Quote from William O. Douglas 

"The First and Fourteenth Amendments say that Congress and the States
shall make "no law" which abridges freedom of speech or of the press.
In order to sanction a system of censorship I would have to say that
"no law" does not mean what it says, that "no law" is qualified to mean
"some" laws. I cannot take this step."
