Página 195 - It is only when our rights are invaded or seriously menaced that we resent injuries or make preparation for our defense.

The political system of the allied powers is essentially different in this respect from that of America.
Página 193 - the worst instrument of arbitrary power, the most destructive of English liberty and the fundamental principles of law, that ever was found in an English law book;" since they placed "the liberty of every man in the hands of every petty officer.
