            —Confucius

  Justice is like the Kingdom of God: It is not without us as a fact; it is within us as a great yearning.
            —George Eliot

  As honor, just.
            —David Mallet

  Human justice, like Luther’s drunken peasant, when saved from falling on one side, topples over on the other.
            —Guiseppe Mazzini

Justice, like lightning, ever should appear;
To few men ruin, but to all men fear.
            —Thomas Randolph
