Seldeen Law quotes by Nikita Mikhalkov

"The law comes before everything, but what's to be done if the mercy comes before the law? #Quote by Nikita Mikhalkov
Seldeen Law quotes by Jon Meacham
#2. We are exceptional not because of who we are but because of what we do and how we put the ideals of human dignity, individual freedom, and liberty under law into action. #Quote by Jon Meacham
Seldeen Law quotes by Muhammad Qasim Zaman
#3. In contemporary parlance, the term Salafi has come to acquire many different connotations. It has been used to refer to some groups who consider it obligatory to take up arms against all those - non-Muslims and Muslims - who are deemed to challenge or contravene the dictates of the Islamic foundational texts, the Qur'an and the normative example of the Prophet Muhammad (the sunna). At the other end of spectrum, it refers to a politically quietist trend, typified by the Saudi religious establishment, that rejects all beliefs and practices seen as compromising the oneness of God (tawhid) while leaving politics largely to the rulling elite. But the term Salafi is also used for, and by, those who reject the authority of the medieval schools of law and insist on an unmediated access to the foundational texts as the source of all norms. #Quote by Muhammad Qasim Zaman
Seldeen Law quotes by Jonathan Zittrain
#4. The last refuge of privacy cannot be placed solely in law or technology. It must repose in both, and a thoughtful combination of the two can help us thread a path between having all our secrets trivially discoverable and preserving nothing for our later selves for fear of that discovery. #Quote by Jonathan Zittrain
Seldeen Law quotes by Gloria Steinem
#5. I sat at a lunch table with a professor of premonotheistic spirituality, plus several women from some of the tribes in this state that has more Native Americans than any other. All agreed that the paradigm of human organization had been the circle, not the pyramid or hierarchy - and it could be again.

I'd never known there was a paradigm that linked instead of ranked. It was as if I'd been assuming opposition - and suddenly found myself in a welcoming world; like putting one's foot down for a steep stair and discovering level ground.

Still, when a Laguna law student from New Mexico complained that her courses didn't cite the Iroquois Confederacy as the model for the U.S. Constitution - or explain that this still existing Confederacy was the oldest continuing democracy in the world - I thought she was being romantic. But I read about the Constitutional Convention and discovered that Benjamin Franklin had indeed cited the Iroquois Confederacy as a model. He was well aware of its success in unifying vast areas of the United States and Canada by bringing together Native nations for mutual decisions but also allowing autonomy in local ones. He hoped the Constitution could do the same for the thirteen states. That's why he invited two Iroquois men to Philadelphia as advisers. Among their first questions was said to be: Where are the women? #Quote by Gloria Steinem
Seldeen Law quotes by Dick Cheney
#6. It will be necessary for us to be a nation of men, and not laws. #Quote by Dick Cheney
Seldeen Law quotes by Michelle Alexander
#7. No other country in the world disenfranchises people who are released from prison in a manner even remotely resembling the United States. In fact, the United Nations Human Rights Committee has charged that U.S. disenfranchisement policies are discriminatory and violate international law. #Quote by Michelle Alexander
Seldeen Law quotes by Thorstein Veblen
#8. In point of substantial merit the law school belongs in the modern university no more than a school of fencing or dancing. #Quote by Thorstein Veblen
Seldeen Law quotes by Harlan F. Stone
#9. If a juror feels that the statute involved in any criminal offence is unfair, or that it infringes upon the defendant's natural god-given unalienable or constitutional rights, then it is his duty to affirm that the offending statute is really no law at all and that the violation of it is no crime at all, for no one is bound to obey an unjust law. #Quote by Harlan F. Stone
Seldeen Law quotes by Polybius
