Henry David Thoreau
Injustice alone can shake down the pillars of the skies, and restore the reign of Chaos and Night.
Horace Mann
Of all injustice that is the greatest which goes under the name of law.
Heath L’Estrange
But I can tell you what your folly and injustice will compel us to do. It will compel us to be free from your domination, and more self-reliant than we have been.
John H. Reagan
Do you think you can be righteous and holy with impunity?
Jean Racine
To do injustice is more disgraceful than to suffer it.
I have no idea of submitting tamely to injustice inflicted either on me or on the slave. I will oppose it with all the moral powers with which I am endowed. I am no advocate of passivity.
Lucretia Mott
All that the law can do is to shape things so that no injustice shall be done by one to the other, and that each man shall be given the first chance to show the stuff that is in him.
Theodore Roosevelt
He who is not angry when there is just cause for anger is immoral. Why? Because anger looks to the good of justice. And if you can live amid injustice without anger, you are immoral as well as unjust.
Thomas Aquinas
We don’t consider the battle has ended in Afghanistan… The battle has begun and its fires are picking up. These fires will reach the White House, because it is the center of injustice and tyranny.
Mohammed Omar
The reader may ask himself if this is not cruelty and injustice of a kind so terrible that it beggars the imagination, and whether these poor people would not fare far better if they were entrusted to the devils in Hell than they do at the hands of the devils of the New World who masquerade as Christians.
Bartolome de las Casas
When once a social order is well established, no matter what injustice it involves, those who occupy a position of advantage are not long in coming to believe that it is the only possible and reasonable order.
Suzanne La Follette
If there is wrong, you don’t say we have to get rid of it gradually. If injustice exists, you need to eliminate it immediately.
Charles Koch
I think sci-fi and horror are a perfect vehicle for exploring racism and injustice, the horrors of that. They are real; they are actual; they are tangible. They are also metaphorical and invisible.
Wunmi Mosaku
The Middle East is a land of great injustice. The Israelis can claim – or wish to, at least – that Lord Balfour’s Declaration of 1917 promised Britain support for a Jewish homeland in Palestine, which didn’t just mean the left-hand bit that became Israel.
Robert Fisk
The evolution of man is slow. The injustice of men is great.
Oscar Wilde
Freedom from fear and injustice and oppression will be ours only in the measure that men who value such freedom are ready to sustain its possession – to defend it against every thrust from within or without.
Dwight D. Eisenhower
Law is justice. In this proposition a simple and enduring government can be conceived. And I defy anyone to say how even the thought of revolution, of insurrection, of the slightest uprising could arise against a government whose organized force was confined only to suppressing injustice.
Frederic Bastiat
The stories are most often about justice. In her stories, those who commit injustice, or act tyrannically, come to no good. They are punished.
Marina Warner
We can have justice whenever those who have not been injured
by injustice are as outraged by it as those who have been.
My father’s approach to the most brutal and unambiguous social injustices during the civil rights struggle was rooted in nonviolence as a morally and tactically correct response.
Martin Luther King III
If the market is left to sort matters out, social injustice will be heightened and suffering in the community will grow with the neglect the market fosters.
Helen Clark
Many people we consider legends, such as Jerry Lee Lewis and Chuck Berry, remain so scarred by scandals, injustices and regrets from decades earlier that they’re barely able to appreciate their accomplishments.
Neil Strauss
When you see corruption, when you see injustice, you speak up. You don’t just shut up and say it’s none of my business.
Manal al-Sharif
One person can stop a great injustice. One person can be a voice for truth. One person’s kindness can save a life.
Nicky Gumbel
The world is neither wise nor just, but it makes up for all its folly and injustice by being damnably sentimental.
Thomas Huxley
We are living in tumultuous times, and our focus should be fighting against the oppression and injustices that are against us – not battling those who are on the same side of seeking justice and peace.
Shaun King
That amid our highest civilization men faint and die with want is not due to the niggardliness of nature, but to the injustice of man.
Henry George
Both trials are marred with injustice, both are flawed.
Ramsey Clark
I had seen so many injustices done in the court by well-meaning people. I had lost fourteen clients to gang violence in only seven years. I was angry at a system I thought had failed my clients, and I was part of it.
Richard Helms
The embattled gates to equal rights indeed opened up for modern women, but I sometimes think to myself; that is not what I meant by freedom, it is only social progress.
Helene Deutsch
However it may be confounded or covered up or counterfeited, this elemental capacity to fight against injustice remains the distinguishing characteristic of human beings.
Rollo May
It is one thing to be awakened to injustice and quite another to be willing to be inconvenienced and interrupted to do something about it.
Christine Caine
In order to have the continued opportunity to express their “generosity” the oppressors must perpetuate injustice as well.
Paulo Freire
I don’t think rappers have a responsibility, but for me, I gotta say something. I can’t just look at injustice and keep quiet.
The Constitution protects our right to peacefully protest injustices, but violence has no place in our civic discourse.
Ronny Jackson
The only influence that can really upset the injustice and iniquity of men is the power that breathes in the Christian tradition, renewing our participation in the Life that is the Light of men.
Thomas Merton
We can’t let this happen. We should march on Washington and stop this travesty. Our nation is totally divided! Let’s fight like hell and stop this great and disgusting injustice! The world is laughing at us.
Donald Trump
If you wish to know what justice is, let injustice pursue you.
Eugenio Maria de Hostos
What I will remember most about Mr Mandela is that he was a man whose heart, soul and spirit could not be contained or restrained by racial and economic injustices, metal bars or the burden of hate and revenge.
Muhammad Ali
Finally, is not liberty the restricting of the law only to its rational sphere of organizing the right of the individual to lawful self-defense; of punishing injustice?
Frederic Bastiat
I have been the victim of many of the injustices that women who are my clients have had. That is how I understand how this is impacting their lives economically, psychologically, often physically. It’s all personal. For me, if one woman is denied her rights, we’re all being denied our rights.
Gloria Allred
We spoke and acted as if, given the opportunity for self-government, we would quickly create utopias. Instead injustice, even tyranny, is rampant.
Julius Nyerere
Most of us who have been lucky enough to hear, read and see the Dalai Lama, often come away thinking, “What a kind, inspiring and golden human being!” That is true, but I think it does him an injustice.
Pico Iyer
I think everybody should have the same anger towards the injustice that’s happening and the hatred that’s happening, and just fight it with love and compassion.
Ellen DeGeneres
Internet outrage can seem mindless, but it rarely is. To make that assumption is dismissive. There’s something beneath the outrage – an unwillingness to be silent in the face of ignorance, hatred or injustice. Outrage may not always be productive, but it is far better than silence.
Roxane Gay
Injustice wears ever the same harsh face wherever it shows itself.
Ralph Ellison
Even the laws of justice themselves cannot subsist without mixture of injustice.
Ambrose Bierce
In this denial of the right to participate in government, not merely the degradation of woman and the perpetuation of a great injustice happens, but the maiming and repudiation of one-half of the moral and intellectual power of the government of the world.
Frederick Douglass
Define home “not as a comforable, stable, inherited and familiar space, but instead as an imaginative, politically-charged space where the familiarity and sense of affection and commitment lay in shared collective analysis of social injustice as well as a vision for radical transformation”
Chandra Talpade Mohanty
My father is from Mississippi, and I heard stories of racial injustice my whole life.
Omar Benson Miller
There is no greater injustice than to wring your profits from the sweat of another man’s brow.
Abraham Lincoln
Against eternal injustice, man must assert justice, and to protest against the universe of grief, he must create happiness.
Albert Camus
Let us not complain against men because otheir rudeness, their ingratitude, their injustice, their arrogance, their love oself, their forgetfulness oothers. They are so made. Such is their nature.
Jean de la Bruyere
Prejudice is a form of untruthfulness, and untruthfulness is an insidious form of injustice.
Miroslav Volf
You can be sure you are a man of God if you suffer injustice gladly and in silence.
Josemaria Escriva
You hold on to old experiences: injuries, injustices, and great love affairs, too. And you hold them in your joints and your organs, and wear them on your skin.
Ann Brashares
It is not possible to found a lasting power upon injustice, perjury, and treachery.
I don’t want any injustice brought against the bullies. Bullies just don’t know any better. Anyone who is crying about police brutality or victimization as an adult needs to stop it and realize the privileges we have in this country.
Ariel Pink
I ran for office because I believe personally that the cycle of poverty is systemic, is rooted in racial injustice, and is rooted in gender bias. It is violence. It is trauma. It is a crime. But, most importantly, it is our policy choice.
Jamaal Bowman
The danger of success is that it makes us forget the world’s dreadful injustice.
Jules Renard
This is always a pain because it’s injustice too and so my response to it, I tell you what I am more surprised or horrified at Jews who forget to be humanists than I am at anybody else.
Janet Suzman
What kind of world permitted such terrible injustice, where good men were stripped of everything and soulless creatures of malice and hatred survived to glory in their pointless death?
Terry Brooks
If you study the history and records of the world you must admit that the source of justice was the fear of injustice.
I think it does work. The fact that the law is there and injustices can be rectified, I think has a lot to do with the fact that the people in this country aren’t as frustrated as they are in some of these places in Eastern Europe and don’t resort to violent revolution.
Harold H. Greene
I’m not a victim – I’m a survivor of hunger, of hate, of different injustices that humans are facing today.
Clemantine Wamariya
The fall of one regime does not bring in a utopia. Rather, it opens the way for hard work and long efforts to build more just social, economic,and political relationships and the eradication of other forms of injustices and oppression.
Gene Sharp
Then not only custom, but also nature affirms that to do is more disgraceful than to suffer injustice, and that justice is equality.
It isn’t hard to find injustice around us, but we must not let injustice smear the good deeds that do occur everyday.
Rand Paul
The whole reason behind my album ‘Free TC’ is seeing all that police brutality, injustice, mass incarceration.
Ty Dolla Sign
Abstinence from all injustice to other first-rate powers is a greater tower of strength than anything that can be gained by the sacrifice of permanent tranquillity for an apparent temporary advantage.
Avarice and injustice are always shortsighted, and they did not foresee how much this regulation must obstruct improvement, and thereby hurt in the long-run the real interest of the landlord.
Adam Smith
I believe in God, in Jesus Christ. I love Jesus Christ. I am a Christian… I cry when I see injustice, children dying of hunger.
Hugo Chavez
Silence in the face of injustice is complicity with the opressor.
Ginetta Sagan
Trump erases the ability to recognize suffering and to try to understand the conditions that produce it, the ability to become a moral witness in the face of injustices. Trump erases that. Trump appeals to a population in which that becomes irrelevant. And that is so dangerous, at this particular time.
Henry Giroux
Certainly I’m not saying that you sit down and patiently accept injustice. I’m talking about a very strong force, where you stand up with all your might against an evil system, and you are not a coward.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
… the keynote of government is injustice.
Emma Goldman
If you have done terrible things, you must endure terrible things; for thus the sacred light of injustice shines bright.
Passivity is the same as defending injustice.
Deepak Chopra
Many an injustice is presented as solution and gift.
Bryant H. McGill
Progress is the injustice each generation commits with regard to its predecessors.
Emile M. Cioran
You don’t fight injustice by asking to become part of the system that committed the injustice against you in the first place. That’s like a freed slave striving to become a slave owner.
Carmen Yulin Cruz
The U.S. immigration laws are bad – really, really bad. I’d say treatment of immigrants is one of the greatest injustices done in our government’s name.
Bill Gates
Sin is cruelty and injustice, all else is peccadillo. Oh, a sense of sin comes from violating the customs of your tribe. But breaking custom is not sin even when it feels so; sin is wronging another person.
Robert A. Heinlein
Fraud is the ready minister of injustice.
Edmund Burke
Any of the social changes in American history are because people thought there was injustice. We have to show that this corporate welfare and cronyism is unjust – and that it’s not only rigging the system so people get wealthy who don’t deserve to get wealthy.
Charles Koch
I have always admired the courage of ordinary individuals to step up and speak out against injustice and tyranny.
Pritam Singh
The human eye is a wonderful device. With a little effort, it can fail to see even the most glaring injustice.
Richard K. Morgan
But blacks make little to no progress and, worse, the preoccupation with injustice only leaves them eternally inconsolable and cut off from their own best energies and talents.
Shelby Steele
The bread which you use is the bread of the hungry; the garment hanging in your wardrobe is the garment of him who is naked; the shoes you do not wear are the shoes of the one who is barefoot; the acts of charity that you do not perform are so many injustices that you commit.
Saint Basil
I think that children are acutely sensitive to injustice because they live in a world that is absolutely filled with injustice. They have very, very little power, and they are extremely aware of power relations.
Deborah Eisenberg
People of conscience need to break their ties with corporations financing the injustice of climate change.
Desmond Tutu
I’m always wanting and willing to be a voice for my people, a voice for the injustice.
Nafessa Williams
Nothing would catch me off guard, because I understand the world I live in. I understand it very well. And the world I live in is not necessarily a fair or just world. I have dealt with these injustices for the bigger part of my life.
Paul Kagame
We can become anything. That is why injustice is impossible here. There may be the accident of birth, there is no accident of death. Nothing forces us to remain what we were.
John Berger
Soon the day will come when science will win victory over error, justice a victory over injustice, and human love a victory over human hatred and ignorance.
Magnus Hirschfeld
Learning, while at school, that the charge for the education of girls was the same as that for boys, and that, when they became teachers, women received only half as much as men for their services, the injustice of this distinction was so apparent.
Lucretia Mott
Rarely in my 45 years as a civil rights lawyer have I been so angry about an injustice as I am about what happened to Billy Ray Johnson.
Morris Dees
Hard work enables us to improve ourselves and the world around us, to combat injustice, reduce suffering, and increase human freedom.
Joe Lonsdale
Though the rampant racial injustices throughout the criminal justice system were offensive to me and to millions of other people, I’ve never drawn a tight circle around the black community to define the limits of my moral concern. But that narrative tends to get imposed on you, if you’re an African-American activist.
Van Jones
One thing I learned as a journalist is that there is at least one disgruntled person in every workplace in America – and at least double that number with a conscience. Hard as they try, they simply can’t turn their heads away from an injustice when they see one taking place.
Michael Moore
Nothing is absolutely unjust. There is no real equity, no total grandeur, no pure vice, no absolute crime.
Julien Offray de La Mettrie
Legal aid is central to righting wrongs and rectifying injustice.
Sadiq Khan
The emancipation of women from intemperance, injustice, prejudice, and bigotry. see Edgar Y. Harburg, We Gotta be Free
Amelia Bloomer
Dave Eggers is a prince among men when it comes to writing deeply felt, socially conscious books that meld reportage with fiction. While A Hologram for the King is fiction…it’s a strike against the current state of global economic injustice.
Elissa Schappell
As a world leader who refused to accept injustice, Nelson Mandela’s courage helped change our entire world
Salil Shetty
You find that the injustice that created a wound is no longer true, right now, in this moment.
Miguel Angel Ruiz
It comforts the adult conscience to remember that, amid history’s grave injustices, there were still great lives.
Rumaan Alam
For Nature is not unjust. She does not steal into the womb and like an evil fairy give her good gifts secretly to men and deny them to women. Men and women are born free and equal in ability and brain. The injustice begins after birth.
Pearl S. Buck
Now that nation called Israel, never has had any peace in forty years and she will never have any peace because there can never be any peace structured on injustice, thievery, lying and deceit and using the name of God to shield your dirty religion under His holy and righteous name.
Louis Farrakhan
Acceptance of one’s life has nothing to do with resignation; it does not mean running away from the struggle. On the contrary, it means accepting it as it comes, with all the handicaps of heredity, of suffering, of psychological complexes and injustices.
Paul Tournier
If women don’t lead, nobody else is going to, because nobody else feels as passionately as we do about injustices. We feel passionate about injustices to women and girls, and not in exclusion to injustices elsewhere.
Jocelynne Scutt
Insistence on truth can come into play when one party practices untruth or injustice. Only then can love be tested. True friendship is put to the test only when one party disregards the obligation of friendship.
Mahatma Gandhi
I have been swamped all my life with the idea of the unlimited potential and resources of the American Dream. Not only is this untrue, but it’s an injustice to those people who don’t have access to this utopia.
Rick Alverson
We all have a social mask, right? We put it on, we go out, put our best foot forward, our best image. But behind that social mask is a personal truth, what we really, really believe about who we are and what we’re capable of.
Phil McGraw
Whatever the political injustices are that created an environment that brought this about, it was not Americans who flew those planes into those buildings. And we should remember that. The crimes against humanity were perpetrated by people who were Arab Muslims.
Robert Fisk
Philanthropy is commendable, but it must not cause the philanthropist to overlook the circumstances of economic injustice which make philanthropy necessary.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Where you see wrong or inequality or injustice, speak out, because this is your country. This is your democracy. Make it. Protect it. Pass it on.
Thurgood Marshall
A noble spirit finds a cure for injustice in forgetting it.
Publilius Syrus
I couldn’t find anyone doing something about the astounding injustices women were experiencing, so I decided to do something myself. I cannot tell you how many people ridiculed my efforts.
Zainab Salbi
The Social Security trust fund is in pretty good shape today and we should not embark upon risky, dangerous schemes which will, in fact, undermine Social Security, such as privatization.
Max Baucus
Injustice, poverty, slavery, ignorance – these may be cured by reform or revolution. But men do not live only by fighting evils. They live by positive goals, individual and collective, a vast variety of them, seldom predictable, at times incompatible.
Isaiah Berlin
The more I loved the king, the more I opposed his injustice until his brow fell lowering upon me. He heaped calumny after calumny on my head, and I chose to be driven out rather than to subscribe.
Thomas Becket
There’s something in the cross that says this is not just about my “salvation” but about the “salvation” of all those who suffer injustice and inequality.
Mel White
Sometimes life puts too big weights on little shoulders and the reply of little shoulders to this injustice is remarkable: To carry the burden with courage and dignity!
Mehmet Murat Ildan
Women have a better chance to secure freedom and protect themselves from violence, from abuse, from injustice, if they are well-educated and know their rights.
Laura Bush
Law never made men a whit more just; and, by means of their respect for it, even the well-disposed are daily made the agents of injustice.
Henry David Thoreau
It may be only small injustice that the child can be exposed to; but the child is small, and its world is small, and its rocking-horse stands as many hands high, according to scale, as a big-boned Irish hunter.
Charles Dickens
I’m not a historian. I’m a politician. What is important for us is that the countries of the region and the people grow closer to each other, and that they are able to prevent aggression and injustice.
Hassan Rouhani
I am not saying that a female-dominated or Amazon society based on the oppression of men is any more “just” than is a male-dominated society based on the oppression of women. I am merely pointing out in what ways it is better for women. [В¶] Perhaps someday a choice between forms of injustice will not be necessary.
Phyllis Chesler
The American people cannot close their eyes to abuses of human rights and injustice, whether they occur among friend or adversary or even on our own shores.
Ronald Reagan
Justice is my being allowed to do whatever I like. Injustice is whatever prevents my doing so.
Samuel Butler
If your community is founded on an injustice, that injustice cannot be questioned.
Derrick Jensen
Worthy of honor is he who does no injustice, and more than twofold honor, if he not only does no injustice himself, but hinders others from doing any.
The Old Testament filled this world with tyranny and injustice, and the New gives us a future filled with pain for nearly all of the sons of men. The Old Testament describes the hell of the past, and the New the hell of the future.
Robert Green Ingersoll
God places us in the world as his fellow workers-agents of transfiguration. We work with God so that injustice is transfigured into justice, so there will be more compassion and caring, that there will be more laughter and joy, that there will be more togetherness in God’s world.
Desmond Tutu
Proprietary software is an injustice.
Richard Stallman
The more money spent by government to address social injustice the greater the cries of social injustice.
James Cook
That religion and that nation will be blotted out of the face of the earth which pins its faith on injustice, untruth or violence.
Mahatma Gandhi
To be social is to be forgiving.
Robert Frost
The value of a dollar is social, as it is created by society.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Especially as a teenager, I was always being racially profiled by the police. You just see all this injustice, and you want to do something about it, but you don’t know how.
Dolores Huerta
We cannot run away from the TB epidemic. It is a moral injustice.
Michel Sidibe
In short, there are certain fundamental requisites for wise and resolute democratic leadership. It must build on hope, not on fear; on honesty, not on falsehood; on justice, not on injustice; on public tranquility, not on violence; on freedom, not on enslavement.
Edmund Ezra Day
I understand that you’re supposed to protect a fellow officer, but when injustice is happening, it’s on them to speak up as well.
Brandon Marshall
Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them.
Frederick Douglass
Even injustice has it’s good points. It gives me the challenge of being as happy as I can in an unfair world.
Albert Ellis
I know the world is filled with troubles and many injustices. But reality is as beautiful as it is ugly. I think it is just as important to sing about beautiful mornings as it is to talk about slums. I just couldn’t write anything without hope in it.
Oscar Hammerstein II
What a war in Iraq will not do is bring about peace in the Middle East or end the injustices that feed resentment and breed terrorists.
Nicola Sturgeon
Delay in justice is injustice.
Walter Savage Landor
Except among those whose education has been in the minimalist style, it is understood that hasty moral judgments about the past are a form of injustice.
Jacques Barzun
The tyranny that now exists is actual. That which may exist in the future is potential. If we are always to draw back from change with the thought that the change may be for the worse, then there is no hope at all of ever escaping injustice.
Isaac Asimov
There are things I take sides about, like capital punishment, which it seems to me there is only one side about: it is evil. But there are two or three sides to sexual harassment, and the moment you get into particular cases, there is injustice in every conceivable direction. It’s a mess.
A. S. Byatt
I saw that the camera could be a weapon against poverty, against racism, against all sorts of social wrongs. I knew at that point I had to have a camera.
Gordon Parks
If an injustice requires you to be the agent of injustice to another, then, I say, break the law. Let your life be a counter-friction to stop the government machine.
Henry David Thoreau
I believe that one always does himself and his audience an injustice when he speaks merely for the sake of speaking. I do not believe that one should speak unless, deep down in his heart, he feels convinced that he has a message to deliver.
Booker T. Washington
If, at the limit, you can rule without crime, you cannot do so without injustices.
Emil Cioran
Don’t stand back with your arms folded; step forward… There is hope and light to resist injustice and promote peace without violence.
Adolfo Perez Esquivel
Valor would cease to be a virtue, if there were no injustice.
Agesilaus II
It’s the same story as when we nationalized the banks. I’m not for nationalization because of the rhetoric of nationalization, or because I see in nationalization the cure-all for every injustice. I’m for nationalization in cases where it’s necessary.
Indira Gandhi
There can be no peace as long as there is grinding poverty, social injustice, inequality, oppression, environmental degradation, and as long as the weak and small continue to be trodden by the mighty and powerful.
Dalai Lama
It is not by great acts but by small failures that freedom dies. . . . Justice and liberty die quietly, because men first learn to ignore injustice and then no longer recognize it.
Charles Morgan, Jr.
Letting a maximum number of views be heard regularly is not just a nice philosophical notion. It is the best way any society has yet discovered to detect maladjustments quickly, to correct injustices, and to discover new ways to meet our continuing stream of novel problems that rise in a changing environment.
Ben Bagdikian
So more and more black folk tend to be well-adjusted to [Barack] Obama’s presidency, but does that mean they’re well-adjusted to injustice? Because we don’t hear our president talking about the new Jim Crow, the prison-industrial complex.
Cornel West
There is so much inequality and injustice in America, and COVID-19 has exposed that even more. We have to really understand that this is a wake up call; this is a time of action.
Dominique Crenn
At a time when India is going through great changes and, with China, is likely to inherit the world from the west, it is important that writers like me try to highlight the brutal injustices of society.
Aravind Adiga
There is no injustice in the grace of God. God is as just when He forgives a believer as when He casts a sinner into hell.
Charles Spurgeon
It is shameful that millions of Americans are suffering the economic injustice of working a full-time job and earning a wage that leaves them below the poverty line.
Bill Pascrell
I realized that my righteous indignation was a form of entertainment for me. I loved getting pissed off at injustice. I didn’t do anything about it, I just liked the feeling of being pissed off.
Harold Ramis
Human beings are not our enemy. Our enemy is not the other person. Our enemy is the violence, ignorance, and injustice in us and in the other person. When we are armed with compassion and understanding, we fight not against other people, but against the tendency to invade, to dominate, and to exploit.
Nhat Hanh
I’ve always been interested in justice. I think what is happening to the Palestinians represents the ultimate injustice. I also hate bullies and the effect of them, the way people side with them out of fear. The Israelis are the schoolyard bullies, with England and the United States siding with them.
Bella Freud
In my shows, I always try to incorporate music because it’s the most natural way to set a tone. So if I want to do a show about depression, I use the opera. If I want to do a show about greed, I use spoken word. If I want to do a show about the injustice that’s taking place in the world, I might play Sam Cooke.
Kerby Jean-Raymond
Mr. Washington apologizes for injustice, he belittles the emasculating effects of caste distinctions, and opposes the higher training and ambitions of our brighter minds. The way for people to gain their reasonable rights is not by voluntarily throwing them away.
W. E. B. Du Bois
But I also think all of the great stories in literature deal with loneliness. Sometimes it’s by way of heartbreak, sometimes it’s by way of injustice, sometimes it’s by way of fate. There’s an infinite number of ways to examine it.
Tom Hanks
A rule without exceptions is an instrument capable of doing mischief to the innocent and bringing grief – as well as injustice – to those who should gain exemptions from the rule’s functioning.
Derrick Bell
Not every bad break is negative in the long term; not every problem is a bona fide injustice; and not every injustice is major when juxtaposed against the millions of injustices that occur daily throughout the world.
Robert Ringer
To me, my version of feminism, it’s co-extensive with human rights and democracy. It’s just part of the same fight for everyone being free, and having autonomy and dignity. It’s not pitting one gender against another, it’s not saying anything is better, it’s just clearing away injustice.
Naomi Wolf
Since when do we have to agree with people to defend them from injustice?
Lillian Hellman
If we don’t stop somewhere, if we don’t accept an unhappy compromise, unhappy for both sides, if we don’t learn how to unhappily coexist and contain our burned sense of injustice – if we don’t learn how to do that, we end up in a doomed state.
Amos Oz
If men think that a ruler is religious and has a reverence for the Gods, they are less afraid of suffering injustice at his hands.
Where there is no property there is no injustice.
John Locke
The personal stories of disabled people suffering injustice, cruelty and ignorance are heart-breaking.
Penny Mordaunt
Compassion allows us to bear witness to suffering, whether it is in ourselves or others, without fear; it allows us to name injustice without hesitation, to act strongly, with all the skill at our disposal.
Sharon Salzberg
Keeping books on social aid is capitalistic nonsense. I just use the money for the poor. I can’t stop to count it.
Evita Peron
Always walking along despite the dangers and adversities, despite the injustices and horrors, trusting in God so as not to despair of men and events.
Tariq Ramadan
In this way, writers are indeed, as Henry Miller suggested, traitors to the human race. We may turn a light on inequity, injustice, and oppression from time to time, but we regularly kill what we love in insidious fashion.
Anthony Bourdain
Most pastors railing against gay marriage have never cried out on racism, any type of injustice or police brutality. They’ve never once made a statement about health care. Many of them are silent on community issues. They are very silent, but they have become the leaders of this particular movement.
Otis Moss III
When I was young, I also saw a lot of injustices around me lived by women.
Maimouna Doucoure
It is a great paradox and a great injustice that writers write because we fear death and want to leave something indestructible in our wake and, at the same time, are drawn to all the things that kill: whiskey and cigarettes, unprotected sex, and deep-fried burritos.
Ariel Gore
Passion is the rocket fuel that helps you perform at your best. It helps you get through bad days, injustices, hardships and disappointments. It is hard to perform at a high level for a sustained period of time without passion for what you’re doing.
Robert S. Kaplan
I hadn’t fought enough for the injustice of the Apartheid.
Arnon Milchan
I will not tolerate injustice.
Zareen Khan
It is better to have a war for justice than peace in injustice.
Charles Peguy
No democracy can exist unless each of its citizens is as capable of outrage at injustice to another as he is of outrage at unjustice to himself.
Wherever there is degeneration and apathy, there also is sexual perversion, cold depravity, miscarriage, premature old age, grumbling youth, there is a decline in the arts, indifference to science, and injustice in all its forms.
Anton Chekhov
I mostly want to highlight things that feel like an injustice, and that’s not really political. No one is going to – or should – say that bigotry toward Muslims is partisan. It’s a matter of being just or not being just. So that’s why I started calling myself a social justice comedian.
Negin Farsad
Awkwardness comes from the realization that, when you look around the world, it’s difficult to identify anyone who isn’t either the victim or the beneficiary of injustice.
Elif Batuman
I’d like to believe that I would be able to give in the same way Mandela did, but in reality, I don’t know whether that is true. It is much more likely that I would be left with an immense sense of injustice and immense desire for revenge.
Naomie Harris
Maturity is the ability to do a job whether you’re supervised or not; finish a job once it’s started; carry money without spending it; and the ability to bear an injustice without wanting to get even.
Abigail Van Buren
‎It is a cruel injustice to tell a bootless man to pull himself up by his bootstraps.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Man prefers to blame himself for all possible sins and crimes rather than come to the conclusion that God is capable of the most flagrant injustice. I still blush every time I think of the way God makes fun of human beings, his favorite toys.
Elie Wiesel
Communism will never be defeated by atomic bombs. Our greatest defense against Communism is to take offensive action on behalf of justice and righteousness. We must seek to remove conditions of poverty, injustice, and racial discrimination.

