Foundational Law Quotes VII

Law is
the gift of God,
the model of equity,
a standard of justice,
a likeness of the divine will,
the guardian of well being,
a bond of union between peoples,
a rule defining duties,
a barrier against the vices
and the destroyer thereof,
a punishment of violence
and all wrongdoing.

- John of Salisbury, 12th century AD