#10. In the natural, spontaneous course of events, the first [political] system to arise is monarchy, and this is followed by kingship, but it takes the deliberate correction of the defects of monarchy for it to develop into kingship. Kingship changes into its congenital vice--that is, into tyranny--and then it is the turn of aristocracy, after the dissolution of tyranny, Aristocracy necessarily degenerates into oligarchy, and when the general populace gets impassioned enough to seek redress for the crimes committed by their leaders, democracy is born. And in due course of time, once democracy turns to violating and breaking the law, mob-rule arises and completes the series. #Quote by Polybius
Seldeen Law quotes by Jacob G. Hornberger
#11. [T]ake the war on drugs. The average American says, "The war on drugs has been beneficial." The rest of us see reality. This war has destroyed thousands of Americans. It is also a pretext for government agents to rob innocent people in airports and on the highways - they seize and confiscate large amounts of cash and say to their victims: "Sue us if you don't like it." And more and more judges, politicians, intelligence agents, and law-enforcement officers are on the take - as dependent on the drug-war largess as the drug lords themselves. #Quote by Jacob G. Hornberger
Seldeen Law quotes by Donald Jeffries
#12. The record is replete with witnesses reporting that they were intimidated
by various authorities. Could all of them, unconnected and unknown to
each other, be having the same fantasies? And if the threats were real, the
obvious question is: why would any law enforcement officer at any level,
or any anonymous phone caller, for that matter, threaten someone if the
assassination was the result of a random act by a lone nut that was no longer
alive? But this is akin to asking why any information about the murder
of John F. Kennedy was ever withheld, let alone still withheld after fifty
years, on the grounds of "national security" if Lee Harvey Oswald was a
minimum-wage loser, with no conspirators, who was out to impress his
estranged wife. #Quote by Donald Jeffries
Seldeen Law quotes by Jack Canfield
#13. The Law of Probabilities: the more things you try, the more likely one of them will work. #Quote by Jack Canfield
Seldeen Law quotes by Bob Odenkirk
#14. My godfather was a Chicago policeman, and I've always looked at law enforcement as a challenging and interesting job. #Quote by Bob Odenkirk
Seldeen Law quotes by Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
#15. The thing I want to do is put as many new ideas into the law as I can, to show how particular solutions involve general theory, and to do it with style. I should like to be admitted to be the greatest jurist in the world. #Quote by Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
Seldeen Law quotes by Swami Vivekananda
#16. Society is an organism which obeys the immutable law of progress; and change, judicious and cautious change, is necessary for the well being, and indeed the preservation of the social system. #Quote by Swami Vivekananda
Seldeen Law quotes by Learned Hand
#17. It lies in the hearts of men and women; when it dies there, no constitution, no law, no court can save it. While it lies there, it needs no constitution, no law, no court to save it. #Quote by Learned Hand
Seldeen Law quotes by Robert H. Jackson
#18. 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 has ever paid to Reason. #Quote by Robert H. Jackson
Seldeen Law quotes by Howard Zinn
#19. But by this time I was acutely conscious of the gap between law and justice. I knew that the letter of the law was not as important as who held the power in any real-life situation. #Quote by Howard Zinn
Seldeen Law quotes by Ayn Rand
#20. There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Seldeen Law quotes by Iain Banks
#21. One of the advantages of having laws is the pleasure one may take in breaking them. We here are not children, Mr. Gurgeh." Hamin waved the pipestem round the tables of people. "Rules and laws exist only because we take pleasure in doing what they forbid, but as long as most of the people obey such proscriptions most of the time, they have done their job; blind obedience would imply we are ha!" Hamin chuckled and pointed at the drone with the pipe "no more than robots! #Quote by Iain Banks
Seldeen Law quotes by Will Rogers
#22. The minute you read something that you can't understand, you can almost be sure that it was drawn up by a lawyer. #Quote by Will Rogers
Seldeen Law quotes by Philip Yancey
