laws

A strict observance of the written laws is doubtless one of the high virtues of a good citizen, but it is not the highest. The laws of necessity, of self-preservation, of saving our country when in danger, are of higher obligation.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Where it is a duty to worship the sun it is pretty sure to be a crime to examine the laws of heat.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I am mindful of the difference between the executive branch and the legislative branch. I assured all four of these leaders that I know the difference, and that difference is they pass the laws and I execute them.(Dec. 20, 2000)More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I anticipate with pleasing expectations that retreat in which I promise myself to realize, without alloy, the sweet enjoyment of partaking, in the midst of my fellow citizens, the benign influence of good laws under a free government, the ever favorite object of my heart, and the happy reward, as I trust, of our mutual cares, labors, and dangers.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Opinions alter, manners change, creeds rise and fall, but the moral laws are written on the table of eternity.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
That man is a creature who needs order yet yearns for change is the creative contradiction at the heart of the laws which structure his conformity and define his deviancy.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Every ruler is harsh whose laws is new.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The new always happens against the overwhelming odds of statistical laws and their probability, which for all practical, everyday purposes amounts to certainty; the new therefore always appears in the guise of a miracle.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Wise people, even though all laws were abolished, would still lead the same life.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Nor was civil society founded merely to preserve the lives of its members; but that they might live well: for otherwise a state might be composed of slaves, or the animal creation... nor is it an alliance mutually to defend each other from injuries, or for a commercial intercourse. But whosoever endeavors to establish wholesome laws in a state, attends to the virtues and vices of each individual who composes it; from whence it is evident, that the first care of him who would found a city, truly deserving that name, and not nominally so, must be to have his citizens virtuous.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
No nation, no matter how enlightened, can endure criminal violence. If we cannot control it, we are admitting to the world and to ourselves that our laws are no more than a facade that crumbles when the winds of crisis rise.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We gain our ends only with the laws of nature; we control her only by understanding her laws.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
People crushed by laws, have no hope but to evade power. If the laws are their enemies, they will be enemies to the law; and those who have must to hope and nothing to lose will always be dangerous.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Bad laws are the worst form of tyranny.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Our minds can work for us or against us at any given moment. We can learn to accept and live with the natural psychological laws that govern us, understanding how to flow with life rather than struggle against it. We can return to our natural state of contentment.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Strange and predatory and truly dangerous, car thieves and muggers -- they seem to jeopardize all our cherished concepts, even our self-esteem, our property rights, our powers of love, our laws and pleasures. The only relationship we seem to have with them is scorn or bewilderment, but they belong somewhere on the dark prairies of a country that is in the throes of self-discovery.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
But men never violate the laws of God without suffering the consequences, sooner or later.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Language is a process of free creation; its laws and principles are fixed, but the manner in which the principles of generation are used is free and infinitely varied. Even the interpretation and use of words involves a process of free creation.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Money is plentiful for those who understand the simple laws which govern its acquisition.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
As it must not, so genius cannot be lawless; for it is even that constitutes its genius -- the power of acting creatively under laws of its own origination.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
When men are pure, laws are useless; when men are corrupt, laws are broken.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I know this world is ruled by infinite intelligence. Everything that surrounds us- everything that exists -- proves that there are infinite laws behind it. There can be no denying this fact. It is mathematical in its precision.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Science has sometimes been said to be opposed to faith, and inconsistent with it. But all science, in fact, rests on a basis of faith, for it assumes the permanence and uniformity of natural laws -- a thing which can never be demonstrated.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It should be possible to explain the laws of physics to a barmaid.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Nothing is more destructive of respect for the government and the law of the land than passing laws which cannot be enforced.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
As far as the laws of mathematics refer to reality, they are not certain, and as far as they are certain, they do not refer to reality.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
By his machines man can dive and remain under water like a shark; can fly like a hawk in the air; can see atoms like a gnat; can see the system of the universe of Uriel, the angel of the sun; can carry whatever loads a ton of coal can lift; can knock down cities with his fist of gunpowder; can recover the history of his race by the medals which the deluge, and every creature, civil or savage or brute, has involuntarily dropped of its existence; and divine the future possibility of the planet and its inhabitants by his perception of laws of nature.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The laws of each are convertible into the laws of any other.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Amongst the learned the lawyers claim first place, the most self-satisfied class of people, as they roll their rock of Sisyphus and string together six hundred laws in the same breath, no matter whether relevant or not, piling up opinion on opinion and gloss on gloss to make their profession seem the most difficult of all. Anything which causes trouble has special merit in their eyes.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Our human laws are more or less imperfect copies of the external laws as we see them.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The laws of probability, so true in general, so fallacious in particular.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Good laws make it easier to do right and harder to do wrong.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The English laws punish vice; the Chinese laws do more, they reward virtue.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
In a democracy -- even if it is a so-called democracy like our white-litist one -- the greatest veneration one can show the rule of law is to keep a watch on it, and to reserve the right to judge unjust laws and the subversion of the function of the law by the power of the state. That vigilance is the most important proof of respect for the law.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I know of no method to secure the repeal of bad or obnoxious laws so effective as their strict execution.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If the laws could speak for themselves, they would complain of the lawyers.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
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.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
You treat world history as a mathematician does mathematics, in which nothing but laws and formulas exist, no reality, no good and evil, no time, no yesterday, no tomorrow, nothing but an eternal, shallow, mathematical present.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We should have learnt by now that laws and court decisions can only point the way. They can establish criteria of right and wrong. And they can provide a basis for rooting out the evils of bigotry and racism. But they cannot wipe away centuries of oppression and injustice -- however much we might desire it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Certainly one of the highest duties of the citizen is a scrupulous obedience to the laws of the nation. But it is not the highest duty.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is a power stronger than will. Could a stone escape from the laws of gravity? Impossible. Impossible, for evil to form an alliance with good.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
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.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Miracles do not, in fact, break the laws of nature.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The fundamental laws are in the long run merely statements that every event is itself and not some different event.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The Laws of Nature are just, but terrible. There is no weak mercy in them. Cause and consequence are inseparable and inevitable. The elements have no forbearance. The fire burns, the water drowns, the air consumes, the earth buries. And perhaps it would be well for our race if the punishment of crimes against the Laws of Man were as inevitable as the punishment of crimes against the Laws of Nature --were Man as unerring in his judgments as Nature.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The main foundations of every state, new states as well as ancient or composite ones, are good laws and good arms you cannot have good laws without good arms, and where there are good arms, good laws inevitably follow.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Let the public mind become corrupt, and all efforts to secure property, liberty, or life by the force of laws written on paper will be as vain as putting up a sign in an apple orchard to exclude canker worms.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is absolutely impossible to transcend the laws of nature. What can change in historically different circumstances is only the form in which these laws expose themselves.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The only laws of matter are those that our minds must fabricate and the only laws of mind are fabricated for it by matter.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Useless laws weaken the necessary laws.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There is no nation so powerful, as the one that obeys its laws not from principals of fear or reason, but from passion.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The severity of the laws prevents their execution.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
For this is one of the ancientest laws among them; that no man shall be blamed for reasoning in the maintenance of his own religion.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Like everything else in nature, music is a becoming, and it becomes its full self, when its sounds and laws are used by intelligent man for the production of harmony, and so made the vehicle of emotion and thought.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A wise architect observed that you could break the laws of architectural art provided you had mastered them first. That would apply to religion as well as to art. Ignorance of the past does not guarantee freedom from its imperfections.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

The miracle on earth are the laws of heaven.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
But while they prate of economic laws, men and women are starving. We must lay hold of the fact that economic laws are not made by nature. They are made by human beings.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
