[The atheist believes] a world marked by so much Injustice, innocent suffering, and cynicism of power cannot be the work of a good God.Benedict XVI
Of all the forms of inequality, Injustice in healthcare is the most shocking and inhumane.Martin Luther King Jr.
We Christians forget (if we ever learned) that attempts to redress real or imagined Injustice by violent means are merely another exercise in denial — denial of God and her nonviolence towards us, denial of love of neighbor, denial of laws essential to our being.philip berrigan
First, then, a woman will or won’t, depend on ’t;If she will do ’t, she will; and there ’s an end on ’t.But if she won’t, since safe and sound your trust is,Fear is affront, and jealousy Injustice.aaron hill
Pacifism, to me, is primarily a way of actively struggling against Injustice and inhumanity; My kind of pacifism may be called "non-violent resistance".dwight macdonald
Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.Martin Luther King, Jr., Letter from a Birmingham Jail (1963).
We are convinced that liberty without socialism is privilege, Injustice; and that socialism without liberty is slavery and brutality.mikhail bakunin
To maintain this state of things we make all our achievements in science and technology serve organised mass murder; we educate our youth into uniformed killers, deliver the people to the soulless tyranny of a bureaucracy, put men from the cradle to the grave under police supervision, erect everywhere jails and penitentiaries, and fill every land with whole armies of informers and spies. Should not such "order," from whose infected womb are born eternally brutal power, Injustice, lies, crime and moral rottennesslike poisonous germs of destructive plagues gradually convince even conservative minds that it is order too dearly bought?rudolf rocker
I wrote what I did because as a woman, as a mother I was oppressed and broken-hearted, with the sorrows and Injustice I saw, because as a Christian I felt the dishonor to Christianity — because as a lover of my country I trembled at the coming day of wrath.It is no merit in the sorrowful that they weep, or to the oppressed and smothering that they gasp and struggle, not to me, that I must speak for the oppressed — who cannot speak for themselves.harriet beecher stowe
The Mahdi is the 12th descendant of the prophet Mohammad, whose reappearance is predicted for a time when the Muslims are suffering from disaster and Injustice; true Islamic rule is possible only upon his return.Banafsheh Zand-Bonazzi, Mullahs vs. Mullahs (Part 2).
It is usual to speak of the Fascist objective as the "beehive state", which does grave Injustice to bees. A world of rabbits ruled by stoats would be nearer the mark.george orwell
One man's justice is another's Injustice. One man's beauty another's ugliness. One man's wisdom another's folly.ralph waldo emerson
Justice is being allowed to do whatever I like. Injustice is whatever prevents my doing it.Collected in H F Jones (ed) The Notebooks of Samuel Butler (1912).
"Injustice which lasts for three long centuries and which exists among millions of people over thousands of square miles of territory, is Injustice no longer; it is an accomplished fact of life. Men adjust themselves to their land; they create their own laws of being; their notions of right and wrong.richard wright
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.clarence darrow
A day of grace is yet held out to us. Both North and South have been guilty before God; and the Christian church has a heavy account to answer. Not by combining together, to protect Injustice and cruelty, and making a common capital of sin, is this Union to be saved, — but by repentance, justice and mercy; for, not surer is the eternal law by which the millstone sinks in the ocean, than that stronger law, by which Injustice and cruelty shall bring on nations the wrath of Almighty God!harriet beecher stowe
The metaphysical apologia at least betrayed the Injustice of the established order through the incongruence of concept and reality. The impartiality of scientific language deprived what was powerless of the strength to make itself heard and merely provided the existing order with a neutral sign for itself. Such neutrality is more metaphysical than metaphysics.theodor adorno
My name has been associated with that of Mr. Jay Gould and others in connection with the speculation, and gross Injustice has been done me thereby.… You have my authority for stating that I consider Mr. Jay Gould a damned villain.jay gould
The chief object of the Law, as has been shown by us, is the teaching of truths; to which the truth of the creatio ex nihilo belongs. It is known that the object of the law of Sabbath is to confirm and to establish this principle, as we have shown in this treatise (Part II. chap. xxxi.) In addition to the teaching of truths the Law aims at the removal of Injustice from mankind. We have thus proved that the first laws do not refer to burnt-offering and sacrifice, which are of secondary importance.maimonides
The genuine Anarchist looks with sheer horror upon every destruction, every mutilation of a human being, physical or moral. He loathes wars, executions and imprisonments, the grinding down of the worker's whole nature in a dreary round of toil, the sexual and economic slavery of women, the oppression of children, the crippling and poisoning of human nature by the preventable cruelty and Injustice of man to man in every shape and form."Anarchism and homicidal outrage" in What Is Anarchism?: An Introduction by Donald Rooum, ed. (London: Freedom Press, 1992, 1995) p. 43.
When one has been threatened with a great Injustice, one accepts a smaller as a favour.jane welsh carlyle
No Court ought to depart from the plain meaning of plain English words, unless coerced to do so by some very serious Injustice, a hardship which would arise from a literal interpretation, for instance, where the legal interpretation would, in the opinion of the Court, operate so harshly that the Court would be driven to suppose that there must have been some clerical mistake in the language of the Act, or deed, or whatever may be under consideration.James, L.J., Ex parte Rashleigh; In re Dalzell (1875), L. R. 2 C. D. 13.
It is God's purpose to save to save His people from their sins, to purge out of them all hypocrisy, falsehood, Injustice, and make of them honest men, true men, just men men created anew after His likeness. And this is the meaning of His salvation; and is the only salvation worth having, for this life or the life to come.Charles Kingsley, p. 529. (Dictionary of Burning Words of Brilliant Writers (1895))
A just city should favor justice and the just, hate tyranny and Injustice, and give them both their just deserts.H. Gibb et al., eds., "Mazalim", The Dictionary of Islam vol. IV (Leiden: Brill, 1991)
Relations between States and within States are correct to the extent that they respect the truth . When, instead, truth is violated, peace is threatened, law is endangered, then, as a logical consequence, forms of Injustice are unleashed.In Address to the International Diplomats Address to the International Diplomats (18 March 2006)
