Kofi Annan

"We must put the great new global market within reach of the poor, so that they too can become producers and consumers."
(Poverty and the Law, 2002)
Bill Bradley

Justice William J. Brennan

"These are not the first pages of a legal journal in which I have defended the position that I first articulated in Furman v. Georgia. But they may well be the last. I have come to realize that I shall not likely live to see that 'great day for our country . . . [and] our Constitution' when a majority of the Supreme Court finally comes to accept the fact that the death penalty 'denies the humanity and dignity of the victim and transgresses the prohibition against cruel and unusual punishment.' But even if it is not for me, as it was not for Justice Marshall, to finish the work, neither are we free to desist. The final labor it seems, will be left to the brave and able hands and minds of those we leave behind."

President George W. Bush

"Our task is clear, and it is difficult; we must build our country's unity by extending our country's blessings."
(Poverty and the Law, 2002)
Mario Cuomo
John M. Finnis
Rudolph Giuliani

"Freedom from fear is a basic human right. We need to reassert our right to live free from fear with greater confidence and determination than ever before."
(Violence in America, 2002)
Kenneth Greenawalt

Prof. Douglas W. Kmiec
Founder, Notre Dame Journal of Law, Ethics & Public Policy

"At most, the law can create the minimum conditions necessary for civil order, and within that order, allow the proper agents-most notably, family and church-to instruct in matters of morality; to, if you will, teach virtue."
(Law and the Family, 1996, Vol. 10 p.647, 649, "A Reply to Drs. Carlson and Hitchcock: Still A Fool's Game-The Mistaken Pursuit of Family Virtue Through Politics & Law")

Judge John T. Noonan

"Law and morals are intermixed, for every legal position, every judgment of a court, every enactment of a legislature incorporates some position on the human good, that is, on what is moral."
(The Beginning and End of Life, 1998
Vol. 12 p. 387, "Dealing With Death")

John Cardinal O'Connor
Judge Richard A. Posner
Tommy Thompson

"To transform welfare is to restore hope, to honor work, to strengthen families, to reconstruct communities."
