Our intelligence by means of language.

Quote of the Day........

"All ideas having even the slightest 

redeeming social importance --

unorthodox ideas, controversial ideas, 

even ideas hateful to the

prevailing climate of opinion, 

have the full protection of the

guarantees [of the First Amendment]."

-- Justice William J. Brennan
(1906-1997) U. S. Supreme Court Justice
Source: Roth v. United States, 1957

*****


"Since when do you have to agree with people

to defend them from injustice?"

-- Lillian Hellman
(1905-1984) American playwright and memoirist

*****


"You seem ... to consider the judges as 

the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions; 

a very dangerous doctrine indeed, 

and one which would place us under 

the despotism of an oligarchy... 

The Constitution has erected no such single tribunal."

-- Thomas Jefferson
(1743-1826), US Founding Father, 
drafted the Declaration of Independence, 3rd US President.

Making of Mischief...........

All mischief is momentary

If we do not lend ourselves to it

It will pass, losing its momentum.
