The Great Chief Justice

John Marshall
1755-1835


"United we are strong, divided we fall"

"Silverheels"

"That [the slave trade] is
contrary to the laws of nature
will scarcely be denied. That
every man has a right to the
fruits of his own labour, is
generally admitted; and that no
other person can rightfully
deny him of those fruits, and
appropriate them against his
will; seems to be the necessary
result of this situation."

[Right side:]
"That this court dares not usurp
power is most true. That this
court does not shrink from its
duty is not less true."

"The president is elected from the
mass of the people, and, on the
expiration of the time for which
he is so elected, returns to the
mass of the people again."

purpose of a judiciary but
to execute the laws in a
peaceful, orderly manner,
without shedding blood, or
creating a contest, or
availing yourselves of force?"

"It is emphatically, the
province and duty of the
judicial department to say
what the law is."

"...provision is made in a
constitution, intended to
endure for ages to come,
and consequently to be
adapted to the various
crises of human affairs."

"I have never sought to
enlarge the judicial power
beyond its proper bounds, nor
feared to carry it to the fullest
extent that duty required.

By the constitution of the
United States, the president,
as well as every other officer
of the government, may be
impeached and may be
removed from office on high
crimes and misdemeanors."
