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.
Remember I'm an artist. And you know what that means in a court of law. Next worse to an actress.(Arthur) Joyce Lunel Cary
'Tis midnight, falls the lamp-light dull and sickly On a pale and anxious crowd, Through the court, and round the judges thronging thickly, With prayers they dare not speak aloud Two youths, two noble youths, stand prisoners at the bar You can see them through the gloom In the pride of life and manhood's beauty, there they are Awaiting their death-doom.Jane Francesca ne e Elgee Wilde
In my opinion he's the best player ever. When you play tennis, playing Federer is kind of a dream because you can see he does everything you would love to do on the court.roger federer
He was a manWho stole the livery of the court of HeavenTo serve the Devil in.robert pollok
Towards Livia, too, exorbitant was the flattering court of the Senate. Some were for decreeing her the general title of Mother; others the more particular one of Mother Of Her Country; and almost all moved, that to the name of Tiberius should be added, The Son Of Julia: Tiberius urged in answer, that "public honours to women ought to be warily adjudged, and with a sparing hand; and that with the same measure of moderation he would receive such as were presented to himself."tiberius
The decision of the Supreme court has fell still born, and they find that it cannot coerce Georgia to yield to its mandate.andrew jackson
As to the prevarications which the court charge upon you, I think they must have had an erroneous of opinion of what constituted prevarications, as they certainly had, in my opinion of their power, to take notice of it as an offence .
For their part, the fifth-century Macedonian kings used their newfound wealth to pursue their twin goals of winning recognition for themselves as Greeks and Hellenizing the life of the royal court.
When we went to school we were told that we were governed by laws, not men. As a result of that, many people think there is no need to pay any attention to judicial candidates because judges merely apply the law by some mathematical formula and a good judge and a bad judge all apply the same kind of law. The fact is that the most important part of a judge's work is the exercise of judgment and that the law in a court is never better than the common sense judgment of the judge that is presiding.
No higher duty, or more solemn responsibility rests upon this court than that of translating into living law and maintaining this constitutional shield deliberately planned and inscribed for the benefit of every human being subject to our Constitution -- of whatever race, creed, or persuasion.hugo black
In this court dissents have gradually become majority opinions.felix frankfurter
It is manifestly fallacious to make the opening of counsel the test on the question of what is "the act or transaction which the Crown prosecutes." It is plain that the court is not at all bound by the statements made by the counsel in his address.
Federal District court Judge Jeffrey White ordered Wikileaks's domain name registrar to disable its Web address. That was akin to shutting down a newspaper because of objections to one article. The First Amendment requires the government to act only in the most dire circumstances when it regulates free expression.
I should be desirous that my opinion should not be conclusive on the parties, if there were any mode by which our judgment could be reviewed in a court of error.
The court of Chancery is not a court of Record, and a Judge in Chancery is not the keeper of the records of his own court.
When any one comes into a court of equity to ask that which would not be granted in a court of law, that person must come into court with clean hands.
I do not know whether it is the view of the court that a judge must be thick-skinned or just thick-headed, but nothing in my experience or observation confirms the idea that he is insensitive to publicity. Who does not prefer good to ill report of his work? And if fame a good public name is, as Milton said, the "last infirmity of noble mind", it is frequently the first infirmity of a mediocre one.
I believe it is understood that though, when the Judges are unanimous, the Chief Justice delivers the opinion of the court, yet the other justices are not presumed to adopt and concur with every doctrine that falls from him, in the course of that opinion.
To be sure the court regularly adheres to regular judgments, if in the support of the merits and justice; but if against the merits and justice they always get rid of the mere formality of them; but they do it upon terms.
In case of private jurisdictions, the court has inclined not to intermeddle.
The court is greatly obliged to the gentlemen of the Bar who have spoke on the subject; and by whose care and abilities so much has been effected, that the rule of decision will be reduced to a very easy compass. I cannot omit to express particular happiness in seeing young men, just called to the Bar, have been able so much to profit by their reading.
We cannot hear the integrity and wisdom of Parliament questioned in this court.
If the confidential communications made by servants of the Crown to each other, by superiors to inferiors, or by inferiors to superiors, in the discharge of their duty to the Crown, were liable to be made public in a court of justice at the instance of any suitor who thought proper to say "fiat justitia mat caelum," an order for discovery might involve the country in a war.
No previous will can be treated properly as a precedent for another which is expressed in different language, and no decision on the precise words of a former will can as a general rule be of the least service in guiding the court as to the construction of other words. Unless you can get a principle from a case which is applicable generally to other cases, the precedent is of little use.
Of course I'm following the Supreme court nominations - I have a uterus! I'm stocking up - I got three abortions on the way here. . . I'm pro-choice. . .