Surely the greatest social injustice is that 2 billion people haven’t heard of God’s love in Christ.
David Platt
For the world to become a better place, someone has to pay a price, I think it’s glorious to sacrifice for the sake of social progress and fighting injustice.
Xu Zhiyong
The law cannot save those who deny it but neither can the law serve any who do not use it. The history of injustice and inequality is a history of disuse of the law.
Lyndon B. Johnson
What she had believed was indignation or rage or a deep intolerance for injustice came down to this: she was irreducibly in love with this bewitching planet, this thrilling life, this heartbreaking species she belonged to, with its capacity for stupefying destruction and breathtaking magnanimity.
Thrity Umrigar

I had a beautiful childhood and a lovely childhood. I just didn’t like being a child. I didn’t like the rank injustice of not being listened to. I didn’t like the lack of autonomy.

Frederick William Robertson

William H. Wharton
Wisdom I know is social. She seeks her fellows. But Beauty is jealous, and illy bears the presence of a rival.

Nelson Mandela
As a woman, my stance is that I’m a fighter, and in no way will I support any kind of injustice against women in our society.

Franz Kafka
Do everything possible so that liberty is victorious over oppression, justice over injustice, love over hate.
Ignacio Ellacuria
What the Black lives matter movement is doing is they are making it personal. They are making it hash tagged, exposing the racial injustice that continues to haunt our country in a way that you can’t ignore. There is power in injustice becoming personal.
Shane Claiborne
This policy represents a massive injustice against Iraqi civilians, … and it must be ended – not after Mr. Clinton leaves office, but now.

John W. Snow
The tongue may be employed about, and made to serve all the purposes of vice, in tempting and deceiving, in perjury and injustice.
Joseph Butler
Map reconciles himself to almost any event, however trying, if it happens in the ordinary course of nature. It is the extraordinary alone that he rebels against. There is a moral idea associated with this feeling; for the extraordinary appears to be something like an injustice of heaven.
Wilhelm von Humboldt
Instead of hating the people you think are war-makers, hate the appetites and disorder in your own soul, which are the causes of war. If you love peace, then hate injustice, hate tyranny, hate greed – but hate these things in yourself, not in another.
Thomas Merton
A man may be outlawed for the sake of a fish net he has never seen.
Selma Lagerlöf

Fannie Barrier Williams
In a war situation or where violence and injustice are prevalent, poetry is called upon to be something more than a thing of beauty.

Mary Baker Eddy
If you look at any other group of people suffering injustice, women are always in the worst situation within that group.

Carl Hiaasen
Some people, their whole lives, are just injustice collectors. They’re going to find new injustices every day. That’s what they do, and that’s what they are.

Johnnetta B. Cole
I refuse to be one of those people who watches injustices yet does nothing.

