Thomas Hobbes on law

“And law was brought into the world for nothing else but to limit the natural liberty of particular men in such manner as they might not hurt, but assist one another, and join together against a common enemy.”

  • Thomas Hobbes, Leviathan (Forgotten Books, 2008), at pp. 87, 147, 184
