even when we rebel against them. Our diligence, hardihood, rectitude, and heroism, but also our folly, spite, rancor, and pathologies, are so many signatures of the dead on the contracts that seal our identities. We inherit their obsessions; assume their burdens; carry on their causes; promote their mentalities, ideologies, and very often their superstitions; and often we die trying to vindicate their humiliations.
Why this servitude? We have no choice. Only the dead can grant us legitimacy. Left to ourselves we all bastards. #Quote by Robert Pogue Harrison
Law And Order quotes by Eric Voegelin
#183. Philosophy springs from the love of being; it is man's loving endeavor to perceive the order of being and attune himself to it. Gnosis desires dominion over being; in order to seize control of being the Gnostic constructs his system. The building of systems is a gnostic form of reasoning, not a philosophical one. #Quote by Eric Voegelin
Law And Order quotes by David Whyte
#184. One of the most beautifully disturbing questions we can ask, is whether a given story we tell about our lives is actually true, and whether the opinions we go over every day have any foundation or are things we repeat to ourselves simply so that we will continue to play the game. It can be quite disorienting to find that a story we have relied on is not only not true - it actually never was true. Not now not ever. There is another form of obsolescence that can fray at the cocoon we have spun about ourselves, that is, the story was true at one time, and for an extended period; the story was even true and good to us, but now it is no longer true and no longer of any benefit, in fact our continued retelling of it simply imprisons us. We are used to the prison however, we have indeed fitted cushions and armchairs and made it comfortable and we have locked the door from the inside.

The imprisoning story I identified by the time the entree was served was one I had told myself for a long time. "In order to write I need peace and quiet and an undisturbed place far from others or the possibility of being disturbed. I knew however, that if I wanted to enter the next creative stage, something had to change; I simply did not have enough free space between traveling, speaking and being a good father and husband to write what I wanted to write. The key in the lock turned surprisingly easy, I simply said to myself, "What if I acted as if it wasn't true any more, what if it had be #Quote by David Whyte

Law And Order quotes by Vladimir Nabokov
#186. He suggested I play golf, but finally agreed to give me something that, he said, "would really work"; and going to a cabinet, he produced a vial of violet-blue capsules banded with dark purple at one end, which, he said, had just been placed on the market and were intended not for neurotics whom a draft of water could calm if properly administered, but only for great sleepless artists who had to die for a few hours in order to live for centuries. #Quote by Vladimir Nabokov
Law And Order quotes by Junot Diaz
#187. Oh, Beli; not so rashly, not so rashly: What did you know about states or diasporas? What did you know about Nueba Yol or unheated 'old law' tenements or children whose self-hate short-circuited their minds? What did you know, madame, about immigration? Don't laugh, mi negrita, for your world is about to be changed. Utterly. Yes: a terrible beauty is etc., etc. Take it from me. You laugh because you've been ransacked to the limit of your soul, because your lover betrayed you almost unto death, because your first son was never born. You laugh because you have no front teeth and you've sworn never to smile again. #Quote by Junot Diaz
Law And Order quotes by Pat Conroy
#188. It seemed to me that their love was based on their common need for order and mannerliness in their lives. Both had endured lives of chaos and incivility in their first marriages, and they provided each other with safe harbor at last. The town of Waterford had #Quote by Pat Conroy
