Charles Evans Hughes quotes

We are under a Constitution, but the Constitution is what the judges say it is, and the judiciary is the safeguard of our property and our liberty and our property under the Constitution.

I believe in work, hard work, and long hours of work. Men do not breakdown from overwork, but from worry and dissipation.

When we lose the right to be different, we lose the privilege to be free.

War should be made a crime, and those who instigate it should be punished as criminals.

The power to wage war is the power to wage war successfully.

Men do not die from overwork. They die from dissipation and worry.

Publicity is a great purifier because it sets in action the forces of public opinion, and in this country public opinion controls the courses of the nation.

A man has to live with himself, and he should see to it that he always has good company.

The first lesson in civics is that efficient government begins at home.

While democracy must have its organization and controls, its vital breath is individual liberty.

Dissents are appeals to the brooding spirit of the law, to the intelligence of another day.

In a number of cases dissenting opinions have in time become the law.

The United States is the greatest law factory the world has ever known.

When we deal with questions relating to principles of law and their applications, we do not suddenly rise into a stratosphere of icy certainty.
