we have those three unspeakably precious things:
freedom of speech, freedom of conscience,
and the prudence never to practice either."

Reader comments about this quote:
On its face, not good - freedom of speech and conscience should not only be practiced but, expanded and protected. For humor, civility, and those most embarrassing moments, it is far to accurate, far to often.
