Once again, the biblical resonance is plain: laws have to do with the ninety-nine, but justice has to do with the one lost sheep, with the one lost coin, with the widow, the orphan, and the stranger. Every time we feel unjustly treated by the law we say, “But this case is different.” A body of laws precise enough to cover everything singular, a perfect set of laws, would be like a map that is so exact that it is the same size as the region of which it is the map. A perfect map, a perfect set of laws, would be perfectly useless, a nightmare.
