but it tends toward justice.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
when love holds it:
it stops working.
"I do not pretend to understand the moral universe;
the arc is a long one, my eye reaches but little ways;
I cannot calculate the curve and complete the figure
by the experience of sight; I can divine it by conscience.
And from what I see I am sure it bends towards justice."
PS. If only justice were as plentiful as beauty:
FAIR AND UNFAIR
The beautiful is fair. The just is fair.
Yet one is commonplace and one is rare,
One everywhere, one scarcely anywhere.
So fair unfair a world. Had we the wit
To use the surplus for the deficit,
We'd make a fairer fairer world of it.
Robert Francis, 1901 - 1987
