“Laws can go only so far, and at the crucial moment they fail us. They are a poor substitute for justice.” —Cleopatra

“O Roman law! If ever I saw the murderers of my children, I would forget all about the law, except the eternal one of vengeance for a dead child--the prerogative of a mother. Laws can go only so far, and at the crucial moment they fail us. They are a poor substitute for justice. The Greek gods know more about that than the Roman law.” —Cleopatra, from “The Memoirs of Cleopatra” by Margaret George, 1997
