Do not hesitate to alter existing laws if you can improve upon them. Laws should be consistent and immediate in their action. Make lawsuits costly and industries profitable. Your judgements should be given with care, for they will pass into law. Manage your state as you would your private property; be munificent yet economical, show your magnificence not in extravagant display but in purchasing possessions which are beautiful and lasting.
