A Quote by Desiderius Erasmus on injustice, peace, and war

Scarcely is there any peace so unjust that it is better than even the fairest war. -Vix ulla tam iniqua pax, quin bello vel aequissimo sit potior

A Quote by David J. Wolpe on anguish, children, god, heart, injustice, pain, suffering, and world

There is a marvelous story of a man who once stood before God, his heart breaking from the pain and injustice in the world. "Dear God." he cried out, "look at all the suffering, the anguish and distress in your world. Why don't you send help?" God responded,"I did send help. I sent you." When we tell our children that story, we must tell them that each one of them was sent to help repair the broken world-and that it is not the task of an instant or of a year, but of a lifetime.

David J. Wolpe

A Quote by Dale Carnegie on compliments, criticism, death, envy, and injustice

Unjust criticism is usually disguised compliment. It often means that you have aroused jealously and envy. Remember that no one ever kicks a dead log.

A Quote by Claude Frédéric Bastiat on conscience, defense, destruction, education, freedom, heart, individuality, injustice, labor, laws, liberty, people, politics, struggle, trade, travel, and world

Actually, what is the political struggle that we witness? It is the instinctive struggle of all people toward liberty. And what is this liberty, whose very name makes the heart beat faster and shakes the world? Is it not the union of all liberties - liberty of conscience, of education, of association, of the press, of travel, of labor, of trade? In short, is not liberty the freedom of every person to make full use of his faculties, so long as he does not harm other persons while doing so? Is not liberty the destruction of all despotism-including, of course, legal despotism? Finally, is not liberty the restricting of the law only to its rational sphere of organizing the right of the individual to lawful self-defense; of punishing injustice?

A Quote by Claude Frédéric Bastiat on force, government, injustice, justice, laws, organize, revolution, simplicity, and thought

Law is justice. In this proposition a simple and enduring government can be conceived. And I defy anyone to say how even the thought of revolution, of insurrection, of the slightest uprising could arise against a government whose organized force was confined only to suppressing injustice.

A Quote by Clarence Seward Darrow on belief, injustice, past, present, and world

The objector and the rebel who raises his voice against what he believes to be the injustice of the present and the wrongs of the past is the one who hunches the world along.

A Quote by Marcus Tullius Cicero on injustice, justice, peace, and war

I cease not to advocate peace; even though unjust it is better than the most just war.

A Quote by Carl Gustav Jung on education, good, hypocrisy, injustice, learning, love, men, neighbors, people, respect, tolerance, understanding, and violence

If people can be educated to see the lowly side of their own natures, it may be hoped that they will also learn to understand and to love their fellow men better. A little less hypocrisy and a little more tolerance towards oneself can only have good results in respect for our neighbor; for we are all too prone to transfer to our fellows the injustice and violence we inflict upon our own natures.

Carl Jung (1875 - 1961)

A Quote by Baltasar Gracian on injustice

It is better to have too much courtesy than too little, provided you are not equally courteous to all, for that would be injustice.
