QUOTATION:The great object of my fear is the federal judiciary. That body, like gravity, ever acting, with noiseless foot, and unalarming advance, gaining ground step by step, and holding what it gains, is ingulfing insidiously the special governments into the jaws of that which feeds them.
ATTRIBUTION:THOMAS JEFFERSON, letter to Judge Spencer Roane, March 9, 1821.—The Writings of Thomas Jefferson, ed. Andrew A. Lipscomb, vol. 15, p. 326 (1903).
SUBJECTS:Judiciary
