Stran 235 - This case is decided upon an economic theory which a large part of the country does not entertain.

But I do not conceive that to be my duty, because I strongly believe that...

Stran 67 - Where low-browed baseness wafts perfume to pride. No ! Men, high-minded men, With powers as far above dull brutes endued, In forest, brake or den, As beasts excel cold rocks and brambles rude ; Men who their duties know, But know their rights, and, knowing, dare maintain, Prevent the long-aimed blow, And crush the tyrant while they rend the chain, — These constitute a State ; And sovereign law, that State's collected will, • O'er thrones and globes elate Sits empress, crowning good, repressing...
Stran 203 - ... idea of framing a government which should go on of itself peaceably, without needing continual recurrence to the state legislatures. I like the organization of the government into legislative, judiciary, and executive.
Stran 349 - No lawyer is obliged to act either as adviser or advocate for every person who may wish to become his client. He has the right to decline employment.
