The DISCLOSE Act is a testament to the wisdom of the Su

The DISCLOSE Act is a testament to the wisdom of the Supreme Court’s decision in Citizens United. The First Amendment sought to place political speech beyond the government’s control, and we can be glad that it did.
Bradley A. Smith
I have lost every respect for U.S. justice. The judgment by the Supreme Court and the other, even more absurd judgment by a New York circuit court deciding that Iran should pay damages for 9/11 are the height of absurdity.
Mohammad Javad Zarif
The failure of women to produce genius of the first rank in most of the supreme forms of human effort has been used to block the way of all women of talent and ambition for intellectual achievement.
Anna Garlin Spencer
A Supreme Court decision that concessions of this sort were unconstitutional would have taken them off the table and actually increased the effective sovereignty of elected officials.
Michael Kinsley
If the publicly passed campaign finance laws had not been struck down by the Supreme Court, Club for Growth Action would be illegal, and Heritage Action wouldn’t have the SuperPAC threat to back up its small ad purchases.
Zephyr Teachout
The Supreme Court ruled that disabled golfer Casey Martin has a legal right to ride in a golf cart between shots at PGA Tour events. Man, the next thing you know, they’re going to have some guy carry his clubs around for him.
Jon Stewart
The Supreme Court is not elected, and it is therefore not a proper arbiter of social policy.
Lamar S. Smith
Wisdom is the supreme part of happiness.
Sophocles
PM Modi’s irresponsible behaviour and an overzealous Supreme Court will damage the Indian federal structure.
Hamsalekha
In appointing someone to serve on the Alabama Supreme Court, it is imperative to appoint someone with impeccable legal credentials and with unquestioned character and integrity – Judge Brad Mendheim exceeds those requirements.
Kay Ivey
Boris Johnson tried to prorogue parliament to get his disaster of a Brexit through, bringing hundreds of thousands out onto the streets for the ‘Stop The Coup’ protests, and seeing his cynical strategy overturned by the Supreme Court in the process.
Clive Lewis

Just because a majority of the Supreme Court declares something to be ‘constitutional’ does not make it so.
Rand Paul
While some of the tales of woe emanating from the court are enough to bring tears to the eyes, it is true that only Supreme Court justices and schoolchildren are expected to and do take the entire summer off.
John Roberts
I find it hard to believe that Senators or the American public will classify Sotomayor as unqualified, particularly given the thin credentials of many of our eighteenth and nineteenth century Supreme Court Justices.
David Stras
Alejandro Jodorowsky is one of the supreme nut jobs in movie history, and of course I mean that in the nicest way.
Steve Erickson
Of all that is good, sublimity is supreme. Succeeding is the coming together of all that is beautiful. Furtherance is the agreement of all that is just. Perseverance is the foundation of all actions.
Lao Tzu
The allegiance of the citizen, in the only sense in which the word can be tolerated in a republic, is due to the law. What idea other men may have of a law higher than the supreme law, I know not. Like the notion of the Stoics concerning Fate, it is perfectly incomprehensible.
James L. Petigru
Each justice enters the Supreme Court possessing a record of opinion by which he or she is measured, and that without threat of election or outside influence, they will apply the Constitution as they always have; thus, it’s ridiculous to assert the opposite.
Dana Loesch
I have never endorsed Roy Moore. Just the fact that he was forced off the state supreme court is enough for me.
Susan Collins
Thankfully now, through the merciful hand of God, I do perceive and have been fully reinformed of his omnipotence. It is truly a love supreme.
John Coltrane
To hear both critics and defenders talk about the fitness of Judge Sonia Sotomayor for the Supreme Court, you’d think the most successful Supreme Court justices had been warm, collegial consensus-builders. But history tells a different story.
Noah Feldman
On the whole, we think of our consumers – other judges, lawyers, the public. The law that the Supreme Court establishes is the law that they must live by, so all things considered, it’s better to have it clearer than confusing.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Any successful nominee should possess both the temperament to interpret the law and the wisdom to do so fairly. The next Supreme Court Justice should have a record of protecting individual rights and a strong willingness to put aside any political agenda.
Bennie Thompson
I deny the very existence of that Almighty Supreme Being.
Bhagat Singh
The Supreme Court has increasingly come down on the side of big corporations instead of workers and middle-class families.
Bob Casey, Jr.
Well, the idea of God as a supreme being means that he is simply like us, writ large, and just bigger and better, the end product of the series; whereas this divine personality that we meet in the Bible was, for centuries, regarded simply as a symbol of a greater transcendence that lay beyond it.
Karen Armstrong
As a result of my study, I came to the conclusion that a common supreme authority was undesirable.
Fredrik Bajer
I also believe that the Supreme Court should be the final arbiter of all federal questions.
Judy Biggert
Conservatives complain that the Supreme Court is too liberal. Liberals complain that it’s too conservative. Both charges are inaccurate: in reality the Court is a careful political actor that arguably represents the center of gravity of American politics better than most politicians do.
Benjamin Wittes
The supreme challenge of Labor is to recognise our ‘revolutionary moment’ when it arrives. And to have the courage to seize it – wholly, boldly, and completely.
Bill Shorten
If someone has copyright over some piece of your stuff, you can sell it without permission from the copyright holder because the copyright holder can only control the ‘first-sale.’ The Supreme Court has recognized this doctrine since 1908.
Marvin Ammori
If you look at the architecture of Washington, D.C., it is not by mistake that the dome over the Capitol is the very center of the federal city. The White House and the Supreme Court are set about us, satellites to the supreme power of the people expressed in the legislative authority of Congress.
Cathy McMorris Rodgers
When I made my Obey logo, it was 100 percent an homage to Barbara Kruger’s work and 0 percent had anything to do with Supreme.

