The MMOB Daily Quote - Earl Warren

Today, our birthday boy is Earl Warren.

Here's a little info on Mr. Warren from

Earl Warren was an immensely popular Republican governor when President Dwight Eisenhower appointed him to the Supreme Court. Ike later regretted his choice; he had hoped to appoint a moderate conservative; Warren proved to be an unabashed liberal.

And some words from the man himself, provided by

“The censor's sword pierces deeply into the heart of free expression.”

“I always turn to the sports pages first, which records people's accomplishments. The front page has nothing but man's failures.”

“Ben Franklin may have discovered electricity- but it is the man who invented the meter who made the money"

“In civilized life, law floats in a sea of ethics.”

“I hate banks. They do nothing positive for anybody except take care of themselves. They're first in with their fees and first out when there's trouble.”

Cheers! - Jason
