"I feel, however good a Constitution may be,
it is sure to turn out bad because those who are called to work it, happen to be a bad lot.
However bad a Constitution may be, it may turn out to be good
if those who are called to work it, happen to be a good lot.
The working of a Constitution does not depend wholly upon the nature of the Constitution.
The Constitution can provide only the organs of State
such as the Legislature, the Executive and the Judiciary.
The factors on which the working of those organs of the State depend are the people and the political parties they will set up as their instruments to carry out their wishes and their politics."
