PRIVACY
[ Also see Solitude ]

I think we left out one of the really important elements contributing to the dynamism of society, and that is the right to privacy. I mean something more than the right to shave in private. I mean the right to join what I want to join, to do what I want to do, or not to do what I might do without giving anyone a reason, either in advance or afterwards. That does not mean that I am seeking for irresponsibility socially.
      - Chester I. Barnard,
        in "Basic Elements of a Free Dynamic Society," in "Harvard Business Review," Nov., 1951

The makers of our Constitution undertook to secure conditions favorable to the pursuit of happiness. . . . They conferred, as against the government, the right to be let alone--the most comprehensive of rights and the right most valued by civilized men.
      - Louis D. Brandeis,
        part of his dissent in the case of Olmstead v. United States, 277 U.S. 438, 478 (1928)

If I want to put my tits on my back, it's nobody's business but my own.
      - Cher,
        on ABC's television show "Primetime Thursday"

A man's home is no longer his castle; it is no longer a place away from urgent tasks because the telephone breaches the walls with imperious demands.
      - Charles E. Hummel,
        The Tyranny of the Urgent

As lacking privacy as a goldfish.
      - Old American Saying

I make my own time. I make my own terms. I cannot see how God or Nature can ever get the start of me.
      - Henry David Thoreau,
        Thoreau's Journal of 1841

We live thick and are in each other's way, and stumble over one another, and I think that we thus lose some respect for one another.
      - Henry David Thoreau, Walden

The fantastic advances in the field of electronic communication constitute a greater danger to the privacy of the individual.
      - Earl Warren
