Law Is quotes by Nafisa Haji
#1. There is an old Arab Bedouin saying: I, against my brothers. I and my brothers against my cousins. I and my brothers and my cousins against the world. That is jungle law. It is the way of the world when the world is thrown into chaos. It is our job to avert that chaos, to fight against it, to resist the urge to become savage. Because the problem with such law is that if you follow it, you are always fighting against someone. #Quote by Nafisa Haji
Law Is quotes by Ma Jun
#2. Regulatory failings mean that the cost of breaking the law is far below that of obeying it - businesses are happier to pay fines than to control pollution. #Quote by Ma Jun
Law Is quotes by David Frum
#3. What is spreading today is repressive kleptocracy, led by rulers motivated by greed rather than by the deranged idealism of Hitler or Stalin or Mao. Such rulers rely less on terror and more on rule twisting, the manipulation of information, and the co-option of elites. Their goal is self-enrichment; the corrosion of the rule of law is the necessary means. As a shrewd local observer explained to me on a visit to Hungary in early 2016, "The main benefit of controlling a modern bureaucratic state is not the power to persecute the innocent. It is the power to protect the guilty."
No president in history has burned more public money to sustain his personal lifestyle than Donald Trump. Three-quarters of the way through his first year in office, President Trump was on track to spend more on travel in one year of his presidency than Barack Obama in eight - even though Trump only rarely ventured west of the Mississippi or across any ocean. #Quote by David Frum
Law Is quotes by Milton Friedman
#4. A minimum-wage law is, in reality, a law that makes it illegal for an employer to hire a person with limited skills. #Quote by Milton Friedman
Law Is quotes by Frederic Bastiat
#5. The statement, "The purpose of the law is to cause justice to reign," is not a rigorously accurate statement. It ought to be stated that the purpose of the law is to prevent injustice from reigning. In fact, it is injustice, instead of justice, that has an existence of its own. Justice is achieved only when injustice is absent. #Quote by Frederic Bastiat
Law Is quotes by Robert Greene
#6. By taking a shape, by having a visible plan, you open yourself to attack. Instead of taking a form for your enemy to grasp, keep yourself adaptable and on the move. Accept the fact that nothing is certain and no law is fixed. The best way to protect yourself is to be as fluid and formless as water; never bet on stability or lasting order. Everything changes. #Quote by Robert Greene
Law Is quotes by Edward Coke
#7. Law is the safest helmet. #Quote by Edward Coke
Law Is quotes by Caryll Houselander
#8. Christ subjected himself to the law of the seed in the earth, to the law of rest and growth. He was "one of the children of the year," growing through rest, secret in his mothers womb, receiving the warmth of the sun through her, living the life of dependence, helplessness, littleness, darkness, and silence which, by a mystery of the Eternal Law, is the life of natural growth. #Quote by Caryll Houselander
Law Is quotes by Allan Bloom
#9. Once the law is broken with impunity, each man regains the right to any means he deems proper or necessary in order to defend himself against the new tyrant, the one who can break the law. #Quote by Allan Bloom
Law Is quotes by Marvin Ammori
#10. Regardless of the industry, antitrust law is meant to benefit consumers - not competitors. #Quote by Marvin Ammori
Law Is quotes by John Rarick
#11. We hold that the ownership of private property is the right and privilege of every American citizen and is one of the foundation stones upon which this nation and its free enterprise system has been built and has prospered. We feel that private property rights and human rights are inseparable and indivisible. Only in those nations that guarantee the right of ownership of private property as basic and sacred under their law is there any recognition of human rights. #Quote by John Rarick
Law Is quotes by Joshua Oppenheimer
#12. Although we can talk about an Indonesian democracy, or we can talk about democratic elections and democratic rituals - the trappings of democracy - we can't genuinely talk about democracy in Indonesia because there is not rule of law, and democracy without rule of law is a nonsense. #Quote by Joshua Oppenheimer
Law Is quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#13. The study of the law is useful in a variety of points of view. it qualifies a man to be useful to himself, to his neighbors, & to the public. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Law Is quotes by John Marshall
#14. The constitution is either a superior paramount law, unchangeable by ordinary means, or it is on a level with ordinary legislative acts, alterable when the legislature shall please to alter it. It is emphatically the province and duty of the judicial department to say what the law is. This is the very essence of judicial duty. #Quote by John Marshall
Law Is quotes by Tullian Tchividjian
#15. The way of God's grace becomes indispensable when we realize that the way of God's law is inflexible. #Quote by Tullian Tchividjian
Law Is quotes by Jack Kevorkian
#16. When your conscience says law is immoral, don't follow it. #Quote by Jack Kevorkian
Law Is quotes by Abdal Hakim Murad
#17. Those who come to Islam because they wish to draw closer to God have no problem with a multiform Islam radiating from a single revealed paradigmatic core. But those who come to Islam seeking an identity will find the multiplicity of traditional Muslim cultures intolerable. People with confused identities are attracted to totalitarian solutions. And today, many young Muslims feel so threatened by the diversity of calls on their allegiance, and by the sheer complexity of modernity, that the only form of Islam they can regard as legitimate is a totalitarian, monolithic one. That there should be four schools of Islamic law is to them unbearable. That Muslim cultures should legitimately differ is a species of blasphemy. #Quote by Abdal Hakim Murad
Law Is quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
#18. God's law is our pleasure when the God of the law is our God.
-Commentary on Psalm 119 #Quote by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Law Is quotes by Eberhard Jungel
#19. ...godly power and godly love are related to one another neither through subordination nor dialectically. Rather, God's mightiness is understood as the power of his love. Only love is almighty. Then God's lordship is to be understood as the rule of his mercy and God's law is accordingly the law of his grace. #Quote by Eberhard Jungel
Law Is quotes by Robert Green Ingersoll
#20. The religion that has to be supported by law is without value, not only, but a fraud and a curse. The religious argument that has to be supported by a musket is hardly worth making. #Quote by Robert Green Ingersoll
Law Is quotes by Gerry Spence
#21. The function of the law is not to provide justice or to preserve freedom. The function of the law is to keep those who hold power, in power. #Quote by Gerry Spence
Law Is quotes by W.S. Gilbert
#22. The Law is the true embodiment of everything that's excellent; it has no kind of fault or flaw and I, my Lords, embody the Law. #Quote by W.S. Gilbert
Law Is quotes by The Next Generation (season 1 Epis. 7: Justice)
#23. There can be no justice so long as law is absolute. Even life itself is an excercise in exceptions."
"When has justice ever been as simple as a rule-book?" - Riker #Quote by The Next Generation (season 1 Epis. 7: Justice)
Law Is quotes by Jacques Monod
#24. Evolution in the biosphere is therefore a necessarily irreversible process defining a direction in time; a direction which is the same as that enjoined by the law of increasing entropy, that is to say, the second law of thermodynamics. This is far more than a mere comparison: the second law is founded upon considerations identical to those which establish the irreversibility of evolution. Indeed, it is legitimate to view the irreversibility of evolution as an expression of the second law in the biosphere. #Quote by Jacques Monod
Law Is quotes by Steve Merrick
#25. The objective of law is, to hide the truth in plain site. #Quote by Steve Merrick
Law Is quotes by Claude Bernard
#26. Real science exists, then, only from the moment when a phenomenon is accurately defined as to its nature and rigorously determined in relation to its material conditions, that is, when its law is known. Before that, we have only groping and empiricism. #Quote by Claude Bernard
Law Is quotes by Milton Friedman
#27. I am convinced that the minimum-wage law is the most anti-Negro law on our statute books in its effect, not its intent. #Quote by Milton Friedman
Law Is quotes by Stuart Wilde
#28. Now think about the Universal Law. It reflects to you exactly and precisely what you put out. If your thought-forms say, "I haven't got a clue about what I want," the Universal Law is going to say, "Listen, mate, if you haven't got a clue, neither have I. #Quote by Stuart Wilde
Law Is quotes by Aristotle.
#29. Law is order, and good law is good order. #Quote by Aristotle.
Law Is quotes by Massad Ayoob

