Quote of the Moment: William O. Douglas, 5th Amendment

June 23, 2007

Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas

The Fifth Amendment is an old friend and a good friend. It is one of the great landmarks in man’s struggle to be free of tyranny, to be decent and civilized. It is our way of escape from the use of torture.

William O. Douglas, “An Almanac of Liberty,” 1954.

Douglas served longer on the Supreme Court than any other justice, from 1939 to 1975.