I yield to no one in my admiration for the office as a social center, but it’s no place actually to get any work done.
Katharine Whitehorn
Since the world has existed, there has been injustice. But it is one world, the more so as it becomes smaller, more accessible. There is just no question that there is more obligation that those who have should give to those who have nothing.
Audrey Hepburn
In addition to world conflicts, the most challenging problem we face today is hunger, deprivation and social injustice. Because we’re ruled by separate self-interest, we go on accumulating personal wealth, ignoring the well being of the others.

Gabriella Wilson
There is a power that can be created out of pent-up indignation, courage, and the inspiration of a common cause, and that if enough people put their minds and bodies into that cause, they can win.

Kevin Starr

Chen Guangcheng
If your white privilege and class privilege protects you, then you have an obligation to use that privilege to take stands that work to end the injustice that grants that privilege in the first place.

Aisha Hinds
I recoil with horror at the ferociousness of man. Will nations never devise a more rational umpire of differences than force? Are there no means of coercing injustice more gratifying to our nature than a waste of the blood of thousands and of the labor of millions of our fellow creatures?
Thomas Jefferson
We are the folk song army, every one of us cares. We all hate poverty, war, and injustice unlike the rest of you squares.

Anupam Kher
Better still – your history has shown how powerful a moral catharsis expressed through popular resistance to injustice can sometimes be; I have in mind the grassroots opposition to the Vietnam War.
Breyten Breytenbach
In my opinion, the unjust man whose tongue is full of glozing rhetoric, merits the heaviest punishment; vaunting that he can with his tongue gloze over injustice, he dares to act wickedly, yet he is not over-wise.
I don’t mind expressing my opinions and speaking out against injustice. I would be doing this even if I wasn’t a writer. I grew up in a household that believed in social justice.

When one in three Black men are in prison, those larger systemic injustices become a part of what it means to love our neighbor as ourself. We care about dismantling institutional racism. That begins in relationships when you see injustice happen.

Bob Menendez

Jurnee Smollett-Bell
The moral man is he who is opposed to injustice per se, opposed to injustice wherever he finds it; the moral man looks for injustice first of all in himself.

Stewart Lee
To allow injustice and inequality invites a Ferguson to your community. We must stand together, black, white, brown, red, and yellow and fight for justice and equality for all. It’s the only way to avoid more Fergusons.

Joan Cusack

Shami Chakrabarti

Cesare Beccaria
When I got cleared by doctors and was coronavirus-free, one of the first things I did was get to marching in Boston.

William Faulkner

Elizabeth Missing Sewell
Real love cannot be silent in the face of injustice.
Mel White
The only factor that poses a genuine challenge to the current order is the willingness of human beings to reject the injustice and irrationality of this economy, and stand up for something better. Capitalism will not fall-rather, it must be pushed.

While we lament the apparent injustice of pain and suffering, how often do we forget that every good thing in a fallen world is wholly a gift of God’s mercy and grace.
Matt Chandler
Human nature must have come much nearer perfection than it is now, or will be in many generations, to exclude from such a control prejudice, selfishness, ambition, and injustice.
Elihu Root

Juan Goytisolo
Salander never forgets an injustice, and by nature she was anything but forgiving.
Steig Larsson
What is the use of this fuss about morality when the issue only involves a horse? The first and most difficult teaching of civilisation concerns man’s behaviour to his inferiors. Make humanity gentle or reasonable toward animals, and strife or injustice between human beings would speedily terminate.
Edward Mayhew
What irritates me is the bland way people go around saying, ‘Oh, our attitude has changed. We don’t dislike these people any more.’ But by the strangest coincidence, they haven’t taken away the injustice; the laws are still on the books.

