Conformities are called for much more eagerly today than yesterday... skeptics, liberals, individuals with a taste for private life and their own inner standards of behavior, are objects of fear and derision and targets of persecution for either side... in the great ideological wars of our time.
more Isaiah Berlin quotes
If liberty is worth keeping and free representative government worth saving, we must stand for all American fundamentals—not some, but all. All are woven into the great fabric of our national well-being. We cannot hold fast to some only, and abandon others that, for the moment, we find inconvenient. If one American fundamental is prostrated, others in the end will surely fall.
more Albert J. Beveridge quotes
In each human heart are a tiger, a pig, an ass and a nightingale. Diversity of character is due to their unequal activity.
more Ambrose Bierce quotes
The public welfare demands that constitutional cases must be decided according to the terms of the Constitution itself, and not according to judges’ views of fairness, reasonableness, or justice. I have no fear of constitutional amendments properly adopted, but I do fear the rewriting of the Constitution by judges under the guise of interpretation.
more Justice Hugo L. Black quotes
Morality may consist solely in the courage of making a choice.
more Léon Blum quotes
Honor is like an island, rugged and without a beach; once we have left it, we can never return.
more Nicolas Boileau-Despraux quotes
Without an unfettered press, without liberty of speech, all of the outward forms and structures of free institutions are a sham, a pretense -- the sheerest mockery. If the press is not free; if speech is not independent and untrammeled; if the mind is shackled or made impotent through fear, it makes no difference under what form of government you live, you are a subject and not a citizen.
more William E. Borah quotes
To declare that in the administration of criminal law the end justifies the means – to declare that the Government may commit crimes in order to secure conviction of a private criminal – would bring terrible retribution.
more Justice Louis D. Brandeis quotes
At the foundation of our civil liberties lies the principle that denies to government officials an exceptional position before the law and which subjects them to the same rules of conduct that are commands to the citizen.
more Justice Louis D. Brandeis quotes
The Framers of the Bill of Rights did not purport to “create” rights. Rather they designed the Bill of Rights to prohibit our Government from infringing rights and liberties presumed to be preexisting.
more Justice William J. Brennan quotes
It is said that power corrupts, but actually it's more true that power attracts the corruptible. The sane are usually attracted by other things than power.
more David Brin quotes
The quixotic desire to do good, be universally fair and make everybody happy is understandable [...] There is only one problem with this approach. We are a court.
more Justice Janice Brown quotes
Neither fire nor wind, birth nor death can erase our good deeds.
more Buddha quotes
Tell me what are the prevailing sentiments that occupy the minds of your young peoples, and I will tell you what is to be the character of the next generation.
more Edmund Burke quotes
There never was a bad man that had ability for good service.
more Edmund Burke quotes
It is not what a lawyer tells me I may do; but what humanity, reason, and justice tell me I ought to do.
more Edmund Burke quotes
He that wrestles with us strengthens our nerves, and sharpens our skill. Our antagonist is our helper.
more Edmund Burke quotes
Society cannot exist, unless a controlling power upon will and appetite be placed somewhere; and the less of it there is within, the more there must be without. It is ordained in the eternal constitution of things, that men of intemperate minds cannot be free. Their passions forge their fetters.
more Edmund Burke quotes
He that complies against his will, Is of his own opinion still.
more Samuel Butler quotes
To maintain the ascendancy of the Constitution over the lawmaking majority is the great and essential point on which the success of the [American] system must depend; unless that ascendancy can be preserved, the necessary consequence must be that the laws will supersede the Constitution; and, finally, the will of the Executive, by influence of its patronage, will supersede the laws ...
more John C. Calhoun quotes
Stripped of all its covering, the naked question is, whether ours is a federal or consolidated government; a constitutional or absolute one; a government resting solidly on the basis of the sovereignty of the States, or on the unrestrained will of a majority; a form of government, as in all other unlimited ones, in which injustice, violence, and force must ultimately prevail.
