William Murray Mansfield
A man wants no protection when his conduct is strictly right.
Mansfield quotes
The last end that can happen to any man, never comes too soon, if he falls in support of the law and liberty of his country: for liberty is synonymous to law and government.
An estimated value is a precarious measure of justice, compared with the specific thing.

Tut, man, decide promptly, but never give any reasons for your decisions. Your decisions may be right, but your reasons are sure to be wrong.
