#1. How did Kirchmann understand the worthlessness of jurisprudence ? The answer lies in the aphorism: "Three revisions by the legislator and whole libraries became wastepaper." With a sharp alteration this answer became a slogan:"A stroke of the legislator's pen and whole libraries became wastepaper." Another aphorism in the same vein made the point even more brusquely and less politely: "Positive law turns the jurist into a worm in rotten wood." Kirchmann meant that jurisprudence could never catch up with legislation. Thus our predicament becomes immediately obvious. What remains of a science reduced to annotating and interpreting constantly changing regulations issued by state agencies presumed to be in the best position to know and articulate their true intent? - Author: Carl Schmitt
Jurisprudence Legal Positivism quotes by Carl Schmitt
#2. I think the reality is that copyright law has for a very long time been a tiny little part of American jurisprudence, far removed from traditional First Amendment jurisprudence, and that made sense before the Internet. Now there is an unavoidable link between First Amendment interests and the scope of copyright law. The legal system is recognizing for the first time the extraordinary expanse of copyright regulation and its regulation of ordinary free-speech activities. - Author: Lawrence Lessig
Jurisprudence Legal Positivism quotes by Lawrence Lessig
#3. The planet Earth in its present mode of florescence is being devastated. This devastation is being fostered and protected by legal, political and economic establishments that exalt the human community while offering no protection to the non-human modes of being. There is an urgent need for a Jurisprudence (system of governance) that recognizes that the well-being of the integral world community is primary, and that human well-being is derivative - an Earth Jurisprudence. - Author: Thomas Berry
Jurisprudence Legal Positivism quotes by Thomas Berry
#4. Justice isn't about fixing the past; it's about healing the past's future. - Author: Jackson Burnett
Jurisprudence Legal Positivism quotes by Jackson Burnett
#5. The judge punishes lawbreakers as a burning house injures its occupants. A person may be burned to death while robbing a home or saving a friend. Similarly, from a moral point of view, the judge's work is good or evil, depending on whether the laws he enforces are good or evil. - Author: Thomas Szasz
Jurisprudence Legal Positivism quotes by Thomas Szasz
#6. Auguste Comte, in particular, whose social system, as unfolded in his Systeme de Politique Positive, aims at establishing (though by moral more than by legal appliances) a despotism of society over the individual, surpassing anything contemplated in the political ideal of the most rigid disciplinarian among the ancient philosophers. - Author: John Stuart Mill
Jurisprudence Legal Positivism quotes by John Stuart Mill
#7. Someday I'll be a lawyer… someday I'll bring justice to people who need it. Lawyers are either legalized liars… or saviors of the truth. - Author: Rebecca McNutt
Jurisprudence Legal Positivism quotes by Rebecca McNutt
#8. Our Supreme Court is not a court of law. It is a court of conjecture and political fad. - Author: A.E. Samaan
Jurisprudence Legal Positivism quotes by A.E. Samaan
#9. What I have called the internal morality of law is in this sense a procedural version of natural law, though to avoid misunderstanding the word "procedural" should be assigned a special and expanded sense so that it would include, for example, a substantive accord between official action and enacted law. The term "procedural" is, however, broadly appropriate as indicating that we are concerned, not with the substantive aims of legal rules, but with the ways in which a system of rules for governing human conduct must be constructed and administered if it is to be efficacious and at the same time remain what it purports to be. - Author: Lon L. Fuller
Jurisprudence Legal Positivism quotes by Lon L. Fuller
#10. Hauriou, became a crown witness for us when he confirmed this connection in 1916, in the midst of WWI: The revolution of 1789 had no other goal than absolute access to the writing of legal statutes and the systematic destruction of customary institutions. It resulted in a state of permanent revolution because the mobility of the writing of laws did not provide for the stability of certain customary institutions, because the forces of change were stronger than the forces of stability. Social and political life in France was completely emptied of institutions and was only able to provisionally maintain itself by sudden jolts spurred by the heightened morality. - Author: Carl Schmitt
Jurisprudence Legal Positivism quotes by Carl Schmitt
#11. The essence and value of the law lies in its stability and durability (...), in its "relative eternity." Only then does the legislator's self-limitation and the independence of the law-bound judge find an anchor. The experiences of the French Revolution showed how an unleashed pouvoir législatif could generate a legislative orgy. - Author: Carl Schmitt
Jurisprudence Legal Positivism quotes by Carl Schmitt
#12. At best-which is to say, even where our knowledge of a case comes to us only through courtroom evidence-it is difficult for the legal process to keep us at a sanitizing distance from crimes of passion. - Author: Diana Trilling
Jurisprudence Legal Positivism quotes by Diana Trilling
#13. First, where the law is the major source for bioethics, morality is too easily confused with legality and moral questions too quickly reduced to legal questions. Moreover, the law is better at
telling us what not to do than at providing ends and goals worthy of our humanity. - Author: Allen Verhey
Jurisprudence Legal Positivism quotes by Allen Verhey
#14. The genie leaned forward to whisper to them.
"Sorry. You guys seem like a nice couple."
"The sultan is my father," Jasmine snapped.
"Oh. Whoops. My bad. It's not so unusual, you know- old kings, young girls. That whole May-December thing. Not totally my fault."
"At least I won't be married to anyone against my will now. Not even Jafar," Jasmine said grimly.
"Yeah, how about we not give Mr. Revengey-pants here ideas?" the genie suggested archly. "There's a substantial legal and magical difference between forcing to love and forcing to marry."
He had a point. Jasmine kept her mouth shut. - Author: Liz Braswell
Jurisprudence Legal Positivism quotes by Liz Braswell
#15. One thing I know from personal experience, judges hate it when parties talk publicly about their cases. There are a lot of things about our criminal legal system that need to be changed, and this is just one of them. Prosecutors know how to play the press. Most defendants don't. - Author: Michael Arrington
Jurisprudence Legal Positivism quotes by Michael Arrington

