Quote from Justice Robert H. Jackson,

"The choice is not between order and liberty. It is between liberty with order and anarchy without either. There is danger that, if the court does not temper its doctrinaire logic with a little practical wisdom, it will convert the constitutional Bill of Rights into a suicide pact."


Justice Robert H. Jackson (more quotes by Justice Robert H. Jackson or books by/about Justice Robert H. Jackson)

(1892-1954), U. S. Supreme Court Justice