Law Is quotes by Emma Goldman
#31. No great idea in its beginning can ever be within the law. How can it be within the law? The law is stationary. The law is fixed. The law is a chariot wheel which binds us all regardless of conditions or place or time. #Quote by Emma Goldman
Law Is quotes by George Earle Buckle
#32. To try and change opinion by law is worse than futile. #Quote by George Earle Buckle
Law Is quotes by Feisal Abdul Rauf

Law Is quotes by Wm. Paul Young

Law Is quotes by Jiten Bhatt
#35. Murphy's Law states that,
"If anything will go wrong, it will".
Positive side of this law is,
"If anything good can happen, it definitely will happen #Quote by Jiten Bhatt
Law Is quotes by Lysander Spooner
#36. Doing a thing by law, or according to law, is only carrying the law into execution. And punishing a man by, or according to, the sentence or judgment of his peers, is only carrying that sentence or judgment into execution. #Quote by Lysander Spooner
Law Is quotes by Mark Twain
#37. Going to law is losing a cow for the sake of a cat. #Quote by Mark Twain
Law Is quotes by Cesar Aira
#38. I beg you not to read anything threatening, or even prophetic, into my words, Mr. Clarke. Simply take them as a description, or a 'law' if you like. This circle around a law is a world in miniature within our world, which itself is a miniature. We create the world to fit in with our personal system, so that man can become world. In other words, so that the miniature can become miniature. But miniatures have their own laws, you know. It is not only space which can become minute: it also happens to the corresponding time, which becomes extremely fast. That is why life is so short. #Quote by Cesar Aira
Law Is quotes by Richard Bach
#39. The only true law is that which leads to freedom, #Quote by Richard Bach
Law Is quotes by Warren Buffett
#40. Charlie and I believe our four criteria are essential if directors are to do their job - which, by law, is to faithfully represent owners. Yet these criteria are usually ignored. Instead, consultants and CEOs seeking board candidates will often say, "We're looking for a woman," or "a Hispanic," or "someone from abroad," or what have you. It sometimes sounds as if the mission is to stock Noah's ark. Over the years I've been queried many times about potential directors and have yet to hear anyone ask, "Does he think like an intelligent owner?" The questions I instead #Quote by Warren Buffett
Law Is quotes by Ovid
#41. The purpose of law is to prevent the strong always having their way. #Quote by Ovid
Law Is quotes by Stephen Hawking
#42. A scientific law is not a scientific law if it only holds when some supernatural being decides to let things run and not intervene. In #Quote by Stephen Hawking
Law Is quotes by Martin Luther King, Jr.
#43. An unjust law is a code that a numerical or power majority group compels a minority group to obey but does not make binding on itself This is difference made legal. By the same token, a just law is a code that a majority compels a minority to follow and that is willing to follow itself. This is sameness made legal. #Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr.
Law Is quotes by Alan Dershowitz
#44. The law is agnostic about truth. #Quote by Alan Dershowitz
Law Is quotes by Marcus Tullius Cicero
#45. The law is silent during war.
[Lat., Silent leges inter arma.] #Quote by Marcus Tullius Cicero
Law Is quotes by Raymond Wacks
#46. the perhaps rather prosaic truth that law is an imperfect yet indispensable vehicle by which both to conserve and transform society #Quote by Raymond Wacks
Law Is quotes by Laura Wasser
#47. If one person is spending all of their income on clothes, travel, hobbies, and entertaining, and one person is saving it, that may not be quite fair if and when you guys split up, depending on what the law is and what you decided to do. #Quote by Laura Wasser
Law Is quotes by Erik Larson
#48. Even more systemic persecution was on the way, Messersmith wrote. He had learned that a draft existed of a new law that would effectively deprive Jews of their citizenship and all civil rights. Germany's Jews, he wrote, look upon this proposed law as the most serious moral blow which could be delivered to them. They have and are being deprived of practically all means of making a livelihood and understand that the new citizenship law is to practically deprive them of all civil rights. #Quote by Erik Larson
Law Is quotes by Ann Coulter
#49. Invalidating laws has absolutely nothing to do with judicial activism. It depends on whether the law is unconstitutional or not. That's really the key point. #Quote by Ann Coulter
Law Is quotes by Hassanal Bolkiah
#50. Theory states that Allah's law is cruel and unfair, but Allah himself has said that his law is indeed fair. #Quote by Hassanal Bolkiah
Law Is quotes by Roger Scruton
#51. The common law does not proceed by legislation, or by imposing directives and decrees on a reluctant population. It proceeds by resolving conflicts, and discovering the rules that are implicit in those conflicts and in the behaviour that gives rise to them. Common law is discovered law, and its principles are not imposed from above but extracted from below, by judges whose aim is to do justice in the individual case, rather than to reform the conduct of mankind. Its rights are not stated but implied, and they encapsulate a vision of individual freedom rather than a politics of collective conformity. The rights dreamed up in the European Courts, by judges who do not pay the cost of imposing them, are experiments in social engineering, rather than recognitions of individual sovereignty, and this is in no matter more evident than in those clauses that have imposed the mores of the elite on a reluctant residue of Christian believers, and which are now ubiquitous in our statutory law. #Quote by Roger Scruton
Law Is quotes by Stefan Molyneux
#52. The law is an opinion with a gun. #Quote by Stefan Molyneux
Law Is quotes by Martin Heidegger
#53. To give oneself the law is the highest freedom. The much-lauded 'academic freedom' will be expelled from the German university; for this freedom was not genuine because it was only negative. It primarily meant lack of concern, arbitrariness of intentions and inclinations, lack of restraint in what was done and left undone. The concept of the freedom of the German student is now brought back to its truth. Henceforth, the bond and service of German students will unfold from this truth. #Quote by Martin Heidegger
Law Is quotes by Fred Rodell
#54. The reason the lawyers lead the line to the guillotine or the firing squad is that, while law is supposed to be a device to serve society, a civilized way of helping the wheels go round without too much friction, it is pretty hard to find a group less concerned with serving society and more concerned with serving themselves than the lawyers. #Quote by Fred Rodell
Law Is quotes by Malti Bhojwani
#55. Change your focus. Refocus on the desired results Once you acknowledge how easy it is to attract factors in your life that you do not want and accept how effective and simple the law is, you can start using it to your advantage. #Quote by Malti Bhojwani
Law Is quotes by George Herbert
#56. The worst of law is, that one suit breedes twenty.
[The worst of law is that one suit breeds twenty.] #Quote by George Herbert
Law Is quotes by Louis D. Brandeis
#57. The general rule of law is, that the noblest of human productions -- knowledge, truths ascertained, conceptions, and ideas -- become, after voluntary communication to others, free as the air to common use."
~Louis D. Brandeis #Quote by Louis D. Brandeis
Law Is quotes by Paul Ricoeur
#58. The Law is one aspect of a much more concrete and encompassing relation than the relation between commanding and obeying that characterizes the imperative. #Quote by Paul Ricoeur
Law Is quotes by Norman Lamm
