By accident most strange, bountiful Fortune Now my dear lady hath mine enemies Brought to this shore; and by my prescience I find my zenith doth depend upon A most auspicious star, whose influence If now I court not, but omit, my fortunes Will ever after droop.
He cut himself off from the Spirit of God. Whether or not we get around to holding a court doesn't matter that much; he has cut himself off from the Spirit of the Lord.henry d. moyle
I recommend to you, in my last, an innocent piece of art: that of flattering people behind their backs, in presence of those who, to make their own court, much more than for your sake, will not fail to repeat, and even amplify, the praise to the party concerned. This is of all flattery the most pleasing, and consequently the most effectual.stanhope, philip, 4th earl of chesterfield
Qui se venge à demi court lui-même à sa peine: Il faut ou condamner ou couronner sa haine.pierre corneille
"I beseech ye in the bowels of Christ, think that ye may be mistaken." I should like to have that written over the portals of every church, every school, and every courthouse, and, may I say, of every legislative body in the United States. I should like to have every court begin, "I beseech ye in the bowels of Christ, think that we may be mistaken."learned hand
To laugh, to lie, to flatter to face, Foure waies in court to win men's grace.Roger Ascham
I will now court her in the conqueror's style; "Come, see, and overcome."Philip Massinger
As the Streisand Effect gradually becomes required textbook material for any student of public relations, it's surprising to see that some organizations and individuals still prefer to operate in the pre-Streisand age of threats and court orders. For better or worse, the Internet does not adequately respond to the threat of legal action: One simply can't sue so many often anonymous individuals from so many jurisdictions.
Contempt is also defined as the state of being despised or dishonored ; disgrace , and an open disrespect or willful disobedience of the authority of a court of law or legislative body.
There's an outside chance that Roberts might assign [the opinion] to Alito, but, you know, [it's] Alito's second year on the court; he should still do the tax and ERISA cases for a few more years. I think this case is too intersting for him.samuel alito
The Constitution is not a panacea for every blot upon the public welfare, nor should this court, ordained as a judicial body, be thought of as a general haven for reform movements.harlan, john marshall, ii
It is the glory and happiness of our excellent constitution, that to prevent any injustice no man is to be concluded by the first judgment; but that if he apprehends himself to be aggrieved, he has another court to which he can resort for relief; for this purpose the law furnishes him with appeals, with writs of error and false judgment.john pratt
It seemed to me that I had barely reached the court when people were trying to get me off.william o. douglas
It is of course true that any kind of judicial legislation is objectionable on the score of the limited interests which a court can represent, yet there are wrongs which in fact legislatures cannot be brought to take an interest in, at least not until the Courts have acted.learned hand
When the court moved to Washington in 1800, it was provided with no books, which probably accounts for the high quality of early opinions.robert h. jackson
Considering the laxity with which the title of Esquire has been used, as is the subject of remark by Sir Thomas Smith, in his days, as to the title of gentleman . . . the court cannot take upon itself in this case to define, whether it has been improperly assumed.
Those who sell or facilitate weapons to individuals that will commit human rights violations know that they have responsibility for the death and misery caused by those weapons and at some stage may be liable to face the International Criminal court for complicity in war crimes and crimes against humanity.”
As the United States Supreme court declared in the landmark case of Hustler v. Falwell , an advertising parody which portrayed the leader of the MOral Majority as having engaged in a drunken incestuous rendezvous with his other, could not reasonably have been interpreted as stating actual facts about him.
Am a servant of Rama, Accredited to His court , What for should I Be a Courier of man?
The law has armed the High court of Justice with the power, and imposed on it the duty of preventing brevi manu and by summary proceedings any attempt to interfere with the administration of justice. It is on that ground, and not on any exaggerated notion of the dignity of individuals that insults to Judges are not allowed.
Let us have no breaking of the peace in court.
It appears to me wrong in principle for any court or Judge to impose fetters on the exercise by themselves or others of powers which are left by law to their discretion in each case as it arises.
Sitting in a court of law, I can receive no evidence but what comes under the sanction of an oath.
I never give a judicial opinion upon any point, until I think I am master of every material argument and authority relative to it. It is not only a justice due to the Crown and the party, in every criminal cause where doubts arise, to weigh well the grounds and reasons of the judgment; but it is of great consequence, to explain them with accuracy and precision, in open court; especially if the questions be of a general tendency, and upon topics never before fully considered and settled; that the criminal law of the land may be certain and known.
The court ought never to come to the conclusion that two cases in the same court, or in Courts of co-ordinate jurisdiction, are in conflict, unless it is obliged to. I agree that if two cases are in conflict the court must say with which of them it agrees.
Le jury est perjure si le verdict soit contra lour proper judgment, coment per direction del court, car lour serement oblige eux al lour judgment proper : The jury is perjured if the verdict be against their own judgment, tho' by direction of the court, for their oath obliges them to their own judgment.
His father was a man of that strictness of conscience, that he gave over the practice of the law, because he could not understand the reason of giving colour in pleadings, which, as he thought, was to tell a lye . And that, with some other things commonly practised, seemed to him contrary to that exactness of truth and justice, which became a Christian, so that he withdrew himself from the Inns of court to live on his estate in the country.
I know of no duty of the court which it is more important to observe, and no powers of the court which it is more important to enforce, than its power of keeping public bodies within their rights. The moment public bodies exceed their rights] they do so to the injury and oppression of private individuals, and those persons are entitled to be protected from injury arising from such operations of public bodies.
I will not suffer the Christian religion to be reviled, while I sit in this court, and possess the power of preventing it.
