"The law organizes justice. It could not organize labor, education, and religion without destroying justice."
"Law is force ... and consequently, the proper functions of the law cannot lawfully extend beyond the proper functions of force."
"Law and force .... within the bounds of justice impose nothing but a mere negation. They oblige one only to abstain from harming others. They are defensive; they defend equally the rights of all."
--- Frederic Bastiat
