George Sutherland

“The three great rights are bound together as to be essentially one right. To give a man his life, but deny him his liberty, is to take from him all that makes his life worth living. To give him his liberty, but take from him the property which is the fruit and badge of his liberty, is to still leave him a slave.” -- George Sutherland, Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court, 1921
