Quote from Erwin N. Griswold,

The privilege against
self-incrimination is one of the
great landmarks in man's struggle
to make himself civilized. . . .
The Fifth is a lone sure rock
in time of storm . . .
a symbol of the ultimate
moral sense of the community,
upholding the best in us.
Former dean of Harvard Law School