#23. Many churches offer more entertainment than worship, more uniformity than diversity, more exclusivity than outreach, more law than grace. #Quote by Philip Yancey
Seldeen Law quotes by Sri Mulyani Indrawati
#24. In Indonesia, where I am from, the Dutch-imposed Civil Code dating back to the colonial 1870s prevailed until the 1974 Law on Marriage granted married women greater rights, including the ability to open individual bank accounts. #Quote by Sri Mulyani Indrawati
Seldeen Law quotes by Livy
#25. Indeed, that is the nature of crowds: the mob is either a humble slave or a cruel aster. As for the middle way of liberty, the mob can neither take it nor keep it with any respect for moderation or law. #Quote by Livy
Seldeen Law quotes by Stephen King
#26. Cats are the gangsters of the animal world, living outside the law and often dying there #Quote by Stephen King
Seldeen Law quotes by Gary Shteyngart
#27. This would be the worst birthday of his life. Vladimir's best friend Baobab was down in Florida covering his rent, doing unspeakable things with unmentionable people. Mother, roused by the meager achievements of Vladimir's first quarter-century, was officially on the warpath. And, in possibly the worst development yet, 1993 was the Year of the Girlfriend. A downcast, heavyset American girlfriend whose bright orange hair was strewn across his Alphabet City hovel as if cadre of Angora rabbits had visited. A girlfriend whose sickly-sweet incense and musky perfume coated Vladimir's unwashed skin, perhaps to remind him of what he could expect on this, the night of his birthday: Sex. Every week, once a week, they had to have sex, as both he and this large pale woman, this Challah, perceived that without weekly sex their relationship would fold up according to some unspecified law of relationships. #Quote by Gary Shteyngart
Seldeen Law quotes by Lucille Roybal-Allard
#28. The lessons of September 11 are that if we allow law enforcement to do their work free of political interference, if we give them adequate resources and modern technologies, we can protect our citizens without intruding on our liberties. #Quote by Lucille Roybal-Allard
Seldeen Law quotes by Ransom Stoddard
#29. Education is the basis of law and order. #Quote by Ransom Stoddard
Seldeen Law quotes by Russel Kirk
#30. The only true forms of equality are equality at the Last Judgment and equality before a just court of law; all other attempts at levelling must lead, at best, to social stagnation. #Quote by Russel Kirk
Seldeen Law quotes by Bobby F. Kimbrough Jr.
#31. This is not a Black problem. It is not a white problem. It is not a police problem. It is a WE problem. We the people, for the people. It is going to take all of us being transparent in order to transform. #Quote by Bobby F. Kimbrough Jr.
Seldeen Law quotes by Anonymous
#32. The new law forbids foreign funding for imams and mosques, a restriction that does not apply to Christian or Jewish places of worship. #Quote by Anonymous
Seldeen Law quotes by Joseph B.H. McMillan
#33. When Friedrich Nietzsche mocked Immanuel Kant for having "discovered a moral faculty in man", he inadvertently resolved Kant's dilemma of being unable to identify what exactly constituted his "moral law" for fear of offending against a charge of empiricism from the likes of David Hume. #Quote by Joseph B.H. McMillan
Seldeen Law quotes by Alan Lightman
#34. Order is the law of nature, the universal trend, the cosmic direction. If time is an arrow, that arrow points toward order. The future is pattern, organization, union, intensification; the past, randomness, confusion, disintegration, dissipation. #Quote by Alan Lightman
Seldeen Law quotes by Robert Peel
#35. The police are the public and the public are the police; the police being only members of the public who are paid to give full time attention to duties which are incumbent on every citizen in the interests of community welfare and existence. #Quote by Robert Peel
Seldeen Law quotes by Jeaniene Frost
#36. Called to give you the good news. I asked our daughter to marry me and she accepted. Congratulations, I will officially your son-in-law. Now, do you want me to call you zmum straightaway, or wait until after the wedding?"
I lew through the ir in a dive tht finally tackled him, wrenching the phone away. Bones was laughing so hard he had to breathe to get it all out.
"Mom? Are you there? Mom ... ?"
