Quote of the Day (Louis Brandeis, on ‘The Office of Private Citizen’)

“The most important office, and the one which all of us can and should fill, is that of private citizen. The duties of the office of private citizen cannot under a republican form of government be neglected without serious injury to the public.”—Future Associate Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis (1856-1941), to a reporter for the Boston Record, April 14, 1903, quoted in Alpheus Thomas Mason, Brandeis: A Free Man's Life (1946)
