Quote from Justice Louis D. Brandeis,

"Decency, security, and liberty alike demand that government officials shall be
subjected to the same rules of conduct that are commands to the citizen...
If the government becomes a lawbreaker, it breeds contempt for law;
it invites every man to become a law unto himself; it invites anarchy."


Justice Louis D. Brandeis (more quotes by Justice Louis D. Brandeis or books by/about Justice Louis D. Brandeis)