Well, just as the Supreme Court follows the election returns, you can bet that the bureaucracy does as well.
James Woolsey
It’s the people’s Supreme Court, and we should let them decide its direction.
Cathy McMorris Rodgers
God the Father, the supreme Architect, had already built this cosmic home we behold, the most sacred temple of His godhead, by the laws of His mysterious wisdom.
Giovanni Pico della Mirandola
Every generation gets the Constitution that it deserves. As the central preoccupations of an era make their way into the legal system, the Supreme Court eventually weighs in, and nine lawyers in robes become oracles of our national identity.
Noah Feldman
The Supreme Court has insulted you over and over again, Lord. They’ve taken your Bible away from the schools. They’ve forbidden little children to pray. They’ve taken the knowledge of God as best they can, and organizations have come into court to take the knowledge of God out of the public square of America.
Pat Robertson
As president, I will only nominate judges – including Supreme Court justices – who will commit to upholding Roe v. Wade as settled law and protect women’s reproductive rights.
Kirsten Gillibrand
We want to assert the very principle that truth is absolute, truth is supreme, truth is never disposable in national political life.

Charles Duhigg
I always like to take my time and examine the two candidates, see not only the two candidates but the policies they will bring in, the people they will bring in, who they might appoint to the Supreme Court, and look at the whole range of issues before making a decision.
Colin Powell
In my own experience, I plotted and planned my life when I was getting out of law school to know by what year I’d make it to the Supreme Court. That didn’t work out the way I planned.
Lloyd Blankfein
The Supreme Court has never ruled that Congress can use the Commerce Clause to require individuals to engage in an activity they have chosen to avoid. Yet that is precisely what Obamacare does: It forces Americans without health insurance to purchase coverage. Such a requirement is unprecedented and unconstitutional.
John Cornyn
Anytime you get nine people together, whether it’s at a party or it’s in the conference room of the Supreme Court, you do have to maintain some order, or it does kind of degenerate into squabbling pretty quickly.
John Roberts
The national will is the supreme law of the Republic, and on all subjects within the limits of his constitutional powers should be faithfully obeyed by the public servant.
Martin Van Buren
If the Supreme Court rules that rent control is an unconstitutional taking of property, it would put all sorts of zoning rules in danger.

