equity is a certain perfect reasoning which interprets and amends the written law; not embraced in any writing, but consisting simply in true reason

The Latin form is aequitas est perfecta quaedam ratio quae jus scriptum interpretatur et emendat; nulla scriptura comprehensa, sed solum in vera ratione consistens.

Ballentine's law dictionary. . 1998.
