Quote from Georges Bernanos,

"Justice in the hands of the powerful is merely a governing system like any other.
Why call it justice? Let us rather call it injustice, but of a sly effective order,
based entirely on cruel knowledge of the resistance of the weak,
their capacity for pain, humiliation and misery."


Georges Bernanos (more quotes by Georges Bernanos or books by/about Georges Bernanos)

(1888-1948) French author
