“Tum Lælius, nunc fit illud Catonis certius, nec temporis unius, nec homini, esse
constitutionem Reipublicæ." — Cicero.

“The new building has been raised upon the old groundwork; the institutions of
one age have always been modelled and formed from those of the preceding, and their
lineal descent has never been interrupted or disturbed." — PALGRAVE.

“And thus it comes to pass that Magna Carta, the Acts of the Long Parliament,
the Declaration of Right, the Declaration of Independence, and the Constitution of
1787 constitute the record of an evolution.” – BRANTLY.

"The Government of the United States is not the result of special creation, but of
evolution." - FISKE.
