Quote: William O Douglas

 

 “As nightfall does not come all at once, neither does oppression. In both instances, there is a twilight when everything remains seemingly unchanged. And it is in such twilight that we all must be most aware of change in the air — however slight — lest we become unwitting victims of the darkness.”

William O Douglas

 William Orville Douglas (1898 – 1980) was an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States.  He is the longest serving justice in the history of the Supreme Court, his term having lasted nearly 37 years.
