Louis Dembitz Brandeis (18561941)
Those who won our independence believed that the final end of the State was to make men free to develop their faculties; and that in its government the deliberative forces should prevail over the arbitrary. They valued liberty both as an end and as a means. They believed liberty to be the secret of happiness and courage to be the secret of liberty.
Justice LOUIS D. BRANDEIS, concurring, Whitney v. California, 274 U.S. 375 (1927).
