第 513 頁 - NEXT to permanency in office, nothing can contribute more to the independence of the judges than a fixed provision for their support.
第 211 頁 - But it is not on slight implication and vague conjecture that the legislature is to be pronounced to have transcended its powers, and its acts to be considered as void. The opposition between the constitution and the law should be such that the judge feels a clear and strong conviction of their incompatibility with each other.
第 442 頁 - ... shall not affect any act done, or any right accruing or accrued or established, or any suit or proceeding had or commenced in any civil case, before the time when such repeal shall take effect.
第 513 頁 - The judiciary, on the contrary, has no influence over either the sword or the purse ; no direction either of the strength or of the wealth of the society; and can take no active resolution whatever. It may truly be said to have neither force nor will, but merely judgment ; and must ultimately depend upon the aid of the executive arm even for the efficacy of its judgments.

第 211 頁 - The interpretation or construction of the constitution is as much a judicial act, and requires the exercise of the same legal discretion, as the interpretation or construction of a law. To contend that the courts of justice must obey the requisitions of an Act of the legislature when it appears to them to have been passed in violation of the constitution, would be to contend that the law was superior to the constitution, and that the judges had no right to look into it, and regard it as a paramount...