#59. At Cardozo, study of law is part of a larger culture. You can get a law degree and make a good living, but it is best that you do that having studied the discipline for its own inherent merit, because you love studying. #Quote by Norman Lamm
Law Is quotes by Fareed Zakaria
#60. For years many in the oil-rich states argued that their enormous wealth would bring modernizations. They pointed to the impressive appetites of Saudis and Kuwaitis for things Western, from McDonald's hamburgers to Rolex watches to Cadillac limousines. but importing Western good is easy; importing the inner stuffing of modern society - a free market, political parties, accountability, the rule of law - is difficult and even dangerous for the ruling elites #Quote by Fareed Zakaria
Law Is quotes by William James
#61. The general law is that no mental modification ever occurs which is not accompanied or followed by a bodily change. #Quote by William James
Law Is quotes by John Marshall
#62. When a law is in its nature a contract, when absolute rights have vested under that contract, a repeal of the law cannot divest those rights. The people can act only by their agents and, within the powers conferred upon them, their acts must be considered as the acts of the people. #Quote by John Marshall
Law Is quotes by Charles W. Leadbeater
#63. In Co-Masonry the term "lore" is employed as describing all these scriptures, since in the use of them we are in pursuit of wisdom. The term "law" is used in many other Lodges, but even then it is explained in the ritual that the object of the Volume of the Sacred Law is to illumine our minds. #Quote by Charles W. Leadbeater
Law Is quotes by Timothy Thomas Fortune
#64. Mob law is the most forcible expression of an abnormal public opinion; it shows that society is rotten to the core. #Quote by Timothy Thomas Fortune
Law Is quotes by Agona Apell
#65. The law is not an ass but a chameleon in ass skin: it turns deathly black when around blacks and pristine white when around whites #Quote by Agona Apell
Law Is quotes by Peter Kropotkin
#66. The law is an adroit mixture of customs that are beneficial to society, and could be followed even if no law existed, and others that are of advantage to a ruling minority, but harmful to the masses of men, and can be enforced on them only by terror. #Quote by Peter Kropotkin
Law Is quotes by Imran Khan
#67. Lack of rule of law is the main reason Pakistan could not join the ranks of progressive nations. #Quote by Imran Khan
Law Is quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#68. To Partake In The Consequence of A Law Is To Violate It #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Law Is quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#69. Law is only a temporary fix for chaos, not the cure. The only cure for chaos is individual responsibility. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Law Is quotes by Deron Williams
#70. How shall not man, whose nature stands bound up with forces vast, innate with strength, reveal his life In mould of holiest cast. His law is action: gates of power stand open in his view; a restless soul, a holy zeal, shall give him entrance through. #Quote by Deron Williams
Law Is quotes by Randall Terry
#71. You better believe that I want to build a Christian nation, because the only option is a pagan nation. Not that the government can make someone a Christian by decree. A Christian nation would be defined as We acknowledge God in our body politic, in our communities, that the God of the Bible is our God, and, we acknowledge that His law is supreme. #Quote by Randall Terry
Law Is quotes by Joseph Heller
#72. The laws of nature are only as immutable as the minds which promote them. Ignorance of the law is 9/10ths of the law. Just because you aren't paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get you. #Quote by Joseph Heller
Law Is quotes by Vilfredo Pareto
#73. Theories of "natural law" and the "law of nations" are another excellent example of discussions destitute of all exactness. [ ... ] "Natural law" is simply that law of which the person using the phrase approves[ ... ] #Quote by Vilfredo Pareto
Law Is quotes by Judith Butler
#74. Sexual harassment law is very important. But I think it would be a mistake if the sexual harassment law movement is the only way in which feminism is known in the media. #Quote by Judith Butler
Law Is quotes by Jessie Sampter
#75. God gave a law ... called justice. But they have made a law for themselves that is terrible and intricate, and they cannot escape it, for the evil will and the good will are caught alike in its meshes, and it is darkness to the eyes that see and a stumbling block to the feet that run. This law is called necessity. #Quote by Jessie Sampter
Law Is quotes by D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones
#76. We tend to have a wrong view of law and to think of it as something that is opposed to grace. But it is not. Law is only opposed to grace in the sense that there was once a covenant of law, and we are now under the covenant of grace. #Quote by D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones
Law Is quotes by Laurell K. Hamilton
#77. Murphy's law is the only true dependable in my life most of the time. #Quote by Laurell K. Hamilton
Law Is quotes by Robert Kennedy
#78. The poor man looks upon the law as an enemy, not as a friend. For him, the law is always taking something away. #Quote by Robert Kennedy
Law Is quotes by Mark Manson
#79. What's interesting about the backwards law is that it's called 'backwards' for a reason: not giving a fuck works in reverse.....The failures in business are what lead to a better understanding of what's necessary to be successful...The pain of honest confrontation is what generates the greatest trust and respect in your relationships. Suffering through your fears and anxieties is what allows you to build courage and perseverance. #Quote by Mark Manson
Law Is quotes by P.D. James
#80. All these problems [deciding cases] are easier for people who believe in God. Those of us who don't or can't have to do the best we can. That's what the law is, the best we can do. Human justice is imperfect, but it's the only justice we have. #Quote by P.D. James
Law Is quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#81. A common and natural result of an undue respect of law is, that you may see a file of soldiers, colonel, captain, corporal, privates, powder-monkeys, and all, marching in admirable order over hill and dale to the wars, against their wills, ay, against their common sense and consciences, which makes it very steep marching indeed, and produces a palpitation of the heart. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Law Is quotes by Josh Stern
#82. Karma can be an ill-timed mistress who always calls when your Mother-in-law is the first to answer the phone ... . and it would be a completely sad story had it not been so surreally hilarious. #Quote by Josh Stern
Law Is quotes by Dean Koontz
#83. As an attorney, I assure you the law isn't a line engraved in marble, immovable and unchangeable through the centuries. Rather ... the law is like a string, fixed at both ends but with a great deal of play in it very loose, the line of the law so you can stretch it this way or that, rearrange the arc of it so you are nearly always short of blatant theft or cold-blooded murder safely on the right side. That's a daunting thing to realize but true. #Quote by Dean Koontz
Law Is quotes by Hannah Arendt
#84. The best criterion by which to decide whether someone has been forced outside the pale of the law is to ask if he would benefit by committing a crime. If a small burglary is likely to improve his legal position, at least temporarily, one may be sure he has been deprived of human rights. #Quote by Hannah Arendt
Law Is quotes by Ron Paul
