14 Justice Quotes from Literature

"If you would take a man's life, you owe it to him to look into his eyes and hear his final words. And if you cannot bear to do that, then perhaps the man does not deserve to die." ~ A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin Every human institution (justice included) will stretch a little, if you only pull it the right way. ~ The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins But injustice breeds injustice; the fighting with shadows and being defeated by them necessitates the setting up of substances to combat. ~ Bleak House by Charles Dickens "Circumstantial evidence," continued the young man, as if he scarcely heard Lady Audley's interruption-"that wonderful fabric which is built out of straws collected at every point of the compass, and which is yet strong enough to hang a man." ~ Lady Audley's Secret by Mary Elizabeth Braddon "A book," I observed, "might be written on the Injustice of the Just." ~ Dolly Dialogues by Anthony Hope The book of female logic is blotted all over with tears, and Justice in their courts is for ever in a passion. ~ The Virginians by William Makepeace Thackeray "The pressure of public opinion can do in the town what the law cannot accomplish. There is no lane so vile that the scream of a tortured child, or the thud of a drunkard's blow, does not beget sympathy and indignation among the neighbors, and then the whole machinery of justice is ever so close that a word of complaint can set it going, and there is but a step between the crime and the dock. But look at these lonely houses, each in its own fields, filled for the most part with poor ignorant folk who know little of the law. Think of the deeds of hellish cruelty, the hidden wickedness which may go on, year in, year out, in such places, and none the wiser." ~ The Adventure of the Copper Beeches by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Conscience is a coward, and those faults it has not strength enough to prevent, it seldom has justice enough to accuse. ~ The Vicar of Wakefield by Oliver Goldsmith Thwackum was for doing justice, and leaving mercy to heaven. ~ Tom Jones by Henry Fielding Thus, cases of injustice, and oppression, and tyranny, and the most extravagant bigotry, are in constant occurrence among us every day. It is the custom to trumpet forth much wonder and astonishment at the chief actors therein setting at defiance so completely the opinion of the world; but there is no greater fallacy; it is precisely because they do consult the opinion of their own little world that such things take place at all, and strike the great world dumb with amazement. ~ Nicholas Nickleby by Charles Dickens