John Henninger Reagan

I had the good fortune to be able to right an injustice that I thought was being heaped on young people by lowering the voting age, where you had young people that were old enough to die in Vietnam but not old enough to vote for their members of Congress that sent them there.
Birch Bayh
Just as we demand that people take responsibility for their actions, we as a society must take responsibility for fighting injustice.
Eric Schneiderman
The Olympic Movement is a 20th century religion. Where there is no injustice of caste, of race, of family, of wealth.
Avery Brundage
For me, acting is all about the aesthetic. I just want to keep honing my craft. Not that I’m taking myself too seriously, but every artist should consider himself Picasso. Otherwise, you’re doing yourself an injustice.
Giovanni Ribisi
It would be extremely naive to expect the dominant classes to develop a type of education that would enable subordinate classes to perceive social injustices critically.
Paulo Freire
To claim for socialism that it is a class war is to do it an injustice and indefinitely postpone its triumph. Socialism offers a platform broad enough for all to stand upon. It makes war upon a system, not upon a class.
Keir Hardie
I can’t help but believe that at some time in the not-too-distant future, there is going to be another movement to change these systemic conditions of poverty, injustice, and violence in people’s lives. That is where we’ve got to go, and it is going to be a struggle.
Coretta Scott King
I imagine witches to be people who sit around like my witty grandmother, people who are injustice collectors or humiliation collectors. I choose to imagine that’s what a witch is. The reason witches are so evil is because they’re so unhappy and so hurt.
Lore Segal
Battling evil, cruelty, and injustice allows us to retain our identity, a sense of meaning, and ultimately our freedom.
Chris Hedges
We have more than enough programs, organisations, parties, and strategies in the world for the alleviation of suffering and injustice.
Sulak Sivaraksa
Injustice is censured because the censures are afraid of suffering, and not from any fear which they have of doing injustice.
Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have found out the exact measure of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them, and these will continue till they are resisted with either words or blows, or with both.
Frederick Douglass
National injustice is the surest road to national downfall.
William E. Gladstone
Today, most Americans are too cynical, or tired, or both, to even approximate our Founders’ courageous repudiation of injustice.
Marianne Williamson
Extreme justice is extreme injustice.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
Justice is achieved only when injustice is absent.
Frederic Bastiat
When people hear the term ‘political prisoner,’ especially on the Left, it becomes a kind of abstraction. Folks are aware of injustice, and they’re aware that there are folks in prison who are in prison, you know, largely because of their activism.
Ta-Nehisi Coates
Ah, how unjust to Nature and himself Is thoughtless, thankless, inconsistent man!
Edward Young
Injustice is either very blatant – you walk down the street and someone calls you a name; you don’t get a job because of your gender or your skin color or your sexual preference – but injustice is also very subliminal.
Jurnee Smollett-Bell
We recognise the link between environmental failure and social injustice. When the energy sector is privatised and deregulated, it not only tends to pollute more, it also charges the poorest more per unit!
Barry Gardiner
We cannot afford to regard as normal the presence of injustice, inhumanity, and violence, including their verbal and cyber manifestations.
Bernice King
The mind of the thinker and the student is driven to admit, though it be awe-struck by apparent injustice, that this inequality is the work of God. Make all men equal to-day, and God has so created them that they shall be all unequal to-morrow.
Anthony Trollope
Honest people, mistakenly believing in the justice of their cause, are led to support injustice.
Elihu Root
Reading put perspective to any challenge I was facing and made me see that extraordinary people usually had extraordinary pain, difficulties or injustices. That’s part of why they have the drive and hunger to do good in the world, to make something happen.
Tony Robbins
I still have a righteous indignation at injustice, no matter what form it takes. It could be homophobia, it could be white supremacy, male supremacy, imperial arrogance, class subordination or whatever.
Cornel West
Senator Badger did not call. During the whole of the last session of Congress, he did not call on me. He is a bitter partisan and is no doubt sensible that during the presidential canvass of 1844, he did me gross injustice.
James K. Polk
We cannot handle injustice by finding more ways to impose what is in fact “right” on people. It has to come from the inside. And that’s where the church should be working.
Dallas Willard
The only government that I recognize–and it matters not how few are at the head of it, or how small its army–is that power thatestablishes justice in the land, never that which establishes injustice.
Henry David Thoreau
It’s a great humanitarian injustice. Their families are here and they’ve been here. It’s long past time for them to be reunited.
Jeff Cohen
Injustice and corruption will never be transformed by keeping them hidden, but only by bringing them out into the light and confronting them with the power of love.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
By isolating the issues of race, gender, sexual orientation, climate change, environment, governance, economics, catastrophe and whatever other problems the present embodies or the future may bring, science fiction can do what Dickens and Sinclair did: make real the consequences of social injustice or human folly.
James Gunn
Every time we witness an injustice and do not act, we train our character to be passive in its presence and thereby eventually lose all ability to defend ourselves and those we love.
Julian Assange
A just law is a man-made code that squares with the moral law or the law of God. An unjust law is a code that is out of harmony with the moral law. To put it in the terms of Saint Thomas Aquinas, an unjust law is a human law that is not rooted in eternal and natural law.
Martin Luther
The only thing that permits us to acquiesce in an erroneous theory is the lack of a better one, analogously, an injustice is tolerable only when it is necessary to avoid an even greater injustice.
John Rawls
Whenever there is injustice, there is tension. But in China it is very hard to release your anger unless you burn yourself or you jump from a bridge. In a society where there is no freedom of the press, it is difficult for victims to be noticed.
Ai Weiwei
Every fair-minded person holding a position of authority must support the few who have stood up against the injustice being perpetrated in the name of blasphemy.
Asma Jahangir
Most people will not stand up to injustice unless their comfort of living is severely threatened. This is because today’s man does not care for the outside world so long as he has a roof over his head and four walls to contain his own.
Suzy Kassem
Fern was up at daylight, trying to rid the world of injustice. As a result, she now has a pig. A small one to be sure, but nevertheless a pig. It just shows what can happen if a person gets out of bed promptly.
E. B. White
I think just as a person, if you say you follow Christ, you have to stand up for the injustices that are going on in the world.
The Rocket Summer
What both the state and the capitalist economy oppose is an understanding of what might be called “the true nature of things” (using the phrase without metaphysical pretensions), especially injustices and exploitative practices.
Richard A. Falk
Love conquers all – love is the grace that transcends any kind of injustice in the end.
Mark Ruffalo
Menon the Thessalian did not either conceal his immoderate desire of riches or his desire of commanding, in order to increase them, or of being esteemed for the same reason. He desired to be well with those in power, that his injustice might escape punishment.
The greatest problem is not with flat-out white racists, but rather with the far larger number of Americans who believe intellectually in racial equality but are quietly oblivious to injustice around them.
Nicholas Kristof
When innocence trembles, it condemns the judge.
Publilius Syrus
Nobody can write such ironic things unless he has a deep sense of injustice-injustice to those members of the race who are victims of the stupid, the pretentious and the hypocritical.
Franklin P. Adams
When I served as a prosecutor, I saw firsthand the many injustices that are embedded in our communities. But I also saw the difference it can make in someone’s life when they have someone to stand up and fight for them.
Conner Eldridge
It is better to protest than to accept injustice.
Rosa Parks
We can today open wide the history of their administrations and point with pride to every act, and challenge the world to point out a single act stained with injustice to the North, or with partiality to their own section.
Robert Toombs
Better the whole people perish than that injustice be done
Immanuel Kant
No, feminism isn’t ‘over.’ We need it not only to challenge injustice but because the whole gender expectations thing is bad for men, too.
Robert Webb
I think in order to write really well and convincingly, one must be somewhat poisoned by emotion, dislike, displeasure, resentment, fault-finding, imagination, passionate remonstrance, a sense of injustice-they all make fine fuel.
Edna Ferber
Like a boil that must be opened with all its ugliness to the natural medicines of air and light, injustice must be exposed to the light of human conscience before it can be cured.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Sin is cruelty and injustice, all else is peccadillo.
Robert A. Heinlein
I have a strong sense of injustice and not admitting things just because that is the way someone says it should be. I need to understand. I need to agree.
Sylvie Guillem
I believe in honesty and integrity, having a belief system that you’ve thought through and then stick to. I believe in being creative and contributing, and I believe in taking a stand against injustice that you encounter in everyday life and not being idle in that respect.
Talulah Riley
When struck on one cheek to turn the other, is really joining a conspiracy to secure the triumph of brutality. To agree not to resist evil is to become an accomplice of all injustice.
Robert Green Ingersoll
Every social injustice is not only cruel, but it is economic waste.
William Feather
He (Thomas Paine) saw oppression on every hand; injustice everywhere; hypocrisy at the altar; venality on the bench, tyranny on the throne; and with a splendid courage he espoused the cause of the weak against the strong
Robert Green Ingersoll
My first civil disobedience arrest for social justice was in 1986 for protesting the SDI.
Martin Sheen
Of course we as Labour Party members must all be free to criticise and oppose injustice and abuse wherever we find it. But as today’s Report recommends, can we please leave Hitler and Nazi metaphors alone (especially in the context of Israel). Why? Because the Shoah is still in people’s family experience.
Jeremy Corbyn
If there is no truth, there is no injustice.
Norman Geras
As I like to say to the people in Montgomery: “The tension in this city is not between white people and Negro people. The tension is, at bottom, between justice and injustice, between the forces of light and the forces of darkness.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
No child should die in the dawn of life.
Danny Thomas
Why are so many problems today perceived as problems of intolerance, rather than as problems of inequality, exploitation, or injustice? Why is the proposed remedy tolerance, rather than emancipation, political struggle, or even armed struggle?
Slavoj ЕЅiЕѕek
Every time we witness an act that we feel to be unjust and do not act, we become a party to injustice.
Julian Assange
Pope John Paul II not only visited Nigeria twice but stood by the country in its fight against dictatorship and injustice.
Olusegun Obasanjo
In spiritual maturity, the opposite of injustice is not justice but compassion.
Joko Beck
To do injustice is the greatest of all evils.
You should be dynamic, and still be soft in the heart.
You should stand against injustice and simultaneously, be compassionate within you, like a saint.
Be a saint and a soldier, together
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
If thou suffer injustice, console thyself; the true unhappiness is in doing it.
There’s still injustice happening in my world. I sing my songs at concerts and I’m so grateful that the people are ready to hear them.
Mavis Staples
It would, I think, be hard for anyone to make the case that the United States is a just society or anything close to a just society. In America today, there is massive injustice in terms of income and wealth inequality. Injustice is rampant.
Bernie Sanders
The appalling racial injustice inherent in the Trayvon Martin tragedy reminds us that there is still much to do.
Martin Luther King III
He who bears injustice alone is terrible to behold.
Friedrich Nietzsche
The poorest being that crawls on earth, contending to save itself from injustice and oppression, is an object respectable in the eyes of God and man.
Edmund Burke
I think it’s an injustice that most consumers going to the supermarket have so few options for fruit and vegetables to feed their families. There might be the appearance of abundance, but it’s an illusion.
Bryant Terry
Our enemies … seem always with us. The greater our hatred the more persistent the memory of them so that a truly terrible enemy becomes deathless. So that the man who has done you great injury or injustice makes himself a guest in your house forever. Perhaps only forgiveness can dislodge him.
Cormac McCarthy
Writers seem to me to be people who need to retire from social life and do a lot of thinking about what’s happened – almost to calm themselves.
Helen Garner
On my door is a cartoon of two turtles. One says, ‘Sometimes I would like to ask why he allows poverty, famine and injustice when he could do something about it.’ The other turtle says ‘I am afraid that God might ask me the same question.’
Peter Kreeft
In the end, madness is worse than injustice, and justice far sweeter than freedom.
Hisham Matar
The human animal has evolved as a preeminently social animal.
Leon Kass
A God all mercy is a God unjust.
Edward Young
The late Nadine Gordimer in South Africa, for example, had a wonderful ability to get her country’s injustices and contradictions down on paper. Ditto for her countryman the great playwright Athol Fugard.
Adam Hochschild
Every great example of punishment has in it some injustice, but the suffering individual is compensated by the public good.
It is manifest that the only security against the tyranny of the government lies in forcible resistance to the execution of the injustice; because the injustice will certainly be executed, unless it be forcibly resisted.
Lysander Spooner
I tend to write two stories every day, five days a week. It’s a real grind. But it also allows me to really try to have my finger on the pulse of injustice in America.
Shaun King
God save us from idealists! They dream of a world without injustice, and what crime won’t they commit to get it! I swear, Mirella, I’ll settle for a world with good manners.
Mary Doria Russell
Nothing exists except by virtue of a disequilibrium, an injustice. All existence is a theft paid for by other existences; no life flowers except on a cemetery.
Remy de Gourmont
I have not personally suffered from the deprivations, the bitterness and sorrow which bring so many men and women to a realisation of social injustice.
Emmeline Pankhurst
It is for real that injustice and oppression will not have the last word. There was a time when Hitler looked like he was going to vanquish all of Europe, and where is he now?
Desmond Tutu
Those called to the service of governance in the church need to have a strong sense of justice, so that any form of injustice becomes unacceptable.
Pope Francis
Revolution that divests itself of ethical values thereby lays the foundation of injustice, deceit, and oppression for the future society.
Emma Goldman
We will change things if people stand up for what they believe in against injustice and death to save themselves and the future of America – and the world.
David Hogg
If a man meets with injustice, it is not required that he shall not be roused to meet it; but if he is angry after he has had time to think upon it, that is sinful. The flame is not wrong, but the coals are.
Henry Ward Beecher
We as people often subscribe to hope to feel better about our lives, to escape the harsh and sometimes cruel injustices of the world.
Aml Ameen
But injustice breeds injustice; the fighting with shadows and being defeated by them necessitates the setting up of substances to combat.
Charles Dickens
The King can do no wrong; he cannot constitutionally be supposed capable of injustice.
John Nichol
We should retain our anger in the face of injustice and not be shamed by that.
Margaret Cho
The only protection against INJUSTICE in man is POWER?Physical, financial and scientific.
Marcus Garvey
Religion is a means of exploitation employed by the strong against the weak; religion is a cloak of ambition, injustice and vice.
Georges Bizet
There can be no criminal intent in resisting injustice.
Lysander Spooner
You just need to be a flea against injustice. Enough committed fleas biting strategically can make even the biggest dog uncomfortable and transform even the biggest nation.
Marian Wright Edelman
Justice belongs to those who claim it, but let the claimant beware lest he create new injustice by his claim and thus set the bloody pendulum of revenge into its inexorable motion
Frank Herbert
I am not a philosopher, only frustrated by the development of the world we live in – and too stupid to keep my mouth shut when I see injustice.
Varg Vikernes
The fact that he didn’t get credit for a while is more the story of social injustice. But his own spirit wasn’t driven by that, and wasn’t dependent upon that. He just wished he had the cash to go to medical school.
Mary Stuart Masterson