#85. September 11th does not justify ignoring the Constitution by creating broad new federal police powers. The rule of law is worthless if we ignore it whenever crises occur. #Quote by Ron Paul
Law Is quotes by Oscar Wilde
#86. I was wrong. God's law is only Love. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Law Is quotes by Al Gore
#87. A president who breaks the law is a threat to the very structure of our government. #Quote by Al Gore
Law Is quotes by Robert Bork
#88. Law is vulnerable to the winds of intellectual or moral fashion, which it then validates as the commands of our most basic concept. #Quote by Robert Bork
Law Is quotes by Honore De Balzac
#89. A man who stops at nothing short of the law is very clever indeed! #Quote by Honore De Balzac
Law Is quotes by Oscar Arias
#90. I shall never accept that the law can be used to justify tragedy, to keep things as they are, to make us abandon our ideas of a different world. Law is the path of liberty, and must as such open the way to progress for everyone. #Quote by Oscar Arias
Law Is quotes by Martin Luther
#91. The Law is for the proud and the Gospel for the brokenhearted. #Quote by Martin Luther
Law Is quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#92. There are certain persons who can ... that is, not precisely are able to, but have a perfect right to commit breaches of morality and crimes, and that the law is not for them. #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Law Is quotes by Brandon Sanderson
#93. The law is there to keep us from ruining everyone else's ability to explore. Without law, there's no freedom. #Quote by Brandon Sanderson
Law Is quotes by Andrew W. McThenia, Jr.
#94. This myth often plays a big part in our theology. If we are bad we will be punished. But for that to make any sense we have to be rewarded if we are good. Our law is to a large extent premised on just such notions of rewards and punishment. We define our goodness by another's lack of it. And that is one fallacy in letting te law become a repository for our moral aspirations. Any system that requires that we define our goodness by another's lack of it inevitably leaves us in the position of drawing lines. And as long as we draw lines, we will carefully and with great skill place ourselves on the right side. As long as we draw lines we will be hard-pressed to remember that in the context of salvation we are exactly like our neighbors, lost and in need.
But this sort of thinking holds an even greater danger. Not only does it lead us to think that everyone who is different is potentially an outcast, but it leads us to believe that we can control God. It leads to blasphemy. If we are bad God will punish us. And if that is true, it must mean that if we are good God will have to reward us. So I can control God by my own behavior. And without a view of the world beyond difference it is inevitable that we will put ourselves or our institutions - like the law - where God ought to be. To dissolve difference, to conceive the inconceivable, to imagine the unimaginable - this is what allows us to see beyond ourselves and finally what sets us free.
We are freed in two senses when #Quote by Andrew W. McThenia, Jr.
Law Is quotes by James C. Scott
#95. immanent in their willingness to break the law was not so much a desire to sow chaos as a compulsion to instate a more just legal order. To the extent that our current rule of law is more capacious and emancipatory than its predecessors were, we owe much of that gain to lawbreakers. #Quote by James C. Scott
Law Is quotes by Fulton J. Sheen
#96. Physical experience is the translation of phenomena into symbolic language, and the law is the creation of the wind or a symbol. #Quote by Fulton J. Sheen
Law Is quotes by Curtis Jackson
#97. The State of New York City says in defense you can use as much force as you feel like the person that is coming for you with. So if I'm wrong than the law is wrong. That's really the way I felt. #Quote by Curtis Jackson
Law Is quotes by Tullian Tchividjian
#98. Only when we see that the way of God's law is absolutely inflexible will we see that God's grace is absolutely indispensable. A high view of the law reminds us that God accepts us on the basis of Christ's perfection, not our progress. Grace, properly understood, is the movement of a holy God toward an unholy people. He doesn't cheapen the law or ease its requirements. He fulfills them in his Son, who then gives his righteousness to us. That's the gospel. Pure and simple. #Quote by Tullian Tchividjian
Law Is quotes by George W. Bush
#99. Life in America shows that liberty, paired with law, is not to be feared. #Quote by George W. Bush
Law Is quotes by Peter Tatchell
#100. While other faiths are also often oppressive, sharia law is especially oppressive. Its interpretations stipulate the execution of Muslims who commit adultery, renounce their faith (apostates) or have same-sex relationships. Sharia methods of execution, such as stoning, are particularly brutal and cruel - witness the stoning to death this week in Somalia of a 20-year-old woman divorcee who was accused of adultery. This is the fourth stoning of an adulterer in Somalia in the last year. #Quote by Peter Tatchell
Law Is quotes by Hersch Lauterpacht
#101. If international law is, in some ways, at the vanishing point of law, the law of war is, perhaps even more conspicuously, at the vanishing point of international law. #Quote by Hersch Lauterpacht
Law Is quotes by Joseph P. Bradley
#102. Society cannot exist without law. Law is the bond of society: that which makes it, that which preserves it and keeps it together. It is, in fact, the essence of civil society. #Quote by Joseph P. Bradley
Law Is quotes by Mark Durie
#103. Sharia law is a Malignant law, it's totally based on the interpretation of the Koran and the Hajid, and the way Islam and the profit lived. #Quote by Mark Durie
Law Is quotes by Robert Crais
#104. Lucy said, The law is an adversarial contest that defines justice as staying within the rules and seeing the game to its conclusion. Justice is reaching a conclusion. It has very little to do with right and wrong. The law gives us order. Only men and women can give us what you want to call justice. #Quote by Robert Crais
Law Is quotes by Adam Sedgwick
#105. If the [Vestiges] be true, the labours of sober induction are in vain; religion is a lie; human law is a mass of folly, and a base injustice; morality is moonshine; our labours for the black people of Africa were works of madmen; and man and woman are only better beasts! #Quote by Adam Sedgwick
Law Is quotes by Seth
#106. My mother-in-law is obsessed with clowns. #Quote by Seth
Law Is quotes by Shahbaz Bhatti
#107. I think the media projected the case of Asia Bibi in a right way. They have given the importance of this case and especially how the blasphemy law is being misused for the victimization [of religious minorities]. #Quote by Shahbaz Bhatti
Law Is quotes by John Emerich Edward Dalberg-Acton
#108. Opinions alter, manners change, creeds rise and fall, but the moral law is written on the tablets of eternity. #Quote by John Emerich Edward Dalberg-Acton
Law Is quotes by Irving Kristol
#109. International law is a fiction abused callously, or ignored ruthlessly, by those nations that, unlike the Western democracies, never took it seriously in the first place. #Quote by Irving Kristol
Law Is quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#110. The law is equal before all of us; but we are not all equal before the law. Virtually there is one law for the rich and another for the poor, one law for the cunning and another for the simple, one law for the forceful and another for the feeble, one law for the ignorant and another for the learned, one law for the brave and another for the timid, and within family limits one law for the parent and no law at all for the child. #Quote by George Bernard Shaw

