Famous quotes containing the words hall and/or constitution:

    The statements of science are hearsay, reports from a world outside the world we know. What the poet tells us has long been known to us all, and forgotten. His knowledge is of our world, the world we are both doomed and privileged to live in, and it is a knowledge of ourselves, of the human condition, the human predicament.

    Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882–1945)