In any nonviolent campaign there are four basic steps: collection of the facts to determine whether injustices exist; negotiation; self-purification; and direct action.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Kneeling for the anthem does nothing to advance solutions to racial injustice, police brutality, or any other social plight. It is a slap in the face to patriotism itself. It is a statement that America as a country is no longer worth standing for.
Matt Gaetz
In the part of this universe that we know there is great injustice, and often the good suffer, and often the wicked prosper, and one hardly knows which of those is the more annoying.
Bertrand Russell
I’m sure it’s very obvious . . . how upset I am with incompetence and the lack of common sense in life. If I can sum up the reason . . . it’s that these characteristics are not benign. They are responsible for much, if not most, of the great problems, misery, and injustice in the world.
Vincent Bugliosi
I love it when people try to manufacture an injustice out of a position of clear superiority.
Richard Herring
There are two great injustices that can befall a child. One is to punish him for something he didn’t do. The other is to let him get away with doing something he knows is wrong.
Robert Gardner
Never stand idly while people commit what you know to be an injustice! Injustice only leads to more injustice!
Robert Kiyosaki
Injustice experienced in the flesh, in deeply wounded flesh, is the stuff out of which change explodes.
Margaret Mead
The sun of a prince’s good graces resembles that in the skies in that it shines most kindly upon the blackest people.
Franz Grillparzer
Duryodhan was a prince fighting for his throne. He was powered by ambition and aspiration. Parshuram is godly. His fight is against injustice at a larger societal level. I’ve enjoyed playing both the characters.
Puneet Issar
We must be greater than God, for we have to undo His injustice.
Jules Renard
Black lives matter, as a subset of all lives matter. So any injustices to a particular group must be addressed specific to that group but under the banner that all life is created in the image of God.
Tony Evans
If it is nothingness that awaits us, let us make an injustice of it; let us fight against destiny, even though without hope of victory.
Miguel de Unamuno
After all, I do not have so many ways of proving that I am free. We is always free at the expense of someone else. It is a bother,but it is normal.
Albert Camus
Nothing can make injustice just but mercy.
Robert Frost
Players who take a knee during the national anthem do so to protest injustice across the country – fulfilling a patriotic duty to never accept injustice, but to call it out when we see it.
Ayanna Pressley
Let woman’s claim be as broad in the concrete as the abstract. We take our stand on the solidarity of humanity, the oneness of life, and the unnaturalness and injustice of all special favoritism, whether of sex, race, country, or condition. If one link of the chain is broken, the chain is broken.
Anna Julia Cooper
More than anything, I felt the unfairness of it, the inarguable injustice of loving someone who might have loved you back but can’t due to deadness, and then I leaned forward, my forehead against the back of Takumi’s headrest, and I cried, whimpering, and I didn’t even feel sadness so much as pain.
John Green
What matters is that the majority of American people have become complacent in a senseless injustice that occurs all around them. What matters is that most American politicians have become more easily swayed by money than by the people who voted them into office.
Emma Gonzalez
I’m usually torn by, ‘What’s the role of government to cure injustice?’ Families, churches, and schools can be more of an instrument of change.
Ander Crenshaw
If you want to keep people subjugated, the last thing you place in their hands is a Bible. There’s nothing more radical, nothing more revolutionary, nothing more subversive against injustice and oppression than the Bible.
Desmond Tutu
Innate in nearly every artistic nature is a wanton, treacherous penchant for accepting injustice when it creates beauty and showing sympathy for and paying homage to aristocratic privilege.
Thomas Mann
When the prizes fall to the lot of the wicked, you will not find many who
are virtuous for virtue’s sake.
The miser, starving his brother’s body, starves also his own soul, and at death shall creep out of his great estate of injustice, poor and naked and miserable
Theodore Parker
It is of great importance in a republic, not only to guard the society against the oppression of its rulers; but to guard one part of the society against the injustice of the other part.
James Madison
It is always difficult to escape from youth; its hopefulness, its optimistic belief in the privileges of desire, its despair, and its sense of outrage and injustice at disappointment, all these spring on a man inflicting indelicate agony when he is no longer prepared.
Margery Allingham
It’s time to realize that one cannot combat one injustice by invoking and using another injustice
Sergey Lavrov
The apology, that is constantly put forth for the injustice of government, viz., that a man must consent to give up some of his rights, in order to have his other rights protected – involves a palpable absurdity, both legally and politically.
Lysander Spooner
Instead of building the peace by attacking injustices like starvation, disease, illiteracy, political and economic servitude, we spend a trillion dollars on war since 1946, until hatred and conflict have become the international preoccupation.
Daniel Berrigan
If, at the limit, you can rule without crime, you cannot do so without injustices.
Emile M. Cioran
I am appalled by the great injustice being perpetrated by those Jewish organizations that engage in anti-Christian bigotry.
Daniel Lapin
The injustice done to an individual is sometimes of service to the public.
I believe in pride of race and lineage and self: in pride of self so deep as to scorn injustice to other selves.
W. E. B. Du Bois
Uncertain justice by a verdict is much better than certain injustice.
William Murray, 1st Earl of Mansfield
I know there is a God, and that He hates injustice and slavery. I see the storm coming, and I know that his hand is in it. If He has a place and work for me – and I think He has – I believe I am ready.
Abraham Lincoln
The wars of today, the terrorism of today, are the result of injustice, and that injustice is the Outcome of our greedy, selfish, competitive way of working through commercialization and market forces.
Benjamin Creme
Greed is the inventor of injustice as well as the current enforcer.
Julian Casablancas
Well, Marx is having a comeback. I hear him mentioned a lot in terms of the global financial situation and the general sense of injustice out there. A lot of economic experts in America refer to him without actually using the M word, but he’s around.
David Byrne
I saw the suffering and I let myself feel it… I saw the injustice and was compelled to do something about it. I changed from being a nun who only prayed for the suffering world to a woman with my sleeves rolled up, living my prayer.
Helen Prejean
I feel that it’s very important for young people to have a sense of history and do research and don’t re-invent the wheel and don’t think that you’re the first martyr to discover social injustice but to take advantage of previous generations of activists and find out what they did and how they resolved things.
Ana Castillo
The injustice of men subserves the justice of God, and often His mercy.
Sophie Swetchine
To accuse is so easy that it is infamous to do so where proof is impossible!
Zoe Akins
To be angry is very good. It burns out things and leaves nutrients in the soil. You should always be ready to be angry at injustice and cruelty.
Maya Angelou
I am very hopeful that there is a solution to the Israeli/Palestinian injustice.
Mairead Corrigan
Enduring and forgiving are two different things. You must not forgive the cruelty of this world. It’s our duty as human beings to be angry at injustice. But we must also endure it. Because someone must sever this chain of hatred.
Hiromu Arakawa
Convention, so often a mask for injustice.
Edith Hamilton
… but it is human to be outraged by injustice, even to the point of courting destruction!
Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
A scared journalist produces a lifeless citizen. If our news is scared of the government, it is great injustice to readers and viewers who have been cheated in the name of news.
Ravish Kumar
And I’ve never taken up a sport just because it was a social fad.
Dinah Shore
Beware of injustice, for oppression will be darkness on the Day of Resurrection; and beware of stinginess because it doomed those who were before you. It incited them to shed blood and treat the unlawful as lawful.
One had better die fighting against injustice than die like a dog or a rat in a trap.
Ida B. Wells
Overcoming poverty is not a gesture of charity. It is an act of justice.
Nelson Mandela
Acts of injustice done
Between the setting and the rising sun
In history lie like bones, each one.
W. H. Auden
Men pray to the Almighty to relieve poverty. But poverty comes not from God’s laws-it is blasphemy of the worst kind to say that. Poverty comes from man’s injustice to his fellow man.
Leo Tolstoy
So how did I find my voice? Motherhood. There is nothing like having your child dealt an injustice, no matter how small, that gives you all the courage in the world to stand up and put your foot down.
Shweta Bachchan Nanda
The only duty an artist has is in the quality of the art. There is no moral obligation to denounce. An artist confronted with a tremendous injustice sometimes feels inclined to say something. Denouncing the situation is the artist’s choice.
Fernando Botero
A great mind is above insults, injustice, grief, and raillery, and would be invulnerable were it not open to compassion.
Jean de la Bruyere
We would, however, perform an injustice to the bourgeois women’s rights movement if we would regard it as solely motivated by economics. No, this movement also contains a more profound spiritual and moral aspect.
Clara Zetkin
What’s inspiring me the most [is] injustice. My own growth as a member of the human race, in terms of the veils being lifted, seeing more of the beauty and also the horror. A sense of my own purpose in this life. Love…
Ottessa Moshfegh
Everyone suffers some injustice in life, and what better motivation than to help others not suffer in the same way.
Bella Thorne
Her legacy was her quiet dignity and instinctive rage against injustice, … What she determined on the spot was that her dignity would not allow her to be treated unjustly.
Diane Watson
I hate injustice, and I can’t help but speak against it. But I don’t want to get involved in politics.
Serj Tankian
A personal injustice is stronger motivation than any instinct for philanthropy.
John Irving
The credit reporting system suffers from inaccuracy and often from outright injustice.
Eric Schneiderman
Sometimes great injustices may be inflicted on the minority when the majority is in the pursuit of a great and just cause.
Paul Robeson
For more than two centuries our foreparents labored here without wages; they made cotton king; and they built the homes of their masters in the midst of brutal injustice and shameful humiliation – and yet out of a bottomless vitality our people continue to thrive and develop.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Violence does even justice unjustly.
Thomas Carlyle
The answer to injustice is not to silence the critic but to end the injustice.
Paul Robeson
toleration of exploitation, oppression, and injustice points to a condition lying like a pall over the whole of society; it is apathy, an unconcern that is incapable of suffering.
Dorothee Solle
That is the hope that inspires Christians. We know that every effort to better society, especially when injustice and sin are so ingrained, is an effort that God blesses, that God wants, that God demands of us.
Oscar Romero
It is better for you to suffer an injustice than for the world to be without law. Therefore, let everyone submit to the law.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
In the beginning there was only a small amount of injustice abroad in the world, but everyone who came afterwards added their portion, always thinking it was very small and unimportant, and look where we have ended up today.
Paulo Coelho
If everyone howled at every injustice, every act of barbarism, every act of unkindness, then we would be taking the first step towards a real humanity.
Nelson DeMille
Injustice drives me crazy! It really upsets me when I see politicians lying.
Trevor Paglen
But human beings are not machines, and however powerful the pressure to conform, they sometimes are so moved by what they see as injustice that they dare to declare their independence. In that historical possibility lies hope.
Howard Zinn
Even if you assume that the whole economy would work better had we never had double taxation, having the envy and resentment of the richest paying low or no taxes screams of injustice. You have to have a fair system.
Charlie Munger
When the heart is touched by direct experience, the mind may be challenged to change. Personal involvement with innocent suffering, with the injustice others suffer, is the catalyst for solidarity which then gives rise to intellectual inquiry and moral reflection.
Peter Hans Kolvenbach
There can be no beauty if it is paid for by human injustice, nor truth that passes over injustice in silence, nor moral virtue that condones it.
Tadeusz Borowski
It seems to me that rumors and dreams of justice are part of a dialectic of injustice and dreams of justice will be with us for as long as there’s injustice, and that doesn’t seem to be in short supply.
James C. Scott
Acceptance does not mean that you placidly acquiesce to the myriad injustices that are all around you. In fact, that you are incensed about these injustices is the very reason you need to try your level best to ‘right’ these ‘wrongs.’
Srikumar Rao
I was just as anxious to prevent injustice as to cause justice.
Muriel Spark
My first spoken word poem, packed with all the wisdom of a 14-year-old, was about the injustice of being seen as unfeminine. The poem was very indignant, and mainly exaggerated, but the only spoken word poetry that I had seen up until that point was mainly indignant, so I thought that that’s what was expected of me.
Sarah Kay
I mean we just simply can’t stand for the systemic racism, social injustice and police brutality against the black community anymore. And it’s really about standing up for what’s right versus what’s wrong.
Erik Spoelstra
Since most people only pay lip service to the injustices of the world, because one cannot affect the outcome of an atrocity like the Darfur genocide, veganism is your only chance to stand up for what’s right several times a day, every day, for the rest of your life!
Gary Yourofsky
When you believe in something, fight for it. And when you see injustice, fight harder than you’ve ever fought before.
Brad Meltzer
Some people are able to use Bible as a means of opposing injustice, whereas others are able to find justification.
Desmond Tutu
If any of you happens to see an injustice, you are no longer a spectator, you are a participant, and you have an obligation to do something.
June Callwood
I am the result of a loving upbringing in a peaceful country, with wonderful parents and siblings, a very long-term relationship, stability, support – but a feeling that life isn’t always just and that there is injustice for people and we should do something about it.
Michael Kirby
Justice and injustice indeed begins and ends with the self.
Syed Muhammad Naquib al-Attas
My hope was that organizations would start including this range of skills in their training programs – in other words, offer an adult education in social and emotional intelligence.
Daniel Goleman
It is a great injustice to persecute homosexuality as a crime, and cruelty too
Sigmund Freud
I think justice is important because there are many injustices in the world and I hate injustice.
Michael Jackson
As prime minister, I will never make a decision that will be an injustice to Serbia and its citizens.
Ivica Dacic
There is no excuse for inaction in the face of economic injustice.
Jagmeet Singh
People who fear disorder more than injustice will only produce more of both.
William Sloane Coffin
I loathe your ideals because I know no worse injustice than the giving of the undeserved.
Ayn Rand
Above all, try always to be able to feel deeply any injustice committed against any person in any part of the world. It is the most beautiful quality of a revolutionary.
Che Guevara
Wealth and vegetation go together, and that exacerbates environmental injustice. The poor bear the burden of degraded environments.
Natalie Jeremijenko
I’m not violent, I don’t believe in killing people, but standing up for yourself, speaking out against injustice, is another form of vengeance.
Eva Gabrielsson
Fascism was born to inspire a faith not of the Right (which at bottom aspires to conserve everything, even injustice) or of the Left (which at bottom aspires to destroy everything, even goodness), but a collective, integral, national faith.
Jose Antonio Primo de Rivera
No novel has ever changed anything, as far as I can see. And the great satirists, like Swift and Dickens, tend to write about abuses and injustices that have already been partially corrected – you write about it after it’s over.
Martin Amis
A book might be written on the injustice of the just.
Pauline Kael
It is an understatement to say that in this society injustices abound: in truth, it is itself the quintessence of injustice.
Emile M. Cioran
Above these universal themes ‘Truth Will Set U Free’ is also a song composed for those who were born gay. I am a straight man so I do not profess to understand or know what a LGBT person experiences but I do recognize injustice when I see it.
Corey Hart
The whole track of history is marked with the ruin of empires which having been founded in injustice, or perpetuated by wrong, were ultimately destroyed.
William Mackergo Taylor
It is justice and respect that I want the world to dust off and put – without delay, and with tenderness – back on the head of the Palestinian child. It will be imperfect justice and respect because the injustice and disrespect have been so severe. But I believe we are right to try.
Alice Walker
Did the mass of men know the actual selfishness and injustice of their rulers, not a government would stand a year. – The world would foment with revolution.

