"Justice is not a thing less than the measure, but that which fills it to overflowing.

It exceeds the bounds of mortal requirements.

It endures everlastingly and is not denied one who is entombed.

It passes over with the spirit to bear witness.

It is the great brightener.
It is not a thing bought and sold.

Justice cannot be bartered."
"Be ever above price. One worthy of the greatness you reflect on Earth, one ever above mundane things.

Be not as the ferryman who demands payment before his task is fulfilled, who bears upon the water the man who makes payment and no other.
Be as the sun, whose brightness seeks out every nook and cranny and pours light into their hidden gloom.

Be one who shines among men to lighten their days.

Spread uprightness and honesty
across the two lands, as the sunshine spreads brightness and warmth.
Cover the land with goodness, as the rising waters cover it with fertility.

Fill the land with strength, as the northwind fills it with contentment."
"Guard Your heart, as a father guards his daughter, as a mother guards her baby, for it is the stronghold of integrity.

Be vigilant concerning every deed, for the eyes of men are ever upon you, the life you live is not yours alone.
You are the image, which men will imitate, and you are before every eye.

The blowing wind will open its ear at your windows and spread wide its report.

The flowing waters beside your door will uncover their eyes and carry what they behold through the land.
Your position makes you a supporting pillar of the government; if the pillars be rotten, the roof crashes.
Your responsibilities will beset your life with care; the road you journey is stony and encompassed with pitfalls and thorns.

The cup You drink will be more often bitter than sweet."
"Though you will judge all men impartially, do not, in your diligence, incline towards the poor and unprotected because they are such.

Your duty is to see that all things are done according to the statutes of the king, in the manner in which they have been done previously.
You are not wise enough to set aside the wisdom of the past.
Every man must be dealt with as though he stood before you naked and unknown.

Let he who is permitted entry into your courtyard be as he who is left standing outside the gate, and your decisions must be given with indifference, as to whether they serve him well or ill."
Such were the words uttered at the installation of an official empowered to give judgement.

In other days, such words were honoured and adhered to, now they are ignored.
Now justice lies buried in a tomb of past precedents, swathed in mummy bandages of formality.
It consists of the impartial, heartless administration of the recorded statutes, rather than the redress of injustice.
Where has the glory gone?
All is lifeless, all is dead.
The hands that guide are dead; the hands that rule are dead.
God bless you all.

Yet, the wisdom of our fathers did avail them, whatever is said in the streets today.
They have indeed left a memorial worthy of reverence, and they are not without shrines.
The wise words they spoke have not gone down to be eaten by dust, nor have they been carried away on the wings of the wind.

Co-application of fluorescent quantum dot nanocrystals and therapeutics has recently become a promising theranostic methodology for cancer treatment. We developed a tumor-targeted lipid nanocarrier that demonstrates notable efficacy in gene delivery as well as tumor bio-imaging.
Coupling of aptamer molecules against the EGF receptor (EGFR) to the distal termini of lipid nanoparticles provided the carrier with tumor-specific recognition capability.
