Aristotle

It would then be most admirably adapted to the purposes of justice, if laws properly enacted were, as far as circumstances admitted, of themselves to mark out all cases, and to abandon as few as possible to the discretion of the judge.

Aristotle

Aristotle

Equity is that idea of justice which contravenes the written law.

Aristotle
All teaching and all intellectual learning come about from already existing knowledge.
Aristotle

Of mankind in general, the parts are greater than the whole.

Aristotle