I always emphasize that in the long run one can’t satisfactorily say no to war, violence and injustice unless one is simultaneously saying yes to life and love and laughter.
David Dellinger
Injustice makes the rules, and courage breaks them.
Ursula K. Le Guin
Justice is the sanction of established injustice.
Anatole France
… while one-half of the people of the United States are robbed of their inherent right of personal representation in this freestcountry on the face of the globe, it is idle for us to expect that the men who thus rob women will not rob each other as individuals, corporations and Government.
Susan B. Anthony
The great battleground for the defense and expansion of freedom today is the whole southern half of the globe… the lands of the rising peoples. Their revolution is the greatest in human history. They seek an end to injustice, tyranny and exploitation. More than an end, they seek a beginning.
John F. Kennedy
If thou wouldst be justified, acknowledge thine injustice. He that confesses his sin, begins his journey toward salvation. He that is sorry for it, mends his pace. He that forsakes it, is at his journey’s end.
Francis Quarles
Wherever injustice occurs, we all need to be concerned.
Millicent Fenwick
Man is unjust, but God is just; and finally justice triumphs.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Someone did us all a grave injustice by implying that mourning has a distinct beginning, middle, and end.
Hope Edelman
The professional conducts his business in the real world. Adversity, injustice, bad hops and rotten calls, even good breaks and lucky bounces all comprise the ground over which the campaign must be waged. The field is level, the professional understands, only in heaven.
Steven Pressfield
The only living socities are those which are animated by inequality and injustice.
Paul Claudel
…when we are comfortable and inattentive, we run the risk of committing grave injustices absentmindedly.

