Consider further, most foolish Socrates, that the just is always a loser in comparison with the unjust.

If these ultimate human values by which we live are to be pursued, then compromises, trade-offs, arrangements have to be made if the worst is not to happen. So much liberty for so much equality, so much individual self-expression for so much security, so much justice for so much compassion.
Isaiah Berlin

If we do not maintain justice, justice will not maintain us.
Francis Bacon

It is just to do good to our friends when they are good and harm to our enemies when they are evil?

Justice is an art of theft; to be practised however `for the good of friends and for the harm of enemies,'

Justice without force is powerless; force without justice is tyrannical.
Blaise Pascal

Justice. To be ever ready to admit that another person is something quite different from what we read when he is there (or when we think about him)... Every being cries out silently to be read differently.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
