request help in tracking a reference

does anyone recognise this quotation of Foucault? I cannot for the life
of me remember where its from, and I lost the exact reference in a mountain
of papers. Any help _much_ appreciated.

"It seems to me that the idea of justice in itself is an idea which in
effect has been invented and put to work in different types of societies as
an instrument of a certain political and economic power or as a weapon
against that power .. One can't .. put these notions forward to justify a
fight which should .. overthrow the very fundaments of our society." --
Michel Foucault

"Now I see the secret of the making of the best persons,
It is to grow in the open air and to eat and sleep
with the earth." - Walt Whitman