Amy Schumer
I think there are worse things than war. For example, injustice.
George Friedman
Men use thought only to justify their wrong doings, and employ speech only to conceal their thoughts.
I very much admire Sheryl Sandberg for what she has done. I really do. But Sandberg’s narrative also implies: “Well, it’s your fault if you couldn’t make it.” There is a certain injustice in that.
Anne-Marie Slaughter
I believe that the racial injustice which existed such a short time ago probably would have persisted longer if the color barrier had not been broken in baseball.
Harrison Ford
Mankind’s survival is dependent on man’s ability to solve the problems of racial injustice, poverty, and war; the solution of these problems is in turn dependent upon man’s squaring his moral progress with his scientific progress, and learning the practical art of living in harmony.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Do you see law and order? There is nothing but disorder, and instead of law there is the illusion of security. It is an illusion because it is built on a long history of injustices: racism, criminality, and the genocide of millions. Many people say it is insane to resist the system, but actually, it is insane not to.
Mumia Abu-Jamal
It is a sad fact that because of comfort, complacency, a morbid fear of communism, and our proneness to adjust to injustice, the Western nations that initiated so much of the revolutionary spirit of the modern world have now become the arch-antirevolutionaries.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
In a world of injustice there’s going to be dreams of justice.
James C. Scott
My Scottish Labour Party is a crusade – to fight poverty, inequality and injustice.
Johann Lamont
You mean ‘Injustice Sunday II’, … is using religion to alienate people rather than to bring people together. It has more to do with politics than with theology. I’m disappointed that clergy would be leading such a divisive call.
Tim McDonald
While I am furious about injustice, I do what I do, fighting against it, out of a place of love.
Shaun King
There can be racism in a system even if a particular episode of injustice is not a manifestation of that racism. Every single thing in the criminal justice system is not a manifestation of racism, but many things are.
James Forman, Jr.
I felt that one had better die fighting against injustice than to die like a dog or rat in a trap. I had already determined to sell my life as dearly as possible if attacked. I felt if I could take one lyncher with me, this would even up the score a little bit.
Ida B. Wells
If you’re aware of injustice, you can either ignore it, say there is nothing you can do about it, complain about it and not do anything, or put your energies into doing something about it.
Ben Cohen
If it is nothingness that awaits us, let us make an injustice of it, let us fight against destiny, even without hope of victory.
Miguel de Unamuno
A creature undefiled by the taint of the world, unvexed by its injustice, unwearied by its hollow pleasures; a being fresh from the source of light, with something of its universal lustre in it. If childhood be this, how holy the duty to see that in its onward growth it shall be no other!
Douglas William Jerrold
India has sanctioned phenomenal injustices for years and years and years. And normalized it. There is no understanding of what it means to be born into a class that has been denied basic human dignity for generations and generations.
Sarnath Banerjee
If there are gods, why is the world so full of pain and injustice?’ ‘Because of men like you.
George R. R. Martin
Terrorism is based on two major pillars: One is injustice, and the other is a certainty of attitude, the notion that their version of the story is the correct one.
Shirin Ebadi
My sense of injustice about our family’s ‘weirdness’ in not owning a car was amplified by the fact that we did not own a television, either – my parents were unapologetic about this and told me very cheerfully that I would thank them for it when I was older, which was quite true.
Eleanor Catton
I am filled with fear and tormented with terrible visions of pain. Everywhere people are hurting one another, the planet is rampant with injustices, whole societies plunder groups of their own people, mothers imprison sons, children perish while brothers war. O, woe.
Robert Anton Wilson
Most of the verses written about praise in God’s Word were voiced by people who were faced with crushing heartaches, injustice, treachery, slander, and scores of other difficult situations.
Joni Eareckson Tada
Non-violence confronts systematic injustice with active love, but refuses to retaliate with further violence under any circumstances. In order to halt the vicious cycles of violence, it requires a willing acceptance of suffering and death rather than inflicting suffering or death on anyone else.
John Dear
If you tremble with indignation at every injustice, then you are a comrade of mine.
Che Guevara
It is so important for people to speak out if they see any injustices.
Leigh-Anne Pinnock
It is indeed a singular thing that people wish to pass laws to nullify the disagreeable consequences that the law of responsibility entails. Will they never realize that they do not eliminate these consequences but merely pass them along to other people? The result is one injustice the more and one moral the less.
Frederic Bastiat
Cruelty to animals is an enormous injustice; so is expecting those on the lowest rung of the economic ladder to do the dangerous, soul-numbing work of slaughtering sentient beings on our behalf.
Victoria Moran
The only thing worse than suffering an injustice is committing an injustice.
The world has no long injustices.
Marie de Rabutin-Chantal, marquise de Sevigne
In so many ways, forces unleashed in response to the Movement have come to dominate our politics, and technology is allowing the same injustices to be seen anew.
Andrew Aydin
Nakedness, hunger, distress of all kinds, death itself have been cheerfully suffered, when the heart was right. It is the feeling of injustice that is insupportable to all men.
Thomas Carlyle
Some things you must always be unable to bear. Some things you must never stop refusing to bear. Injustice and outrage and dishonor and shame. No matter how young you are or how old you have got. Not for kudos and not for cash: your picture in the paper nor money in the back either. Just refuse to bear them.
William Faulkner
I consider myself an aware person who is sensitive to injustice.
Dacia Maraini
When we look at a conflict, it is so often rooted in injustice, prejudice, competition for resources, poverty, poor governance and corruption.

Matt Hancock
Peace does not mean just to stop wars, but also to stop oppression and injustice.
Tawakkol Karman
Life appears to me too short to be spent in nursing animosity, or registering wrongs. With this creed, revenge never worries my heart, degradation never too deeply disgusts me, injustice never crushes me too low. I live in calm, looking to the end.
Charlotte Bronte
Law and order is one of the steps taken to maintain injustice.
Edward Bond
Justice makes the life of such as are in prosperity, power and authority the life of a god, and injustice turns it to that of a beast.
The profound immoralities of our time are cruelty, indifference, injustice and the use of others as means rather than ends in themselves.
Sydney J. Harris
In schools of theology Negroes are taught the interpretation of the Bible worked out by those who have justified segregation and winked at the economic debasement of the Negro at times almost to the point of starvation.
Carter G. Woodson
Europeans say they are proud of their social fabric, of strong rights for workers and the weak in society.
David Korten
To refrain from all injustice renders us also humane.
I understand the outrage because it seems the list continues to grow: Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, George Floyd. The injustices continue to mount and nothing seems to be changing.
Dwane Casey
An activist is someone who cannot help but fight for something. That person is not usually motivated by a need for power or money or fame, but in fact is driven slightly mad by some injustice, some cruelty, some unfairness, so much so that he or she is compelled by some internal moral engine to act to make it better.
Eve Ensler
Making a judgment, taking a stand and then acting against an injustice or acting to support excellence is the stuff of the everyman hero.В If you are an aspiring artist and you wish to avoid “judgments,” you’ll find that you have nothing to say.
Steven Pressfield
If I see any injustice done, I have a big enough mouth and the position to open up about it.
Michael Caine
I think it’s a complete injustice, the way it’s (the trial) being done

