"All conservatism is based upon the idea that if you leave things alone you leave them as they are. But you do not. If you leave a thing alone you leave it to a torrent of change."
Gilbert K. Chesterton
Warren E. Burger Quotes
A far greater factor than abolishing poverty is the deterrent effect of swift and certain consequences: swift arrest, prompt trial, certain penalty and - at some point - finality of judgment.
Warren E. Burger

Calculated risks of abuse are taken in order to preserve higher values.
Warren E. Burger

Concepts of justice must have hands and feet to carry out justice in every case in the shortest possible time and the lowest possible cost. This is the challenge to every lawyer and judge in America.
Warren E. Burger

Crime and the fear of crime have permeated the fabric of American life.
Warren E. Burger

Warren E. Burger

It is not possible to arrange for any broadcast of any Supreme Court proceeding, but when you get the Cabinet meetings on the air, call me.
Warren E. Burger

It is not unprofessional to give free legal advice, but advertising that the first visit will be free is a bit like a fox telling chickens he will not bite them until they cross the threshold of the hen house.
Warren E. Burger

Judges rule on the basis of law, not public opinion, and they should be totally indifferent to pressures of the times.
Warren E. Burger

Respondent's expectation that his garden was protected from observation is unreasonable and is not an expectation that society is prepared to honor.
Warren E. Burger

The courtrooms of America all too often have Piper Cub advocates trying to handle the controls of Boeing 747 litigation.
Warren E. Burger

The president's need for complete candor and objectivity from advisers calls for great deference from the courts.
Warren E. Burger

The trial of a case is a three-legged stool - a judge and two advocates.
Warren E. Burger

There can be no assumption that today's majority is "right" and the Amish and others like them are "wrong." A way of life that is odd or even erratic but interferes with no rights or interests of others is not to be condemned because it is different.
Warren E. Burger

There can be no doubt that the practice of opening legislative sessions with prayer has become part of the fabric of our society.
Warren E. Burger

There may be some incorrigible human beings who cannot be changed except by God's own mercy to that one person.
Warren E. Burger

To hold that the act of homosexual sodomy is somehow protected as a fundamental right would be to cast aside millennia of moral teaching.
Warren E. Burger

We are more casual about qualifying the people we allow to act as advocates in the courtroom than we are about licensing electricians.
Warren E. Burger
