Quotations on Justice




“There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest.”

                                                                      Elie Wiesel



“No man is justified in doing evil on the ground of expediency.”

                                                                      Theodore Roosevelt



“When will our consciences grow so tender that we will act to prevent human misery rather than avenge it?”

                                                                       Eleanor Roosevelt


“An injustice to one person is a crime against everyone, and we must always try to achieve true justice in the world.”

                                                                     Charles F. French

  1. I always liked the final debate scene from the movie, “The Great Debaters” movie – that discusses Justice, Civil Disobedience, individual responsibility, ‘moral’, rule of law, etc. This is the link to the 9:58 minutes long clip – that to me, illustrates both a time in history, a focus, on those not served/protected by the law, but the points made? Timeless – no matter ‘which group’ has no standing in the eyes of the ‘law’ at a moment in time.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-3wxBJ9v7qM
