Quote(s) of the day: Ancient Rome week

Today I present two quotes from the great Roman orator, Cicero:

"Justice consists in doing no injury to men; decency in giving them no offense." - Marcus Tullius Cicero

"The more laws, the less justice." - Marcus Tullius Cicero

How often do our lawmakers confuse decency with justice? In so doing, they limit the amount of justice available for all.

One need only look at the sheer volume of our law books to see how little justice there truly is.
