William Borah

The marvel of all history is the patience with which men and women submit to burdens unnecessarily laid upon them by their governments.More William Borah quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I look upon those who would deny others the right to urge and argue their position, however irksome and pernicious they may seem, as intellectual and moral cowards.More William Borah quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
There is nothing that dies so hard and rallies so often as intolerance. The vices and passions which it summons to its support are the most ruthless and the most persistent harbored in the human breast. They sometimes sleep but they never seem to die. Anything, any extraordinary situation, any unnecessary controversy, may light those fires again and plant in our republic that which has destroyed every republic which undertook to nurse it.More William Borah quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Without an unfettered press, without liberty of speech, all of the outward forms and structures of free institutions are a sham, a pretense - the sheerest mockery. If the press is not free; if speech is not independent and untrammeled; if the mind is shackled or made impotent through fear, it makes no difference under what form of government you live, you are a subject and not a citizen.More William Borah quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Peace purchased at the cost of any part of our national integrity is fit only for slaves, and even when purchased for such a price it is a delusion, for it cannot last.More William Borah quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
