WILLIAM J. BRENNAN QUOTES

Death is not only an unusually severe punishment, unusual in its pain, in its finality and in its enormity, but it serves no penal purpose more effectively than a less severe punishment; therefore the principle inherent in the clause that prohibits pointless infliction of excessive punishment when less severe punishment can adequately achieve the same purposes invalidates the punishment.

WILLIAM J. BRENNAN, judicial opinion, Jul. 2, 1976

If the right to privacy means anything, it is the right of the individual, married or single, to be free from unwanted government intrusion into matters so fundamentally affecting a person as the decision to bear or beget a child.

WILLIAM BRENNAN, attributed, Privacy: A Vanishing Value?
