Quote from Rufus Choate 

"Appropriated to justice, to security, to reason, to restraint;
where there is no respect of persons;
where will is nothing and power is nothing and numbers are nothing,
and all are equal and all secure before the law."

Quote by:
Rufus Choate
(1799-1859) American lawyer, orator
in his speech before the Constitutional Convention in Massachusetts in 1853, presented to those who were crying for unrestrained and unlimited power of the people as the final bulwark of law and justice, guaranteed by our constitution to every citizen. Ref: Annals of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, Volume 43, by American Academy of Political and Social Science, National American Woman Suffrage Association Collection (Library of Congress) 1912
