Quote of the Day

Those who won our independence
believed that the final end of the State
was to make men free to develop their faculties…
They valued liberty both as an end and as a means.
They believed liberty to be the secret of happiness
and courage to be the secret of liberty.

— Justice Louis D. Brandeis

and of being as comports with order and the rights of others,
