“For there is but one essential justice which cements society, and one law which establishes this justice. This law is right reason, which is the true rule of all commandments and prohibitions. Whoever neglects this law, whether written or unwritten, is necessarily unjust and wicked.”
― Marcus Tullius Cicero, On the Laws

“I have always found that mercy bears richer fruits than strict justice.”
―Abraham Lincoln

“The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice.”
― Martin Luther King Jr.
