There is a hearty Puritanism in the view of human nature which pervades the instrument of 1787. It is the work of men who believed in original sin, and were resolved to leave open for transgressors no door which they could possibly shut.
-James Bryce, On the U.S. Constitution, The American Commonwealth, vol. 1, pt. 1, ch. 26, 1893
