A Quote by John Marshall on constitution and spirit

Let the end be legitimate, let it be within the scope of the constitution, and all means which are appropriate, which are plainly adapted to that end, which are not prohibited, but consist with the letter and spirit of the constitution, are constitutional.

John Marshall (1755 - 1835)
