Quote from Raymond Chandler,

"The law isn't justice.
It's a very imperfect mechanism.
If you press exactly the right buttons and are also lucky,
justice may show up in the answer.
A mechanism is all the law was ever intended to be."


Raymond Chandler (more quotes by Raymond Chandler or books by/about Raymond Chandler)

(1888-1959) American writer of detective novels
