Legal Maxim quotes

  • Justice is better when it prevents rather than punishes with severity
  • It is fraud to conceal fraud
  • A public right cannot be changed by private agreement
  • No cause of action arises from a bare promise
  • The trodden path is the safest
  • He who spares the guilty threatens the innocent
  • Every innovation occasions more harm and and derangement of order by its novelty, than benefit by its abstract utility
  • That which necessity compels she excuses
  • The laws are adapted to those cases which most frequently occur
