Quotes From History

I know the campaign season is over, but the following resonated with me sometime around mid-October:"I like paying taxes. With them I buy civilization." - Justice Oliver Wendell HolmesApparently this derives from a conversation between Holmes and a younger secretary. The quote is from Felix Frankfurter, Mr. Justice Holmes and the Supreme Court, 2nd Ed. (Cambridge: Harvard University Press, 1961)
