"No nation can be freer than it's most oppressed, richer than it's poorest, wiser than it's most ignorant."
- Henry George 1877

"Men's indignation, it seems, is more excited by legal wrong than by violent wrong; the first looks like being cheated by an equal, the second like being compelled by a superior."
- Thucydides

"In the state of nature...all men are born equal, but they cannot continue in this equality. Society makes them lose it, and they recover it only by the protection of the law."
- Charles de Montesquieu (1689 - 1755)

"No man suffers injustice without learning, vaguely but surely, what justice is."
- Isaac Rosenfeld (1918 -1956)
"It is emphatically the province and duty of the judicial department to say what the law is. Those who apply the rule to particular cases, must of necessity expound and interpret that rule. If two laws conflict with each other, the courts must decide on the operation of each."
- Chief Justice John Marshall, 1803
"Presidents come and go, but the Supreme Court goes on forever."
- William Howard Taft, c. 1910
"No higher duty, or more solemn responsibility rests upon this Court than that of translating into living law and maintaining this constitutional shield...for the benefit of every human being subject to our Constitution— of whatever race, creed, or persuasion."
- Hugo Black, 1940
"The words of the Constitution…. are so unrestricted by their intrinsic meaning or by their history or by tradition or by prior decisions that they leave the individual Justice free, if indeed they do not compel him, to gather meaning not from reading the Constitution but from reading life."
- Felix Frankfurter, 1949
"The life of the law has not been logic, it has been experience.… The law embodies the story of a nation's development through many centuries, and it cannot be dealt with as if it contained only the axioms and corollaries of a book of mathematics."
- Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr., 1880
"The judicial power of the United States shall be vested in one supreme court, and in such inferior courts as the congress may from time to time ordain and establish."
- Article III, Section 1, United States Constitution
