"But the possession and enjoyment of all rights are subject to such reasonable conditions as may be deemed by the governing authority of the country essential to the safety, health, peace, good order and morals of the community. Even liberty itself, the greatest of all rights, is not unrestricted license to act according to one's will. It is only freedom of restraint under conditions essential to the equal enjoyment of the same right by others. It is then liberty regulated by law." ~ (Crowley v. Christensen, 137 U.S. 86, 89 [1890])