Law Is quotes by Margaret Geller
#115. At least in part, people are attracted to subjects where they can identify at a basic level with the people who do it. The extraordinary aesthetic of the natural world is not obvious to someone who never leaves the inner city. Appreciation of the elegance and power of physical law is an acquired taste. #Quote by Margaret Geller

Law Is quotes by Michele Sinclair
#117. Eleanor reached over and stroked his foreman.
"Was I fair?" Henry whispered.
She nodded. "Very. Besides, I think our Ranulf gave you the justification for some of the changes you have been considering.Perhaps a court of law is needed."
"He did.And besides it was all highly entertaining.I had to bite my tongue when Craven started all that nonsense about Ranulf trying to kill him with an arrow."
"So you knew from the beginning..." Eleanor murmured in partial disbelief and admiration.
"That Ranulf was up to something? The man would never let anyone-even me-insult his honor without response. It was hard to wait until the oaf finished everything Ranulf needed him to say...and come to think of it...it was very convenient for Lady Bronwyn to be in disguise. How is it that you did not inform me earlier of what was to happen?"
"I did not know," Eleanor rejoined quickly. "I met with his wife, who never owned to her true identity...but I liked her and suspected she would enjoy the night much better as one of my ladies-in-waiting.It is a great honor,you know."
"And the idea of coming in masquerade?"
"Well,it has been dull lately."
"And you never knew who she was.Never thought to tell me you suspected Lady Bronwyn was not whom she professed to be."
"I only knew for sure that I liked her and that she was Laon's daughter. And as for the masquerade, I did it for you, my king."
"Me?"
"Mmm-hmmm," Eleanor purred against his ear. "I kno #Quote by Michele Sinclair

Law Is quotes by Tucker Max
#119. 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 Is quotes by Rose Schneiderman
#120. But every time the workers come out in the only way they know to protest against conditions which are unbearable the strong hand of the law is allowed to press down heavily upon us. #Quote by Rose Schneiderman
Law Is quotes by Edward P. Jones
#121. Henry," Robbins said, looking not at him but out to the other side ofthe road, "the law will protect you as a master to your slave, and it will not flinch when it protects you. That protection lasts from here" - and he pointed to an imaginary place in the road - "all the way to the death ofthat property" - and he pointed to a place a few feet from the first place. "But the law expects you to know what is master and what is slave. And it does not matter ifyou are not much more darker than your slave. The law is blind to that. You are the master and that is all the law wants to know. The law will come to you and stand behind you. But ifyou roll around and be a playmate to your property, and your property turns round and bites you, the law will come to you still, but it will not come with the full heart and all the deliberate speed that you will need. You will have failed in your part ofthe bargain. You will have pointed to the line that separates you from your property and told your property that the line does not matter. #Quote by Edward P. Jones
Law Is quotes by Walter Olson
#122. The problem, this book will argue, is not just that law schools generate so many bad ideas - mistaken and benighted ideas, impractical and socially destructive ideas - but that those ideas follow a predictable pattern. They confer power on legal intellectuals and their allies - at least the power to prescribe, often the power to litigate. The movement that results - whether couched as public interest law, as minority empowerment law, or as international human rights law - is in fact a bid for power, whether naked or cleverly disguised. #Quote by Walter Olson
Law Is quotes by Stockwell Day
#123. If the Liberals' law is passed, will sex education in the schools, including elementary grades, include the same portrayals of sexual activity which presently exist in heterosexual instruction? Will there be the same presentation of homosexual activity? Of course there will. #Quote by Stockwell Day
Law Is quotes by Saint Augustine
#124. The Law is not in fault, but our evil and wicked nature; even as a heap of lime is still and quiet until water is poured on it, but then it begins to smoke and burn, not from the fault of the water, but from the nature of the lime, which will not endure it. #Quote by Saint Augustine
Law Is quotes by Marianne Williamson
#125. The scientific revolution proved that there are objective, discernible laws of physical phenomena. Take gravity, for instance. You don't exactly have faith in the law of gravity so much as you just know that the law is the law. Now we are learning that there are objective, discernible laws of non-physical phenomena. These two sets of laws are parallel. Externally, the universe supports our physical survival. Photosynthesis in plants and plankton in the ocean produce oxygen, which we need in order to breathe. Internally the universe also supports our survival. Emotionally and psychologically the internal equivalent to oxygen, what we need in order to survive, is love. And human relationships exist to produce love. #Quote by Marianne Williamson
Law Is quotes by Martin Luther
#126. We despise the grace of God when we observe the Law for the purpose of being justified. The Law is good, holy, and profitable, but it does not justify. To keep the Law in order to be justified means to reject grace, to deny Christ, to despise His sacrifice, and to be lost. #Quote by Martin Luther

