Quote du Jour

The laws keep up their credit, not by being just, but because they are laws; ’tis the mystic foundation of their authority; they have no other, and it well answers their purpose. They are often made by fools; still oftener by men who, out of hatred to equality, fail in equity; but always by men, vain and irresolute authors.

— Michel Eyquem du Montagne (1533-1592), French philosopher, essayist
