Famous Quote from Frederic Bastiat 

"There is in all of us a strong disposition
to believe that anything lawful is also legitimate.
This belief is so widespread that many persons have erroneously
held that things are 'just' because the law makes them so."

Quote by:
Frederic Bastiat
(1801-1850) French economist, statesman, and author. He did most of his writing during the years just before -- and immediately following -- the French Revolution of February 1848.