more John C. Calhoun quotes
Today the grand jury is the total captive of the prosecutor who, if he is candid, will concede that he can indict anybody, at any time, for almost anything, before any grand jury.
more William J. Campbell quotes
How many crimes are permitted simply because their authors could not endure being wrong.
more Albert Camus quotes
Integrity has no need of rules.
more Albert Camus quotes
I'll tell you a big secret, my friend: Don't wait for the Last Judgment. It happens every day.
more Albert Camus quotes
You cannot become a truly effective advocate unless you know all sides of your subject thoroughly, opposing arguments as well as your own.
more G. R. Capp quotes
All honor's wounds are self-inflicted.
more Andrew Carnegie quotes
Every wrong seems possible today, and is accepted.  I don't accept it.
more Pablo Casals quotes
Ah yes, truth. Funny how everyone is always asking for it but when they get it they don't believe it because it's not the truth they want to hear.
more Helena Cassadine quotes
Each peso [or dollar] is a contract between the government and the peso holder. That contract guarantees that each peso -- as a unit of value that the holder has worked hard to get -- will be worth as much tomorrow as today. If the government breaks the contract, it's breaking the law. The only role of government in the economy should be to guarantee the integrity of market transactions.
more Domingo Cavallo quotes
As long as people will accept crap, it will be financially profitable to dispense it.
more Dick Cavett quotes
Once we start to worry too often and too deeply about what certain individuals and what certain groups think about us, then we might start selling our souls for the sake of expediency.
more Otis Chandler quotes
No more duty can be urged upon those who are entering the great theater of life than simple loyalty to their best convictions.
more Edwin Hubbel Chapin quotes
The peak of tolerance is most readily achieved by those who are not burdened by convictions.
more Alexander Chase quotes
Prefer a loss to a dishonest gain; for the one is painful but once, but the other for one's whole life.
more Chilon of Sparta quotes
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
more Chinese Proverb quotes
Laws control the lesser man. Right conduct controls the greater one.
more Chinese Proverb quotes
The Act of Congress which we are impugning before you is communistic in its purposes and tendencies, and is defended here upon principles as communistic, socialistic - what shall I call them - populistic as ever have been addressed to any political assembly in the world.
more Joseph H. Choate quotes
If for no other reason, personal pride should prompt every governor and state legislator to take a secessionist attitude; they were not elected to be lackeys of the federal bureaucracy.
more Frank Chodorov quotes
Of all the properties which belong to honorable men, not one is so highly prized as that of character.
more Henry Clay quotes
I would rather be right than President.
more Henry Clay quotes
When more of the people's sustenance is exacted through the form of taxation than is necessary to meet the just obligations of government, such exaction becomes ruthless extortion and a violation of the fundamental principles of a free government.
more Grover Cleveland quotes
We can't be so fixated on our desire to preserve the rights of ordinary Americans...
more Bill Clinton quotes
I have found some of the best reasons I ever had for remaining at the bottom simply by looking at the men at the top.
more Frank Moore Colby quotes
Our own heart, and not other men's opinions form our true honor.
more Samuel Taylor Coleridge quotes
If a man is not rising upwards to be an angel, depend upon it, he is sinking downwards to be a devil.
more Samuel Taylor Coleridge quotes
To know what is right and not do it is the worst cowardice.
more Confucius quotes
If language is not correct, then what is said is not what is meant; if what is said is not what is meant, then what must be done remains undone; if this remains undone, morals and art will deteriorate; if justice goes astray, the people will stand about in helpless confusion. Hence there must be no arbitrariness in what is said. This matters above everything.
more Confucius quotes
The superior man cannot be known in little matters, but he may be entrusted with great concerns. The small man may not be entrusted with great concerns, but he may be known in little matters.
more Confucius quotes
You can’t, in sound morals, condemn a man for taking care of his own integrity. It is his clear duty.
