Ruth Bader Ginsburg died yesterday at the age of 87. Ginsburg spent her life fighting for equal rights and against injustice. Nominated to the Supreme Court in 1993 by President Clinton, she remained at her post through these difficult times and failing health because she could see that her work wasn’t yet done.
Instead of discussing a park or monument for today’s post, I’d like to share some RBG quotes. May Ruth rest in peace and may this generation continue the forward momentum she fought tirelessly for. Onward.
My mother told me to be a lady. And for her, that meant be your own person, be independent.Ruth Bader Ginsburg
When I’m sometimes asked ‘When will there be enough [women on the Supreme Court]?’ and I say ‘When there are nine,’ people are shocked. But there’d been nine men, and nobody’s ever raised a question about that.Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Fight for the things that you care about, but do it in a way that will lead others to join you.Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Real change, enduring change, happens one step at a time.Ruth Bader Ginsburg
My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed.Ruth Bader Ginsburg on her deathbed to her granddaughter
