„I read "no law . . . abridging" to mean no law abridging.“

—  Hugo Black U.S. Supreme Court justice 1886 - 1971

Concurring opinion, Smith v. California, 361 U.S. 147 (1959).
Contexto: The First Amendment's language leaves no room for inference that abridgments of speech and press can be made just because they are slight. That Amendment provides, in simple words, that "Congress shall make no law... abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press." I read "no law... abridging" to mean no law abridging.

Contexto: I recall what you said to me once, that words have the power to change us. Your words have changed me, Tess; they have made me a better man than I would have been otherwise. Life is a book, and there are a thousand pages I have not yet read. I would read them together with you, as many as I can, before I die.