"You might want to give her a moment, Kitten. I believe she fainted. #Quote by Jeaniene Frost
Seldeen Law quotes by Bonar Law
#37. If I am a great man, then all great men are frauds. #Quote by Bonar Law
Seldeen Law quotes by Bruce Lee
#38. A self-willed man obeys a different law, the one law I, too, hold absolutely sacred the human law in himself, his own individual will. #Quote by Bruce Lee
Seldeen Law quotes by Anthony Romero
#39. It's disingenuous and wrong to say that the attorney general's expanded powers in the Patriot Act come with adequate oversight by the courts, ... In reality, the most troubling provisions in the law make judges little more than rubber stamps in Justice Department investigations. #Quote by Anthony Romero
Seldeen Law quotes by Sigmund Freud
#40. There is scarcely room for doubt that something in the psychological relation of a mother-in-law to a son-in-law breeds hostility between them and makes it hard for them to live together. But the fact that in civilized societies mothers-in-law are such a favourite subject for jokes seems to me to suggest that the emotional relation involved includes sharply contrasted components. I believe, that is, that this relation is in fact an 'ambivalent' one, composed of conflicting affectionate and hostile impulses. #Quote by Sigmund Freud
Seldeen Law quotes by Jodi Picoult
#41. What good is the legal process if people can decide their motives are bigger than the law? #Quote by Jodi Picoult
Seldeen Law quotes by Marco Rubio
#42. That may not be a majority position in my party, but that's down the road. You can't even begin that process until you prove to people - not just pass a law that says you're gonna bring illegal immigration under control. You're gonna have to do it and prove to people that it's working. #Quote by Marco Rubio
Seldeen Law quotes by Bertrand Russell
#43. It seems clear to me that marriage ought to be constituted by children, and relations not involving children ought to be ignored by the law and treated as indifferent by public opinion. It is only through children that relations cease to be a purely private matter. #Quote by Bertrand Russell
Seldeen Law quotes by Terry Pratchett
#44. Cuddy had only been a guard for a few days, but already he had absorbed one important and basic fact: it is almost impossible for anyone to be in a street without breaking the law. There are a whole quiverful of offenses available to a policeman who wishes to pass the time of day with a citizen, ranging from Loitering with Intent through Obstruction to Lingering While Being the Wrong Color/Shape/Species/Sex. It occurred briefly to him that anyone not making a dash for it when they saw Detritus knuckling along at high speed behind them was probably guilty of contravening the Being Bloody Stupid Act of 1581. But it was too late to take that into account. Someone was running, and they were chasing. They were chasing because he was running, and he was running because they were chasing. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Seldeen Law quotes by Questlove
#45. My life's goal is to find a happy medium for sampling to be not only legal but for the right parties to benefit from it. There have to be sampling laws. The survival of hiphop is based on that. #Quote by Questlove
Seldeen Law quotes by Petr Beckmann
#46. Rome was not the first state of organized gangsterdom, nor was it the last; but it was the only one that managed to bamboozle posterity into an almost universal admiration. Few rational men admire the Huns, the Nazis or the Soviets; but for centuries, schoolboys have been expected to read Julius Caesar's militaristic drivel ("We inflicted heavy losses upon the enemy, our own casualties being very light") and Cato's revolting incitements to war. They have been led to believe that the Romans had attained an advanced level in the sciences, the arts, law, architecture, engineering and everything else. It is my opinion that the alleged Roman achievements are largely a myth; and I feel it is time for this myth to be debunked a little. What the Romans excelled in was bullying, bludgeoning, butchering and blood baths. Like the Soviet Empire, the Roman Empire enslaved peoples whose cultural level was far above their own. They not only ruthlessly vandalized their countries, but they also looted them, stealing their art treasures, abducting their scientists and copying their technical know-how, which the Romans' barren society was rarely able to improve on. No wonder, then, that Rome was filled with great works of art. But the light of culture which Rome is supposed to have emanated was a borrowed light: borrowed from the Greeks and the other peoples that the Roman militarists had enslaved. #Quote by Petr Beckmann
