A Quote by Mao Tse-tung on beginning, companions, pollution, security, and water

While swimming in the heavily polluted rivers of south China, despite the pleadings of his security guards and his physician, he would chide his companions if they began to panic in the water: Maybe you're afraid of sinking, Don't think about it. If you don't think about it, you won't sink. If you do, you will.

A Quote by Justice Louis Dembitz Brandeis on commitment, conviction, crime, government, laws, order, privacy, and security

To declare that in the administration of criminal law the end justifies the means to declare that the Government may commit crimes in order to secure conviction of a private criminal would bring terrible retribution.

A Quote by Thomas Babington, Lord Macaulay on accidents, birth, chance, elections, neighbors, perception, popularity, questions, reason, security, and thinking

We see no reason for thinking that the opinions of the magistrate on speculative questions are more likely to be right than those of any other man. None of the modes by which a magistrate is appointed, popular election, the accident of the lot, or the accident of birth, affords, as far as we can perceive, much security for his being wiser than any of his neighbors. The chance of his being wiser than all his neighbors together is still smaller.

A Quote by Lewis Schwellenbach on laws, mankind, nature, progress, security, society, and welfare

Every right has its responsibilities. Like the right itself, these responsibilities stem from no man-made law, but from the very nature of man and society. The security, progress and welfare of one group is measured finally in the security, progress and welfare of all mankind.
