Liberty unregulated by law degenerates into anarchy, which soon becomes the most horrid of all despotisms.
Millard Fillmore, State of the Union (1852)
Note: Today is the 213th anniversary of Millard Fillmore’s birthday. I’ve never really researched this, but if I had to guess, I would bet that Fillmore would make the short-list for the “President Most Americans Never Heard Of” Award. If such an award existed. I know almost nothing about Fillmore’s life. Except that he said this quote. And the one I’m posting later today 🙂