Law Is quotes by Abraham Lincoln
#128. Dear Sir: Yours of the 24th. asking 'the best mode of obtaining a thorough knowledge of the law' is received. The mode is very simple, though laborious, and tedious. It is only to get the books, and read, and study them carefully. Begin with Blackstone's Commentaries, and after reading it carefully through, say twice, take up Chitty's Pleading, Greenleaf's Evidence, & Story's Equity &c. in succession. Work, work, work, is the main thing. #Quote by Abraham Lincoln
Law Is quotes by Lewis F. Powell, Jr.
#129. Equal justice under law is not merely a caption on the facade of the Supreme Court building, it is perhaps the most inspiring ideal of our society. It is one of the ends for which our entire legal system exists ... it is fundamental that justice should be the same, in substance and availability, without regard to economic status. #Quote by Lewis F. Powell, Jr.
Law Is quotes by J. Gresham Machen
#130. A new and more powerful proclamation of the law is perhaps the most pressing need of the hour ... A low view of law always brings legalism into religion; a high view of law makes man a seeker after grace. Pray that the high view may prevail. #Quote by J. Gresham Machen
Law Is quotes by David Graeber
#131. It's legitimate for the police to use violence because they are enforcing the law; the law is legitimate because it's rooted in the constitution; the constitution is legitimate because it comes from the people; the people created the constitution by acts of illegal violence. The obvious question, then: How does one tell the difference between "the people" and a mere rampaging mob? #Quote by David Graeber
Law Is quotes by Etienne Gilson
#132. Just as it is by His goodness that God gives being to beings, so also it is by His goodness that He makes causes to be causes, thus delegating to them a certain participation in His actuality. Or rather, since causality flows from actuality, let us say that He confers the one in conferring the other, so that to the Christian mind the physical world in which we live offers a face which is the reverse of its physicism itself, a face where all that was read on the one side in terms of force, energy and law, is now read, on the other in terms of participations and analogies of the Divine Being. The Christian world takes on the character of a sacred world with a relation to God inscribed in its very being and every law that rules its functioning. #Quote by Etienne Gilson
Law Is quotes by Sally Cabot Gunning
#133. Otis, at last, removed his eyes from Jane. "All very well, my friend, but I must side with Miss Clarke here. The soldiers in this town have been treated abominably."

The table went still.

Otis went on. "Admit it, Freeman. Mud throwing and name-calling are one thing, but the courts - any flimsy charge against a soldier upheld, outrageous fines put down - criminal! The law must not be conscripted to serve one particular cause. To lost the law is to lose the fight."

"With respect, sir," Nate said, "I say when a people are under an illegal occupation they must fight with what they've got to hand."

Aunt Gill said, "And what have we got to hand but a few stories in the paper?"

Jane looked at her aunt in surprise. Another we.

"We have the people, Aunt," Nate answered her. "Thirty thousand from all the outlying towns, ready to march at a minute's notice, and all it takes to call them is a flaming barrel of pitch on the beacon hill. #Quote by Sally Cabot Gunning

Law Is quotes by Martin Luther
#139. At an earlier time there was no pleasure in the law for me. But now I find that the law is good and tasty, that it has been given to me so that I might live, and now I find my pleasure in it. Earlier, it told me what I ought to do. Now I begin to adapt myself to it. And for this I worship, praise, and serve God #Quote by Martin Luther
Law Is quotes by Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.

Law Is quotes by Russell Kirk

Law Is quotes by Hanya Yanagihara
#146. most intellectually engaging, the richest field of the law is contracts. Contracts are not just sheets of paper promising you a job, or a house, or an inheritance: in its purest, truest, broadest sense, contracts govern every realm of law. When we choose to live in a society, we choose to live under a contract, and to abide by the rules that a contract dictates for us - #Quote by Hanya Yanagihara
Law Is quotes by Sinclair B. Ferguson
#147. Commandments are the railroad tracks on which the life empowered by the love of God poured into the heart by the Holy Spirit runs. Love empowers the engine; law guides the direction. They are mutually interdependent. The notion that love can operate apart from law is a figment of the imagination. It is not only bad theology; it is poor psychology. It has to borrow from law to give eyes to love. #Quote by Sinclair B. Ferguson

Law Is quotes by Rich Lowry
#150. What (the Arizona immigration law) is likely to mean effectively is that if in the course of a traffic stop, a cop asks you for a driver's license, and you don't have one, and he asks you for other identification, and you have none, and he calls ICE and they have no record of you as a legal immigrant, you're in trouble. This is near-fascism? #Quote by Rich Lowry
Law Is quotes by Tullian Tchividjian
#151. We make a big mistake when we conclude that the law is the answer to bad behavior. In fact, the law alone stirs up more of such behavior. People get worse, not better, when you lay down the law. To be sure, the Spirit does use both God's law and God's gospel in our sanctification. But the law and the gospel do very different things. #Quote by Tullian Tchividjian
Law Is quotes by Hilary Mantel
#152. Champs-de-Mars, the day of celebration: a crowd of people in Sunday clothes. Women with parasols, pet dogs on leads. Stickyfingered children pawing at their mothers; people who have bought coconuts and don't know what to make of them. Then the glint of light on bayonets, people clutching hands, whirling children off their feet, pushing and calling out in alarm as they are separated from their families. Some mistake, there must be some mistake. The red flag of martial law is unfurled. What's a flag, on a day of celebration? Then the horrors of the first volley. And back, losing footing, blood blossoming horribly on the grass, fingers under stampeding feet, the splinter of hoof on bone. It is over within minutes. An example has been made. A soldier slides from his saddle and vomits. #Quote by Hilary Mantel
Law Is quotes by Hans Jonas
#153. The will to set values and the power to make them law are jointly at the bottom of all operative norms. When linked to divine wisdom, this source of moral law is still in safe hands which man can trust. #Quote by Hans Jonas

