When judges were judges, they came up with gems like this

Justice Robert H. Jackson, 1892-1954

“It is not the function of the government
to keep the citizen from falling into error;
it is the function of the citizen to keep
the government from falling into error.”

Of course, fewer say this sort of thing these days this well, judges or not.
