"Ars boni et aequi"

Maxim from the Roman jurist Ulpian (3rd century CE): 
Iustitia est constans et perpetua voluntas ius suum cuique tribuendi. Iuris praecepta sunt haec: honeste vivere, alterum non laedere, suum cuique tribuere.
(Digesto, 1.1.10)

My rough translation:
"Justice is the constant and perpetual will to give to each that which is one's rightful due. The rules of law are these: live honestly, do not do harm unto others; give to each one's due."
