Quote from Justice Charles Evans Hughes,

"Our institutions were not devised
to bring about uniformity of opinion;
if they had we might well abandon hope.
It is important to remember, as has well been said,
'the essential characteristic of true liberty is that under its shelter
many different types of life and character and opinion and belief
can develop unmolested and unobstructed.'"
