"Men, to act with vigour and effect, must have time to mature measures, and judgment and experience, as to the best method of applying them. They must not be hurried on to their conclusions by the passions, or the fears of the multitude. They must deliberate, as well as resolve."

Reader comments about this quote:
Accurate enough on its face when considered in a furtherance of individual sovereignty, inalienable rights and liberty at natural law. BUTT ! ! !  Active courts of men and women, acting with vigour and effect (in their time tested mature measures, judgments and experience) - not hurried on conclusions by fears of the multitude, have deliberated legislation from the bench creating and enforcing tyranny, despotism and enslavement of the whole.
