Proof, Belief, Truth and Justice

"Proof is that degree of validity arising from evidence which convinces the mind of any truth or fact and produces belief.  Belief is the result of evidence, and evidence is simply the medium of truth.  Truth enlightens those who seek and find it, yet controversy surrounds those who dare to speak it.  Justice, like truth, however, should not be prejudiced, and it will not be prejudiced, unless you are."

- Herbert Leon MacDonell
