Quote from my reading: Law

“The life of the law has not been logic; it has been experience. The felt necessities of the time, the prevalent moral and political theories, intuitions of public policy avowed or unconscious, even the prejudice which judges share with their fellow men, have had a good deal more to do than the syllogism in determining the rules by which men should be governed.”

Yankee from Olympus. Catherine Drinker Bowen, p. 256.
