label.lineBreakMode = NSLineBreakMode.ByWordWrapping

// Justify text through paragraph style
let paragraphStyle = NSMutableParagraphStyle()
paragraphStyle.alignment = NSTextAlignment.Justified

let attributedString = NSAttributedString(string: sampleText, attributes: attributes)
label.attributedText = attributedString
view.addSubview(label)
