Quote from Justice Charles Evans Hughes 

"Our institutions were not devised to bring about uniformity of opinion;
if they had we might well abandon hope. It is important to remember,
as has well been said, 'the essential characteristic of true liberty
is that under its shelter many different types of life and character
and opinion and belief can develop unmolested and unobstructed.'"
