Famous Quote from Andrew Johnson,

Outside of the Constitution
we have no legal authority
more than private citizens,
and within it we have
only so much
as that instrument gives us.
This broad principle
limits all our functions
and applies to all subjects.


Andrew Johnson (more quotes by Andrew Johnson or books by/about Andrew Johnson)

(1808-1875), 17th US President
