If we are to keep democracy, there must be a commandment: Thou shalt not ration justice.
— Learned Hand

If we are to keep our democracy, there must be one commandment: "Thou shalt not ration justice."
Sophocles rations quote

When the mind has a tendency to dream, it is a mistake to keep dreams away from it, to ration its dreams. So long as you distract your mind from its dreams, it will not know them for what they are; you will always be being taken in by the appearance of things, because you will not have grasped their true nature. If a little dreaming is dangerous, the cure for it is not to dream less but to dream more, to dream all the time. One must have a thorough understanding of one
— Marcel Proust

The only freedom supposed to be left to the masses is that of grazing on the ration of simulacra the system distributes to each individual.
— Michel De Certeau

Jupiter, not wanting man's life to be wholly gloomy and grim, has bestowed far more passion than reason --you could reckon the ration as twenty-four to one. Moreover, he confined reason to a cramped corner of the head and left all the rest of the body to the passions.
— Desiderius Erasmus
