5. "Funnily enough, "self-criticism" is an idea much in vogue in Marxist countries, but there it is subordinated to ideological considerations and must serve the State, and not truth and justice in men's dealing with one another. The mass State has no intention of promoting mutual understanding and the relationship of man to man; it strives, rather, for atomization, for the psychic isolation of the individual. The more unrelated individuals are, the more consolidated the State becomes, and vice versa."
Author: C.G. Jung

Eliot appelait « les hommes vides ».Ils bouchent leur vide avec des brins de paille qu'ils ne sentent pas, et ne serendent pas compte de ce qu'ils font. Et avec leurs mots creux, ils essaientd'imposer leur propre insensibilité aux autres."
Author: Haruki Murakami

Author: Immaculee Ilibagiza

Author: Jhonen Vasquez
11. "One of my defining beliefs is that Jesus Christ has taken all of my guilt before God, and that he has been raised from the dead. That gives incredible hope and meaning to every day of my life - that nothing done in this world is wasted when it's done for him and his glory, and that there will be a day of justice and reward for the entire world."
Author: Joshua Harris
12. "Justice can sleep for years and awaken when it is least expected. A miracle is nothing more than dormant justice from another time arriving to compensate those it has cruelly abandoned. Whoever knows this is willing to suffer, for he knows that nothing is in vain."
Author: Mark Helprin
13. "Its an arrogant conceit of humans to think that they can "give" justice in whatever capacity. Karma would boomerang sooner or later and you are not required to meddle with it. Laws don't ensure justice but ensures fear of punishment in men much like religion instills fear of God."
Author: Nikhil Sharda
14. "Have you seen your sin in light of the Law of God? Do you understand in your heart of hearts that if every secret sin is manifest on the Day of Wrath and if justice had its way, you would fall like lightning into hell? Have you fallen prostrate in the blood-soaked earth at the foot of the cross? Have you pictured Jesus Christ crucified? Have you seen the precious blood pouring from His hands and His feet, and cried, "For me He dies"? If you have, horror mingled with unspeakable gratitude will drive you to your knees, and you will whisper, "Oh, God, because You did that for me, I will do anything for You!" This zeal for God will produce in you a zeal for the lost. Remember that whispered prayer of surrender the next time you fear hollers at you as you hand someone a tract."
Author: Ray Comfort
15. "They put me in a holding cell with a black kid and a white kid and a Chinese kid. We're the United Nations of juvenile delinquents."
Author: Sherman Alexie
16. "Sin is like that. Whether you know what you're doing or not, there is damage. There are consequences. The holiness of the Lord requires justice for these consequences. It demands a covering for them. At the same time. He is merciful with our mistakes. So he Himself gives us that covering by providing us with the sacrifice."
Author: Tessa Afshar
17. "If I owe a person money, and cannot pay him, and he threatens to put me in prison, another person can take the debt upon himself, and pay it for me. But if I have committed a crime, every circumstance of the case is changed. Moral justice cannot take the innocent for the guilty even if the innocent would offer itself. To suppose justice to do this, is to destroy the principle of its existence, which is the thing itself. It is then no longer justice. It is indiscriminate revenge."
Author: Thomas Paine
