A Quote by Benjamin Nathan Cardozo on certainty, faith, honesty, men, and sacrifice

What has once been settled by a precedent will not be unsettled overnight, for certainty and uniformity are gains not lightly sacrificed. Above all is this true when honest men have shaped their conduct on the faith of the pronouncement.

Benjamin Cardozo (1870 - 1938)
