Quote(s) of the day: On justice

Mercy to the guilty is injustice to the innocent.
- paraphrased from Adam Smith

It is not justice or equal treatment that you grant to men when you abstain equally from praising men’s virtues and from condemning men’s vices. When your impartial attitude declares, in effect, that neither the good nor the evil may expect anything from you—whom do you betray and whom do you encourage?
- Ayn Rand on justice
