James William Fulbright
Potter Stewart Quotes
A person's mere propinquity to others independently suspected of criminal activity does not give rise to probable cause to search that person.
Potter Stewart

Abortion is inherently different from other medical procedures because no other procedure involves the purposeful termination of a potential life.
Potter Stewart

At the very least, the freedom that Congress is empowered to secure includes the freedom to buy whatever a white man can buy, the right to live wherever a white man can live. If Congress cannot say that being a freeman means at least this much, then the 13th Amendment made a promise it cannot keep.
Potter Stewart

Potter Stewart

In fact, a fundamental interdependence exists between the personal right to liberty and the personal right in property.
Potter Stewart

It must always be remembered that what the Constitution forbids is not all searches and seizures, but unreasonable searches and seizures.
Potter Stewart

May the state fence in the harmless mentally ill solely to save its citizens from exposure to those whose ways are different? One might as well ask if the state, to avoid public unease, could incarcerate all who are physically unattractive or socially eccentric.
Potter Stewart

Swift justice demands more than just swiftness.
Potter Stewart

The 4th Amendment and the personal rights it secures have a long history. At the very core stands the right of a man to retreat into his own home and there be free from unreasonable governmental intrusion.
Potter Stewart

The Court today holds the Congress may say that some of the poor are too poor even to go bankrupt. I cannot agree.
Potter Stewart

The dichotomy between personal liberties and property rights is a false one. Property does not have rights. People have rights.
Potter Stewart

These death sentences are cruel and unusual in the same way that being struck by lightning is cruel and unusual.
Potter Stewart

To force a lawyer on a defendant can only lead him to believe that the law contrives against him.
Potter Stewart

We are concerned here only with the imposition of capital punishment for the crime of murder, and when a life has been taken deliberately by the offender, we cannot say that the punishment is invariably disproportionate to the crime. It is an extreme sanction suitable to the most extreme of crimes.
Potter Stewart
