Inspiring quotes on Virtue and justice by Miguel de Cervantes

Make virtue the medium of all your actions, and you will have no cause to envy those whose birth gives them the title of great men and princes; for nobility is inherited, but virtue acquired: and virtue is worth more in itself than nobleness of birth.
Miguel de Cervantes,Don Quixote

Do not revile with words those whom their crimes oblige you to punish. For the punishment is enough to the wretches, without the addition of ill language. In the trial of criminals, consider as much as you can without prejudice to the plaintiff, how defenseless and open the miserable are to the temptations of our corrupt and depraved nature, and to that extent show yourself full of pity and clemency.
Miguel de Cervantes,Don Quixote
