Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance - Barrack Obama; 1995

This quote was added by user74087
The study of law can be disappointing at times, a matter of applying narrow rules and arcane procedure to uncooperative reality; a sort of glorified accounting that serves to regulate the affairs of those who have power - and that all too often seeks to explain, to those who do not, the ultimate wisdom and justness of their condition. But that's not all the law is. The law is also memory; the law also records a long running conversation, a nation arguing with its conscience.
