The love of life is necessary to the vigorous prosecution of any undertaking.1750-2 In The Rambler.
I can answer for but three things: a firm belief in the justice of ourcause, close attention in the prosecution of it, and the strictest integrity.1775 On being elected Commander of the Unionist Army,19 Jun.
In view of the vast size of the occupied areas in the East the forces available for establishing security in these areas will be sufficient only if all resistance is punished not by legal prosecution of the guilty but by the spreading of such terror by the occupying power as is appropriate to eradicate every inclination to resist among the population. The competent commanders must find the means of keeping order not by demanding more security forces but by applying suitable Draconian methods.alfred jodl

Whatever policy we adopt, there must be an energetic prosecution of it. For this purpose it must be somebody's business to pursue and direct it incessantly.william h. seward
Strength, the American way, is not manifested by threats of criminal prosecution or police state methods.Leadership is not manifested by coercion, even against the resented. Greatness is not manifested by unlimited pragmatism, which places such a high premium on the end justifying any means and any methods.Margaret Chase Smith
How the hell did they think this was going to be something else than EPIC FAIL for the prosecution? We’re winning so hard.peter sunde
If the prosecution of crime is to be conducted with so little regard for that protection which centuries of English law have given to the individual, we are indeed at the dawn of a new era; and much that we have deemed vital to our liberties, is a delusion.learned hand
I have been reminded that I sit here as counsel for the defendant. I certainly do so, so far as to interpose between him and the counsel for the prosecution, and to see that no improper use of the law is made against him, and that no improper evidence is given to the jury: but the Judge has another task to perform, which is that of assisting the jury in the administration of justice.kenyon, lloyd, 1st baron kenyon
Human justice is very prolix, and yet at times quite mediocre; divine justice is more concise and needs no information from the prosecution, no legal papers, no interrogation of witnesses, but makes the guilty one his own informer and helps him with eternity’s memory."Eighteen Upbuilding Discourses, Against Cowardliness p. 351
If publishers and editors exert themselves to keep certain topics out of print, it is not because they are frightened of prosecution but because they are frightened of public opinion. In this country intellectual cowardice is the worst enemy a writer or journalist has to face, and that fact does not seem to me to have had the discussion it deserves.george orwell
Every neurosis is a primitive form of legal proceeding in which the accused carries on the prosecution, imposes judgment and executes the sentence: all to the end that someone else should not perform the same process.Lionel Trilling
The only rational liberty is that which is born of subjection, reared in the fear of God and the love of man, and made courageous in the defense of a trust and the prosecution of duty.William G. Simms, p. 378. (Dictionary of Burning Words of Brilliant Writers (1895))
It is to the interest of the public that the suppression of a prosecution should not be made matter of private bargain.Erie, C.J., Clubb v. Hutson (1865), L. R. 18 C. B. Rep. (N. S.) 417.
A Judge ought to prepare his way to a just sentence, as God useth to prepare his way, by raising valleys and taking down hills: so when there appeareth on either side a high hand, violent prosecution, cunning advantages taken, combination, power, great counsel , then is the virtue of a Judge seen to make inequality equal; that he may plant his judgment as upon even ground.Bacon, " Essay on Judicature".
I have been reminded that I sit here as counsel for the defendant. I certainly do so, so far as to interpose between him and the counsel for the prosecution, and to see that no improper use of the law is made against him, and that no improper evidence is given to the jury: but the Judge has another task to perform, which is that of assisting the jury in the administration of justice.Lord Kenyon, Wakefield's Case (1799), 27 How. St. Tr. 736.
