More From Walter Lippmann
- "In a free society the state does not administer the affairs of men. It administers justice among men who conduct their own affairs."
- "The radical novelty of modern science lies precisely in the rejection of the belief… that the forces which move the stars and atoms are contingent upon the preferences of the human heart."
- "In government offices which are sensitive to the vehemence and passion of mass sentiment public men have no sure tenure. They are in effect perpetual office seekers, always on trial for their political lives, always required to court their restless constituents."
