Quotes on Justice

Though justice be thy plea, consider this:

That in the course of justice none of us

Should see salvation.

Merchant of Venice by William Shakespeare, Act 4, Scene 1

One of the criminals who were hanged {there} was hurling abuse at Him, saying, "Are You not the Christ? Save Yourself and us!" But the other answered, and rebuking him said, "Do you not even fear God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation? And we indeed {are suffering} justly, for we are receiving what we deserve for our deeds; but this man has done nothing wrong." (Luke 23:39-41 NASB)
