A "Sacred Reverence" for the Constitution

"Wise politicians will be cautious about fettering the government
with restrictions that cannot be observed, because they know that
every break of the fundamental laws, though dictated by necessity,
impairs that sacred reverence which ought to be maintained in
the breast of rulers towards the constitution of a country."

-- Alexander Hamilton (Federalist No. 25, 21 December 1787)
