A quote from Alexander Hamilton

They would contain various exceptions to powers not granted; and, on this very account, would afford a colorable pretext to claim more than were granted. For why declare that things shall not be done which there is no power to do?

— Speaking of a bill of rights. The Federalist Papers #84 [1787–1788]
