More Research

I am fond, when on evening the conversation turns to the matter of law, of garbling up a half remembered quote which goes a little something like "The law is equal it prevents the rich and the poor from sleeping under bridges". Anyway as before I've got this slightly wrong, if not so much in the essence this time. The full quote is:
The law, in its majestic equality, forbids the rich as well as the poor to sleep under bridges, to beg in the streets, and to steal bread.

It's a bit more of a mouthful in this version and I'm not sure I could get past "majestic equality" without comment, but I prefer the fuller version. More about this quote can be found over at Everything
