Stran 40 - To what purpose are powers limited and to what purpose is that limitation committed to writing, if these limits may at any time be passed by those intended to be restrained ? The distinction between a government with limited and unlimited powers is abolished if those limits do not confine the persons on whom they are imposed and if acts prohibited and acts allowed are of equal obligation.
Stran 40 - The Constitution is either a superior paramount law, unchangeable by ordinary means or it is on a level with ordinary legislative acts and, like other acts, is alterable when the legislature shall please to alter it. If the former part of the alternative be true, then a legislative act contrary to the Constitution is not law; if the latter part be true, then written constitutions are absurd attempts on the part of the people to limit a power, in its own nature, illimitable.
Stran 36 - The judiciary of the United States is the subtle corps of sappers and miners, constantly working underground to undermine the foundations of our confederated fabric.
Stran 41 - That a final judgment or decree in any suit, in the highest Court of law or equity of a State in which a decision in the suit could be had...

Stran 40 - If an act of the legislature repugnant to the Constitution is void, does it, notwithstanding its invalidity, bind the courts, and oblige them to give it effect?
Stran 100 - The Legislature by compelling him to part with his land to a railway company, whom he could not bind by any stipulation, as he could an assignee chosen by himself, has created a new kind of assign, such as was not in the contemplation of the parties when the contract was entered into.
Stran 43 - It is most true, that this Court will not take jurisdiction if it should not ; but it is equally true, that it must take jurisdiction, if it should.
Stran 41 - ... where is drawn in question the validity of a treaty or statute of, or an authority exercised under the United States, and the decision is against their validity ; or where is drawn in question the validity of a statute of, or an authority exercised under any state, on the ground of their being repugnant to the constitution, treaties, or laws of the United States, and the decision is in favor of their validity...