Law Is quotes by Criss Jami
#157. Of course, if one does not fully trust the promise of God's Kingdom, he will have a hard time taking risks and making sacrifices in this life. A gospel centered around the temporal self - fleeting happiness, earthly success, vain prosperity, things such as these - is the primary ambition of the half-hearted Christian; the one who somewhat believes he is subject to an eternal death; the one who just might believe in men before God, who morbidly fears seeming less than anyone else. The man of this school feels deeply that he has but one life to live, that this must be his only chance, and therefore must have it all in his favor - from glory to comfort to riches - and have it right this instant. He is but hinting that he is overcome because he insists always that he must overcome, that his judgment comes now and by the persons around him. The point is, however, in this sense, that by grace the Christian is indeed free, but only for as long as he wants to be free - the practicality of true freedom: that of God which offers not so much freedom to be like the world as it does freedom from the pressures of having to be like the world. For Divine Law is based solely on love and freedom; whereas secular law, pressure and imitation. #Quote by Criss Jami
Law Is quotes by Edgar Cayce
#158. In the beginning all souls were as a unity to the God-Force. As self added or subtracted that which was in keeping with God's purpose, ye added or subtracted from the blessings ye might be conscious of in materiality. Thus karma is builded. And the law is perfect - what ye sow, ye reap. #Quote by Edgar Cayce
Law Is quotes by Olaf Stapledon
#159. We have no government and no laws, if by law is meant a stereotyped convention supported by force, and not to be altered without the aid of cumbersome machinery. #Quote by Olaf Stapledon
Law Is quotes by Robert Penn Warren
#160. No, the Boss corrected, I'm not a lawyer. I know some law ... but I'm not a lawyer. That's why I can see what the law is like. It's like a single-bed blanket on a double bed and three folks in the bed and a cold night. There ain't ever enough blanket to cover the case, no matter how much pulling and hauling, and somebody is always going to nigh catch pneumonia. Hell, the law is like the pants you bought last year for a growing boy, but it is always this year and the seams are popped and the shankbone's to the breeze. The law is always too short and too tight for growing humankind. The best you can do is do something and then make up some law to fit and by the time that law gets on the books you would have done something different. #Quote by Robert Penn Warren
Law Is quotes by Fukuzawa Yukichi
#161. Therefore, to teach them [women] at least an outline of economics and law is the first requirement after giving them a general education. Figuratively speaking, it will be like providing the women of civilized society with a pocket dagger for self-protection. #Quote by Fukuzawa Yukichi
Law Is quotes by Rousas John Rushdoony
#162. The basic function of law is to restrain (Rom. 13:1-4) not to regenerate, and when the function of the law is changed from the restraint of evil to the regeneration of man and society, then law itself begins to break down, because an impossible burden is being placed upon it ... Only as we return to a Biblical foundation for law shall we again have a return to justice and order under law. #Quote by Rousas John Rushdoony
Law Is quotes by Alan Dershowitz
#163. Law is an imperfect profession in which success can rarely be achieved without some sacrifice of principle. Thus all practicing lawyers
and most others in the profession
will necessarily be imperfect, especially in the eyes of young idealists. There is no perfect justice, just as there is no absolute in ethics. But there is perfect injustice, and we know it when we see it. #Quote by Alan Dershowitz
Law Is quotes by Mark Lilla
#164. Equal protection under the law is not a hard principle to convince Americans of. The difficulty comes in persuading them that it has been violated in particular cases, and of the need to redress the wrong. Prejudice and indifference run deep. Education, social reform, and political action can persuade some. But most people will not feel the sufferings of others unless they feel, even in an abstract way, that 'it could have been me or someone close to me'. Consider the astonishingly rapid transformation of American attitudes toward homosexuality and even gay marriage over the past decades. Gay activism brought these issues to public attention but attitudes were changed during tearful conversations over dinner tables across American when children came out to their parents (and, sometimes, parents came out to their children). Once parents began to accept their children, extended families did too, and today same-sex marriages are celebrated across the country with all the pomp and joy and absurd overspending of traditional American marriages. Race is a wholly different matter. Given the segregation in American society white families have little chance of seeing and therefore understanding the lives of black Americans. I am not black male motorist and never will be. All the more reason, then, that I need some way to identify with one if I am going to be affected by his experience. And citizenship is the only thing I know we share. The more differences between us are emphasized, th #Quote by Mark Lilla

Law Is quotes by Martin Luther
#166. A just law is a man-made code that squares with the moral law or the law of God. An unjust law is a code that is out of harmony with the moral law. To put it in the terms of Saint Thomas Aquinas, an unjust law is a human law that is not rooted in eternal and natural law. #Quote by Martin Luther
Law Is quotes by Vaclav Havel
#167. The law is only one of several imperfect and more or less external ways of defending what is better in life against what is worse. By itself, the law can never create anything better. Establishing respect for the law does not automatically ensure a better life for that, after all, is a job for people and not for laws and institutions. #Quote by Vaclav Havel
Law Is quotes by David James Duncan
#168. Religious laws, in all the major religious traditions, have both a letter and a spirit. As I understand the words and example of Jesus, the spirit of the law is all-important whereas the letter, while useful ... becomes lifeless and deadly without it. In accord with this distinction a yearning to worship on wilderness ridges or beside rivers rather than in churches could legitimately be called evangelical ... if your words or deeds harmonize with the example of Jesus, you are evangelical in spirit whether you claim to be or not. When the non-Christian Ambrose Bierce wrote, "War is the means by which Americans learn geography," his words are aimed at the same antiwar end as "Blessed are the peacemakers. #Quote by David James Duncan
Law Is quotes by Lisa Lutz
#169. The next week she withheld my paycheck until I signed a document (drafted by David) in which I promised not to marry Connor. Ever. I signed the document, took the check, and had David draft another document forbidding all Spellmans to practice any form of blackmail. David tried to explain to me that a contract in which you promise not to break the law is ultimately redundant, but I didn't care. #Quote by Lisa Lutz
Law Is quotes by William O. Douglas
#170. When a legislature undertakes to proscribe the exercise of a citizen's constitutional rights it acts lawlessly and the citizen can take matters into his own hands and proceed on the basis that such a law is no law at all. #Quote by William O. Douglas
Law Is quotes by Robert H. Jackson
#171. The privilege of opening the first trial in history for crimes against the peace of the world imposes a grave responsibility. The wrongs which we seek to condemn and punish have been so calculated, so malignant and so devastating, that civilization cannot tolerate their being ignored because it cannot survive their being repeated. That four great nations, flushed with victory and stung with injury stay the hand of vengeance and voluntarily submit their captive enemies to the judgment of the law is one of the most significant tributes that Power ever has paid to Reason. #Quote by Robert H. Jackson

