36 Law and Lawyers Quotes from Literature

Laws and principles are not for the times when there is no temptation: they are for such moments as this, when body and soul rise in mutiny against their rigour; stringent are they; inviolate they shall be. If at my individual convenience I might break them, what would be their worth? ~ Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte "God's law is only Love." ~ A Woman of No Importance by Oscar Wilde A good conscience is never lawless in the worst regulated state, and will provide those laws for itself, which the neglect of legislators hath forgotten to supply. ~ Tom Jones by Henry Fielding Do as adversaries do in law,
Strive mightily, but eat and drink as friends. ~ The Taming of the Shrew by William Shakespeare In one respect at least the Martians are a happy people; they have no lawyers. ~ A Princess of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs "All men are fortune-hunters, are they not? The law, the church, the court, the camp—see how they are all crowded with fortune-hunters, jostling each other in the pursuit." ~ Barnaby Rudge by Charles Dickens But the Law is still, in certain inevitable cases, the pre-engaged servant of the long purse. ~ The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins "Like the British Constitution, she owes her success in practice to her inconsistencies in principle." ~ The Hand of Ethelberta by Thomas Hardy "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 For, according to our old saying, the three learned professions live by roguery on the three parts of a man. The doctor mauls our bodies; the parson starves our souls, but the lawyer must be the adroitest knave, for he has to ensnare our minds. ~ Lorna Doone by R. D. Blackmore
