做人處世衡平法

種種法律中,我鍾情「衡平法」。

衡平法,the Law of Equity, 乃補足普通法的法律。

衡平法格言,the Maxims of Equity, 除了適用於執行衡平法,其中的一些,還適用於處世待人:

1)where there are equal equities the first in time prevails;
2)delays defeats equity;
3)he who seeks equity must do equity;
4)he who comes to equity must come with clean hands;
5)equity will not permit a statute to be used as a cloak for fraud;
6)equity does not suffer a wrong to be without a remedy;
7)equity looks to the substance and intent rather than to the form.
