Side 367 - there is no liberty, if the power of judging be not separated from the legislative and executive powers.
Side 291 - Those great and good men foresaw that troublous times would arise, when rulers and people would become restive under restraint, and seek by sharp and decisive measures to accomplish ends deemed just and proper; and that the principles of constitutional liberty would be in peril, unless established by irrepealable law.
