    15 Quotes by Ruth Bader Ginsburg

    So often in life, things that you regard as an impediment turn out to be great, good fortune.

    People ask me sometimes... “When will there be enough women on the court?” And my answer is: “When there are nine.” People are shocked. But there'd been nine men, and nobody's ever raised a question about that.

    Fight for the things that you care about, but do it in a way that will lead others to join you.

    Reacting in anger or annoyance will not advance one's ability to persuade.

    You can't have it all, all at once.

    My mother told me to be a lady. And for her, that meant be your own person, be independent.

    I'm a very strong believer in listening and learning from others.

    In every good marriage, it helps sometimes to be a little deaf.

    You can disagree without being disagreeable.

    Women will have achieved true equality when men share with them the responsibility of bringing up the next generation.

    Justices continue to think and can change. I am ever hopeful that if the court has a blind spot today, its eyes will be open tomorrow.