Jurisprudence Legal Positivism quotes by Kiersten White
#20. Recently a study proved that working from a larger, less cluttered computer screen increases concentration. I could have told them that. And yes, I write first drafts with a mechanical pencil and a yellow legal pad. There's good reason for this primitive behavior: I am a crackerjack typist. My hand moves far more quickly than my brain. - Author: Stacy Schiff
Jurisprudence Legal Positivism quotes by Stacy Schiff
#21. When you do a studio picture, all the paperwork and legal stuff is already taken care of! - Author: David Twohy
Jurisprudence Legal Positivism quotes by David Twohy
#22. The system isn't working when 12 million people live in hiding, and hundreds of thousands cross our borders illegally each year; when companies hire undocumented immigrants instead of legal citizens to avoid paying overtime or to avoid a union; when communities are terrorized by ICE immigration raids - when nursing mothers are torn from their babies, when children come home from school to find their parents missing, when people are detained without access to legal counsel. When all that's happening, the system just isn't working. - Author: Barack Obama
Jurisprudence Legal Positivism quotes by Barack Obama
#23. Thorndyke never forgets a likely case. He is sort of a medico-legal camel. He gulps down the raw facts from the newspapers or elsewhere, and then, in his leisure moments, he calmly regurgitates them and has a quiet chew at them. - Author: R. Austin Freeman
Jurisprudence Legal Positivism quotes by R. Austin Freeman
#24. A jury is composed of twelve men of average ignorance. - Author: Herbert Spencer
Jurisprudence Legal Positivism quotes by Herbert Spencer

#27. Our laws are like the software that runs our country. All the laws for a country, together, are called its legal code, just like computer software is written using code. - Author: Liz Long
Jurisprudence Legal Positivism quotes by Liz Long
#28. The common understanding among Muslims, no doubt indoctrinated by Western notions, is that a secular state is a state that is not governed by the 'ulama', or whose legal system is not established upon the revealed law. In other words it is not a theocratic state. But this setting in contrast the secular state with the theocratic state is not really an Islamic way of understanding the matter, for since Islam does not involve itself in the dichotomy between the sacred and the profane, how then can it set in contrast the theocratic state with the secular state? - Author: Syed Muhammad Naquib Al-Attas
Jurisprudence Legal Positivism quotes by Syed Muhammad Naquib Al-Attas

Jurisprudence Legal Positivism quotes by John M Barry
#30. I'm always writing something. There's always some structure sitting around someplace. There's always things on the computer, things scratched on score paper, legal tablets full of lyrics. It's never not buzzing around me all the time. I'm always doing it. - Author: J. D. Souther
Jurisprudence Legal Positivism quotes by J. D. Souther

Jurisprudence Legal Positivism quotes by Lawrence O'Donnell
#35. Mr. Bredon had been a week with Pym's Publicity, and had learnt a number of things. He learned the average number of words that can be crammed into four inches of copy; that Mr. Armstrong's fancy could be caught by an elaborately-drawn lay-out, whereas Mr. Hankin looked on art-work as waste of a copy-writer's time; that the word "pure" was dangerous, because, if lightly used, it laid the client open to prosecution by the Government inspectors, whereas the words "highest quality," "finest ingredients," "packed under the best conditions" had no legal meaning, and were therefore safe; that the expression "giving work to umpteen thousand British employees in our model works at so-and-so" was not by any means the same thing as "British made throughout"; that the north of England liked its butter and margarine salted, whereas the south preferred it fresh; that the Morning Star would not accept any advertisements containing the word "cure," though there was no objection to such expressions as "relieve" or "ameliorate," and that, further, any commodity that professed to "cure" anything might find itself compelled to register as a patent medicine and use an expensive stamp; that the most convincing copy was always written with the tongue in the cheek, a genuine conviction of the commodity's worth producing - for some reason - poverty and flatness of style; that if, by the most far-fetched stretch of ingenuity, an indecent meaning could be read into a headline, that was the meaning tha - Author: Dorothy L. Sayers
Jurisprudence Legal Positivism quotes by Dorothy L. Sayers

Jurisprudence Legal Positivism quotes by Khil Raj Regmi
#37. Americans today sometimes assume the Founders' references to God or Nature or the Supreme Ruler were just for impact or for propaganda. Not so. These were tightly reasoned statements of legal principles. Your rights to your life, liberty, and property came from your Creator, not the government; these rights cannot be repealed. - Author: Richard J. Maybury
Jurisprudence Legal Positivism quotes by Richard J. Maybury
#38. Every non-political human grouping of whatever kind, legal, social, religious, economic or other becomes at last political if it creates an opposition deep enough to range men against one another as enemies. - Author: Francis Parker Yockey
