Ethic and Justice

* "Do not to your neighbor what you would take ill from him." – Pittacus[4]
* "Avoid doing what you would blame others for doing." – Thales [5]
* "What you wish your neighbors to be to you, such be also to them." – Sextus the Pythagorean[6]
* "Do not do to others what would anger you if done to you by others." – Isocrates[7]
* "What thou avoidest suffering thyself seek not to impose on others." – Epictetus[8]
* "It is impossible to live a pleasant life without living wisely and well and justly (agreeing 'neither to harm nor be harmed'[9]),
and it is impossible to live wisely and well and justly without living a pleasant life." – Epicurus[10]
* “Do to every man as thou would’st have him do to thee; and do not unto another what thou would’st not have done to thee” - Believed to have written by Confucius, about 500 years before the start of the Common/Christian era (George Seldes, The Great Quotations, The Citadel Press, 1983, p. 174).



A dog is not considered a good dog because he is a good barker. A man is not considered a good man because he is a good talker.(Buddha)

Nothing is to be preferred before justice (Socrates)

“Justice cannot be for one side alone, but must be for both.”(Eleanor Roosevelt quotes)

Pope Paul VI: "If you want peace, you must work for justice."

Without justice, courage is weak.”(Benjamin Franklin)

Lucy Stone: "To make the public sentiment on the side of all that is just and true and noble is the highest use of life." (1852).

Tolstoy: "When will justice come? When those who are not injured are as indignant as those who are."

Elie Wiesel: "There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest."

Justice is like a train that is nearly always late”(Yevgeny Yevtushenko)
