Appointed to the Supreme Court of the United States by President Ronald Reagan on September 25th, Justice Sandra Day O’Connor was the first woman to rise to that status. Considered a moderate on the court, her legacy on the judicial system lives on. Though I disagreed with many of her decisions, I still respect Justice O’Connor for her dedication to the First Amendment and dedication. Here are my Top 10 Amazing Quotes Of Sandra Day O’Connor:

“I do not believe it is the function of the judiciary to step in and change the law because the times have changed. I do well understand the difference between legislating and judging. As a judge, it is not my function to develop public policy.”

“The proper role of the judiciary is one of interpreting and applying the law, not making it.”

“Society as a whole benefits immeasurably from a climate in which all persons, regardless of race or gender, may have the opportunity to earn respect, responsibility, advancement and remuneration based on ability.”

“The freedom to criticize judges and other public officials is necessary to a vibrant democracy. The problem comes when healthy criticism is replaced with more destructive intimidation and sanctions.”

“[C]opyright assures authors the right to their original expression, but encourages others to build freely upon the ideas and information conveyed by a work. […] This result is neither unfair nor unfortunate. It is the means by which copyright advances the progress of science and art.”

“Having family responsibilities and concerns just has to make you a more understanding person.”

“Do the best you can in every task, no matter how unimportant it may seem at the time. No one learns more about a problem than the person at the bottom.”

“Each of us brings to our job, whatever it is, our lifetime of experience and our values.”

“I had become increasingly concerned in recent years about the lack of civics education in our nation’s schools. In recent years, the schools have stopped teaching it. And it’s unfortunate.”

“Parents should continue to become more involved with their communities, and more involved in their children’s education.”