My activism did not spring from being black…The racial injustice that was present in this country during my youth was a challenge to my belief in the oneness of the human family.
Bayard Rustin
As a youngster and being a Latina, you see so much injustice.
Dolores Huerta
When I write a story, I try to write them from the perspective of victims. I try to write them from the perspective of families who’ve been done wrong, who have lost their loved ones or people who have experienced injustice.
Shaun King
A writer without a sense of justice or injustice would be better off editing the yearbook for a school for exceptional children.
Ernest Hemingway
A nation of slaves is always prepared to applaud the clemency of their master who, in the abuse of absolute power, does not proceed to the last extremes of injustice and oppression.
Edward Gibbon
We must not permit our respect for the dead or our sympathy for the living to lead us into an act of injustice to the balance of the living.
Davy Crockett
On Good Friday Jesus died But rose again at Eastertide…..Lord, teach us to understand that your Son died to save us not from suffering but from ourselves, not from injustice…but from being unjust. He died that we might live – but live as he lives, by dying as he died who died to himself.
George MacDonald
Doesn’t the world see the suffering of millions of Palestinians who have been living in exile around the world or in refugee camps for the past 60 years? No state, no home, no identity, no right to work. Doesn’t the world see this injustice?
Ismail Haniyeh
No man could be actively nonviolent and not rise against social injustice, no matter where it occurred.
Mahatma Gandhi
It is better to suffer an injustice than to commit one
Do not let your heart become troubled by the sad spectacle of human injustice. Even this has its value in the face of all else. And it is from this that one day you will see the justice of God rising with unfailing triumph.
Pio of Pietrelcina
The scientific approach uncovers, that Communism does not eliminate the inequality between men, the social injustice, exploitation of man by man and other evils of society – communism merely changes their form and gives birth to new evils, which become eternal fellow-travelers of communism.
Alexander Zinoviev
tyranny and injustice always produce cunning and falsehood.
Maria Edgeworth
You have to call out injustice and not let tribalism win over.
Paul Walter Hauser
Government is nothing but the regulated injustice that every rascal has in his heart.
Mariano Azuela
Progress is always relative: to the oppressed, it can only be viewed as an all or nothing deal – if oppression continues, even in a modified form, then the system must still be attacked until that injustice is eradicated.
Tim Wise
This is an industry rife with racism, sexism and homophobia. It is so closely woven into the fabric of the business that we have become snowblind to the glaring injustices happening every day.
Jessica Chastain
While there’s capitalism, there’ll be socialism, because there is always a response to injustice.
Ed Miliband
No man suffers injustice without learning,
vaguely but surely, what justice is.
Isaac Rosenfeld
The American myth is of free will in its simple, primary sense. One can choose oneself and will oneself; and this absurdly optimistic assumption so dominates the republic that it has bred all its gross social injustices.
John Fowles
When athletes take a knee during the National Anthem, we must ignore President Trump’s absurd claim that they’re ‘un-American’ and instead understand that it’s very American to peacefully protest systemic injustice.
Eric Swalwell
These decrees of yours are no different from spiders’ webs. They’ll restrain anyone weak and insignificant who gets caught in them, but they’ll be torn to shreds by people with power and wealth.
Victims of oppression & injustice don’t need our spasm of passion….they need our legs & lungs of endurance.
Gary Haugen
Something big is going on. I’m talking about a society that refuses to allow injustice just to persist without making our voices heard and without organizing to bring about effective change through our voting system.
Bernice King
In that first blow to the deaf walls of those who have everything, the blood of our people, our blood, ran generously to wash away injustice. To live, we die. Our dead once again walked the way of truth. Our hope was fertilized with mud and blood.
Subcomandante Marcos
To read was precisely to enter another world, which was not the reader’s own, and come back refreshed, ready to bear with equanimity the injustices and frustrations of this one. Reading was balm, amusement not incitement.
Susan Sontag
In countries with a properly functioning legal system, the mob continues to exist, but it is rarely called upon to mete out capital punishment. The right to take human life belongs to the state. Not so in societies where weak courts and poor law enforcement are combined with intractable structural injustices.
Teju Cole
We are convinced that liberty without socialism is privilege, injustice; and that socialism without liberty is slavery and brutality.
Mikhail Bakunin
For years, media moguls and campaigns bankrolled by the rich have fed the lie that migrants are the cause of injustices propagated by the powerful: the failure to build housing, the strain on public services by cuts, the lack of secure jobs, the decline in real wages.
Owen Jones
Just as you’re allowed to be angry about injustice, it’s natural to express feelings of sadness or fear, especially if you’re exhausted by the prospect of trying to keep a brave face.
Franchesca Ramsey
For me, any fiction of nobles and swords necessarily has to be a story of corruption, injustice and savagely violent conflict – because any other treatment is going to have all the heft and realistic honesty of a bedtime fairy tale for five year olds.
Richard K. Morgan
When you pollute a river, it’s a supreme injustice to those who are downstream and those who live in the river who are not human beings.
Paul Hawken
I must be willing to give whatever it takes to do good to others. This requires that I be willing to give until it hurts. Otherwise, there is no true love in me, and I bring injustice, not peace, to those around me.
Mother Teresa
For most men the love of justice is only the fear of suffering injustice.
Francois de La Rochefoucauld
I teach young people how the arts can be used to stand up against injustice.
Renee Watson
Injustice boils in men’s hearts as does steel in its cauldron, ready to pour forth, white hot, in the fullness of time.
Mary Harris Jones
People complain of the unequal distribution of wealth [but it is a far greater] injustice that any one man should have the power to write so many brilliant essays… There is no one who writes like [Thomas Huxley].
Charles Darwin
We study the injustices of history for the same reason that we study genocide, and for the same reason that psychologists study the minds of murderers and rapists… to understand how those evil things came about.
Jared Diamond
she never showed girly weaknesses like cellulite or crushes. she never lingered on injustices committed against her.

Curt Flood
The people’s awe and innate fear will hold injustice back by day, by night, so long as the people leave the laws intact, just as they are: muddy the cleanest spring, and all you’ll have to drink is muddy water.
You had workers’ movements. You had left organizations, the Communist Party, that were mobilizing in profoundly powerful ways to basically address the great injustices of capitalism.
Henry Giroux
Civic poetry is public poetry. It is political poetry. It is about the hard stuff of life: money, crime, gender, corporate excess, racial injustice. It gives expression not just to our rites but also to our problems and even our values; these poems are not about rustic vacations.
Alissa Quart
I seek … the means to fight injustice. To turn fear against those who prey on the fearful.
Christian Bale
Those who commit injustice bear the greatest burden.
Hosea Ballou
It’s very important to be just to other people. It takes years and years of living to learn that injustice against oneself is always unimportant.
Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings
Very important thing to keep in mind, that when justice comes and when injustices are remedied, they’re not remedied by the initiative of the national government or the politicians. They only respond to the power of social movements.
Howard Zinn
To go to the world below, having a soul which is like a vessel full of injustice, is the last and worst of all the evils.
I guess for me the greatest injustice is to see people robbed of that interiority and process of association.
Hank Azaria
The true conservative is the man who has a real concern for injustices and takes thought against the day of reckoning.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
Leave all human injustices to the Lord, for God is the Judge, but as to yourself, be diligent in loving everybody with a pure heart.
John of Kronstadt
I submit that an individual who breaks a law that conscience tells him is unjust, and who willingly accepts the penalty of imprisonment in order to arouse the conscience of the community over its injustice, is in reality expressing the highest respect for law.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Earthly providence is a travesty of justice on any other theory than that it is a preliminary stage, which is to be followed by rectifications. Either there must be a future, or consummate injustice sits upon the throne of the universe. This is the verdict of humanity in all the ages.
Randolph Sinks Foster
[E]very human life is a reflection of divinity, and… every act of injustice mars and defaces the image of God in man.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

Experience has shown how deeply the seeds of war are planted by economic rivalry and social injustice.
Harry S Truman
So you would rather suffer an injustice than do an injustice?
Now, and in the future, my focus is entirely on pets and children. I’m not a person who can turn a blind eye to injustice against them.
Lori Foster
I don’t believe in the death penalty. I believe that there are other people as we speak right now in prison, wrongfully accused, who could serve such a fate. That is injustice at its greatest.
Hilary Swank
Unless physicians stand together to fight threats and injustices, our practices cannot remain viable in the future.
Samuel Wilson
How much more of an injustice is it that people who work get more money than people who don’t work?
Thomas Sowell
A s laws multiply, injustice increases.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
Yes, disappointment over perceived unfairness, injustice, promises not kept, tends to go hand in hand with increasing prosperity. Expectations are dashed. What can I say!
Mary Douglas
Progress is the injustice each generation commits with regard to its predecessors.
Emil Cioran
Of all things I find most unbearable is the injustice of one generation to another.
Joyce Cary
As a product of history and faith, Jewish Americans have helped to open our eyes to injustice, to people in need, and to the simple idea that we ought to recognize ourselves in the struggle of our fellow men and women.
Barack Obama
As for ourselves, yes, we must be meek, bear injustice, malice, rash judgment. We must turn the other cheek, give up our cloak, go a second mile.
Dorothy Day
To call woman the weaker sex is a libel; it is man’s injustice to woman.
Mahatma Gandhi
To put up a show is to face life’s injustices with one of the few weapons available to a desperate and brave people, their imagination.
Luigi Barzini
We are all frail-embodied creatures, who at times suffer through injustice, abuse, illness, pain and misfortune.
Bryant H. McGill
There is no social evil, no form of injustice whether of the feudal or the capitalist order which has not been sanctified in some way or other by religious sentiment and thereby rendered more impervious to change.
Reinhold Niebuhr
I believe that those who believe in the power of human rights must find new ways to address economic injustice – and on a scale commensurate with the millions of people around the world that are mired in poverty.
Pamela Yates
calls for equal treatment are often seen as calls for ‘special treatment’ in situations where discrimination has become the norm.
Anita Hill
The American public has difficulty believing … [that] injustice continues to be inflicted upon Indian people because Americans assume that the sympathy and tolerance they feel toward Indians is somehow ‘felt’ or transferred to the government policy that deals with Indians. This is not the case.
Leslie Marmon Silko
Can injustice one way be corrected without the interim reaction that tries to impose injustice the other way?
William Stafford
We are the hands, feet and mouthpiece of Christ. We are His ambassadors on Earth, called to stop injustice and restore His people.
James Augustus St. John

S.E. Cupp
Injustice anywhere is an assault on all of us. That means that we all can get busy.
Bill Ayers
What did our nation ever do to provoke these madly vicious enemies? What is seen as injustice in one place is seen as just requital in the other.
Mary Douglas
I just want to thank people who take big risks in their daily lives when there aren’t cameras rolling. I want to dedicate this award to people who stand up for peace and against injustice and intolerance.
Paul Haggis
If you care about injustice, and if you care about freedom, and you care about human rights, then you care about them everywhere.
Lara Logan
Law and freedom must be indivisible partners. For without law, there can be no freedom, only choas and disorder; and without freedom, law is but a cynical veneer for injustice and oppression.
Ronald Reagan
A free and open Internet is crucial for innovation and the exchange of information and ideas. It allows grassroots communities to organize and mobilize against injustice across our nation and the globe. It’s good for business, consumers, and our entire economy.
Deb Haaland
Above these universal themes Truth Will Set U Free is also a song composed for those who were born gay. I am a straight man so I do not profess to understand or know what a LGBT person experiences but I do recognize injustice when I see it.
Corey Hart
To call woman the weaker sex is a libel; it is man’s injustice to woman. If by strength is meant brute strength, then, indeed, is woman less brute than man. If by strength is meant moral power, then woman is immeasurably man’s superior.
Mahatma Gandhi
To delay is injustice.
Jean de la Bruyere
It was in the sugar hacienda in Negros, Panay and in Central Luzon where I saw the injustices heaped upon the sugar workers, particularly the sacadas, or seasonal workers.

There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest.
Elie Wiesel
If you have the capacity to tremble with indignation every time that an injustice is committed in the world, then we are comrades.
