"If there is any principle
of the Constitution
that more imperatively calls
for attachment than any other
it is the principle of free thought --
not free thought for those
who agree with us
but freedom for the thought
that we hate."
by:
Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
(1841-1935) US Supreme Court Justice, also known as "The Great Dissenter"
Source:
United States v. Schwimmer,
1928
