From the Contracts book:

 “The Discretion Of A Judge Is The Law Of Tyrants; It Is Always Unknown; It Is Different In Different Men; It Is Casual And Depends Upon Constitution, Temper, And Passion. In The Best It Is Oftentimes Caprice; In The Worst It Is Every Vice, Folly And Passion To Which Human Nature Is Liable.”

The quote is attributed to one Lord Camden, who was apparently a great English judge. (If you want to know why Lord Camden is so important as to be quoted in the Contracts book, you're going to have to read that treatise yourself. I have to study for exams.)