Law Is quotes by Robert Collier
#174. The essence of this law is that you must think abundance; see abundance, feel abundance, believe abundance. Let no thought of limitation enter your mind. #Quote by Robert Collier
Law Is quotes by Theodore Roosevelt
#175. The great lawyer who employs his talent and his learning in the highly emunerative task of enabling a very wealthy client to override or circumvent the law is doing all that in him lies to encourage the growth in the country of a spirit of dumb anger against all laws and of disbelief in their efficacy. #Quote by Theodore Roosevelt
Law Is quotes by Carver Mead
#176. Moore's Law is really a thing about human activity, it's about vision, it's about what you're allowed to believe. Because people are really limited by their beliefs, they limit themselves by what they allow themselves to believe about what is possible. #Quote by Carver Mead

Law Is quotes by Ayn Rand
#184. The first right on earth is the right of the ego. Man's first duty is to himself. His moral law is never to place his prime goal within the persons of others. His moral obligation is to do what he wishes, provided his wish does not depend primarily upon other men. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Law Is quotes by Harper Lee
#185. The law is what he lives by. He'll do his best to prevent someone from beating up somebody else, then he'll turn around and try to stop no less than the Federal Government - just like you, child. You turned and tackled no less than your own tin god - but remember this, he'll always do it by the letter and by the spirit of the law. That's the way he lives. #Quote by Harper Lee

Law Is quotes by Witness Lee
#188. God's righteousness has nothing to do with the law. We can never obtain God's righteousness by going to the law. As far as God's righteousness is concerned, the law is over. The law was the old dispensation. Now without law, apart from the law, the righteousness of God has been manifested through faith of Jesus Christ. #Quote by Witness Lee
Law Is quotes by Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

#200. Life's only law is change. Everything is continuously changing, evolving and developing. Hindus say that it takes 840 million lives to become a human being, which emphasises the precious gift of being a human being. #Quote by Swami Dhyan Giten

Law Is quotes by Edith Wharton
#209. As she stood there, in her long sealskin coat, her hands thrust in a small round muff, her veil drawn down like a transparent mask to the tip of her nose, and the bunch of violets he had brought her stirring with her quickly-taken breath, it seemed incredible that this pure harmony of line and colour should ever suffer the stupid law of change. #Quote by Edith Wharton
Law Is quotes by Ludwig Feuerbach
#210. The law holds man in bondage; love makes him free. #Quote by Ludwig Feuerbach
Law Is quotes by Gucci Mane
#211. I value my core fans I got from the hood. I think a lot of things might hit home with them, like problems with the law or how I talk about partying - all the different topics I cover when I do rap. But I also value my suburban fans who take a liking to my music and like the way I change cadences. I appreciate all of them cause both types of fans push me to record all the time, both push me to give my best when I do a show. Both push me to be the best rapper and not just do it as a hobby, but do it as a job and take it seriously and put pride in it. #Quote by Gucci Mane

Law Is quotes by Alfred Noyes
#219. The story of scientific discovery has its own epic unity-a unity of purpose and endeavour-the single torch passing from hand to hand through the centuries; and the great moments of science when, after long labour, the pioneers saw their accumulated facts falling into a significant order-sometimes in the form of a law that revolutionised the whole world of thought-have an intense human interest, and belong essentially to the creative imagination of poetry. #Quote by Alfred Noyes
Law Is quotes by Wolfgang Schauble
#220. I can't think of many other laws we might need. For now, though, we'll be talking to German Muslims over issues of coexistence. #Quote by Wolfgang Schauble
Law Is quotes by James Hilton
#221. Aunt Viney (short for 'Lavinia'), viewed in the grey daylight that came in through the dining-room window, was always a rather imposing spectacle. She was fifty-one years of age, and had large staring eyes, quick bustling movements, more than a tendency to stoutness, a menacing optimism that was not quite matched by a sense of humour, and the most decided opinions upon everything. She was an excellent 'manager', and for more than a decade had lived at the Manse with her sister and brother-in-law and their children (there had been boys at one time), looking after them all with undoubted if rather relentless competence. #Quote by James Hilton
Law Is quotes by Paul Ricoeur
#222. The moral law commands us to make the highest possible good in a world the final object of all our conduct. #Quote by Paul Ricoeur
Law Is quotes by Kit Bond
#223. While I support immigration regulated through a legal framework, I do not support rewarding those who broke the law to get here. #Quote by Kit Bond
Law Is quotes by Newt Gingrich

Law Is quotes by Kathleen Sears

Law Is quotes by Geert Wilders
#227. 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 Is quotes by Jim Cooper
#228. Aging nations have arteries clogged with obsolete laws, slowing blood flow and preventing oxygen from reaching all parts of the body politic. Physicians call this arteriosclerosis; historians see decline of empire. #Quote by Jim Cooper

Law Is quotes by William Walker Atkinson

Law Is quotes by Elena Kagan
#231. I think people are great in many different ways. So, I think some justices are great because they have extraordinary wisdom, they have an understanding of how to apply the law in their times ... in a way that's completely consistent with ... the text of the law and the purposes of the law, and in a way that's completely right for the times in which they live in. #Quote by Elena Kagan
Law Is quotes by Wernher Von Braun
#232. In this age of space flight when we use the modern tools of science to advance into new regions of human activity, the Bible ... remains in every way an up to date book. Our knowledge and use of the laws of nature that enable us to fly to the moon, also enable us to destroy our home planet with the atom bomb. Science itself does not address the question whether we should use the power at our disposal for good or for evil. The guidelines of what we ought to do are furnished in the moral Law of God. #Quote by Wernher Von Braun
Law Is quotes by Siri Mitchell
#233. The problem wasn't drinking. The problem was people. And what they needed wasn't a new law; what they needed was a new heart. #Quote by Siri Mitchell
Law Is quotes by Stephen Richards

Law Is quotes by Charles F. Glassman
#236. Although to our automatic brain, change always means potential danger. In order to calm that brain, it means embracing change so to turn on the light in our mind and open the door to our true potential. #Quote by Charles F. Glassman
