One of the greatest delusions in the world is the hope that the evils in this world can be cured by legislation.

Thomas Brackett Reed

The more laws, the less justice.

Marcus Tullius Cicero

Roman Lawyer, Writer, Scholar, Orator, and Statesman

106 BC-43 BC

It will be of little avail to the people, that the laws are made by men of their own choice, if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood; if they be repealed or revised before they are promulgated, or undergo such incessant changes that no man, who knows what the law is today, can guess what it will be tomorrow.

James Madison, Feb. 27, 1788
