Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. Quote

But if we are to yield to fashionable conventions, it seems to me that theaters are as much devoted to public use as anything well can be. We have not that respect for art that is one of the glories of France. But to many the superfluous is the necessary, and it seems to me that Government does not go beyond its sphere in attempting to make life livable for them.


Tyson & Bro. v. Banton, 273 U.S. 418, 447 (1927)
