The law is not an ass

Forgive me for being pedantic the law is not an ass.
“If the law supposes that,” said Mr. Bumble,… “the law is a ass—a idiot. If that’s the eye of the law, the law is a bachelor; and the worst I wish the law is that his eye may be opened by experience—by experience.”
CHARLES DICKENS, Oliver Twist, chapter 51.
I remember it because I lost marks in a school essay, because I misquoted the remark.

I have probably made some embarrassing punctuation errors, in which case I apologise both for any errors, and for being frivolous.

I particularly liked:
Wise men talk because they have something to say; fools, because they would like to say something.

I wonder, does that make me wise or a fool?
