A Quote by Charles Evans Hughes on america, authority, brevity, exercise, glory, government, loyalty, people, and power

We [the Government] are here not as masters but as servants, we are not here to glory in power, but to attest our loyalty to the commands and restrictions laid down by our sovereign, the people of the United States, in whose name and by whose will we exercise our brief authority.

Charles Evans Hughes (1862 - 1948)
