|Political, social, and economic changes entail the recognition of new rights, and the common law, in its eternal youth, grows to meet the demands of society . . .Now the right to life has come to mean the right to enjoy life, — the right to be let alone; the right to liberty secures the exercise of extensive civil privileges; and the term property” has grown to comprise every form of possession — intangible, as well as tangible.
– Louis Brandeis (1856-1941)
|Every man has a property in his own person. This nobody has any right to but himself. The labor of his body and the work of his hands are properly his.
– John Locke (1632-1704)
