A Quote by Hugo LaFayette Black on constitution, duty, laws, life, persuasion, planning, and responsibility

No higher duty, or more solemn responsibility, rests upon this Court than that of translating into living law and maintaining this constitutional shield deliberately planned and inscribed for the benefit of every human being subject to our Constitution - of whatever race, creed or persuasion.

Hugo LaFayette Black (1886 - 1971)
