JUSTICE - The constant and perpetual disposition to render every man his due. Justinian, Inst. b. 1, tit. 1; Co. 2d Inst. 56.
[Bouvier's Law Dictionary (1856)]

"Justice is the end of government. It is the end of civil society. It ever has been, and ever will be pursued, until it be obtained, or until liberty be lost in the pursuit."
[James Madison, The Federalist No. 51 (1788)]

"The best antidote for crime is justice. The irony we often fail to appreciate is that the more justice people enjoy, the fewer crimes they commit. Crime is the natural offspring of an unjust society."
[Gerry Spence "With Justice For None" p.124]

"That no free Government, or the blessing of liberty, can be preserved to any people but by a firm adherence to justice..."
[George Mason, Virginia Declaration of Rights, (1776)]

"To no one will we sell, to no one will we refuse or delay right or justice."
[Magna Carta, ch. 40 (1215)]
