Inspiring Equal Justice

  • Where justice is denied, where poverty is enforced, where ignorance prevails, and where any one class is made to feel that society is an organized conspiracy to oppress, rob and degrade them, neither persons nor property will be safe

    Frederick Douglas

  • At his best, man is the noblest of all animals; separated from law and justice he is the worst

    Aristotle

  • All the great things are simple, and many can be expressed in a single word: freedom, justice, honor, duty, mercy, hope
