Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. Quote

Philosophy may have gained by the attempts in recent years to look through the fiction to the fact and to generalize corporations, partnerships, and other groups into a single conception. But to generalize is to omit, and, in this instance, to omit one characteristic of the complete corporation, as called into being under modern statutes, that is most important in business and law.


Donnell v. Herring-Hall-Marvin Safe Co., 208 U.S. 267, 273 (1908)