Once E.U. law ceases to be supreme it is unclear how this vast body of law, which will then be incorporated into our own domestic law, will be interpreted by our own courts.
Dominic Grieve
The man is king. The man is supreme.
Bobby Riggs
Bjork’s album, ‘Homogenic,’ it’s got beats, strings, traditional Icelandic stuff. That’s my benchmark for what an album should sound like, right up there with Coltrane’s ‘A Love Supreme’ and Marvin Gaye’s ‘What’s Going On.’
Jason Moran
Free speech has been used by the Supreme Court to give immense power to the wealthiest members of our society.
Noam Chomsky
I regard the writing of humor as a supreme artistic challenge.
Herman Wouk
Until lawmakers can disentangle property taxes from public education, inequalities – perpetuated by the Supreme Court and Congress – will persist.
Clint Smith
As President Franklin Delano Roosevelt learned when he tried to pack the Supreme Court, the three branches of government are coequal for a reason. Neither the executive branch or the legislative branch should use the third branch to a pursue a partisan agenda.
Daniel Pfeiffer
To guard our most cherished values and the law that holds us together, America needs a Supreme Court justice committed to the people’s Constitution. Neil Gorsuch is that person.
Josh Hawley
Deciding not to decide is, of course, among the most important things done by the Supreme Court. It takes a lot of doing, but it can be done.
Thurgood Marshall
When I worked in the Department of Justice, in the office of the solicitor general, it was my job to argue cases for the United States before the Supreme court. I always found it very moving to stand before the justices and say, ‘I speak for my country.’
John Roberts
To suppose more than one supreme Source of infinite wisdom, power, and all perfections, is to assert that there is no supreme Being in existence.
Adam Clarke
President Obama had two Supreme Court nominees in his first term. There was no filibuster against them.

Our national media refuses to report that even the Supreme Court did not say marriage was a human right in all cases nor did it say that the heterosexual definition violated anyone’s right or that the heterosexual definition of marriage was unconstitutional.
Stockwell Day
No matter how the Supreme Court rules on the constitutionality of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010, states are making progress in developing strategies to provide more access to quality health care coverage.
John Hickenlooper
The things we make have one supreme quality – they live longer than us. We perish, they survive; we have one life, they have many lives, and in each life they can mean different things. Which means that, while we all have one biography, they have many.
Neil MacGregor
We may not be able to control the Supreme Court… but we can control the money.
Henry Bonilla
Of course, the Supreme Court’s work is vital not just to a region of the country, but to the whole, vital to the protection of the people’s liberties under law and to the continuity of our Constitution, the greatest charter of human liberty the world has ever known.
Neil Gorsuch
It’s been 80 years since the Senate has confirmed a Supreme Court nominee who was nominated during an election. And particularly when the court hangs in the balance, it makes no sense whatsoever to give Barack Obama the power to jam through a judge in the final election year.
Ted Cruz
The Supreme Court’s only armor is the cloak of public trust; its sole ammunition, the collective hopes of our society.
Irving R. Kaufman
The judiciary wields enormous power but is utterly mysterious to most Americans. People know more about ‘American Idol’ judges than Supreme Court judges. Done right, social media is a high-octane tool to boost civic awareness.
Don Willett
The Second Amendment does protect the right to people to possess weapons for self-defense in the home. That’s what the Supreme Court said.
Laurence Tribe
We need a Supreme Court justice who will restore fairness, balance, and independence to the highest level of the judiciary. Based on his record, I do not believe Gorsuch would be that kind of justice.
Bob Casey, Jr.
The Supreme Court has been very clear: when it comes to religious discrimination, you can take intent into consideration.
Neal Katyal
There is no force that can put an end to the human quest for freedom, and China will, in the end, become a nation ruled by law, where human rights reign supreme.
Liu Xiaobo
You need to play with supreme confidence, or else you’ll lose again, and then losing becomes a habit.
Joe Paterno
Nobody has been arrested on Wall Street for the crash of 2008. They’re not paying their fair share of the taxes. And now with the Citizens United case of the Supreme Court, they get to buy politicians up out in the open.
Michael Moore
The reversal of a Supreme Court opinion is possible.
Mike Rounds
War is the supreme drama of a completely mechanized society.
Lewis Mumford
If you’re a Supreme Court justice, the American people have elevated you to one of the highest offices in the land out of the goodness of their heart and out of deference to your legal wisdom. You get a lifetime appointment, limitless prestige, a great office, and what I have to assume is a very comfortable chair.
Donna Brazile
The Supreme Being I would sign up for would not prove his omnipotence by saving one life while ending dozens, or hundreds, or thousands. Nor would he summon an angel to heaven by ending a first grader’s life at the hands of a gunman or sadist.
Jeff Greenfield
The U.S. Supreme Court has established that the tribes own their water. What I’d like to focus on is doing something with the water that results in economic development.
Dave Freudenthal
Deep down I knew that if Hell existed, it was a real place full of ruthless, venal people, like the commodity pits at the Chicago Board of Trade, Disney World, or oral arguments before the United States Supreme Court.
Richard Dooling
My nine-year-old was trying to read my spiel. When she tried to pronounce the word ‘pharmaceutical,’ it was frightening. She would love to argue in the Supreme Court one day. My son asked me, ‘Mommy, why do you have to have so many arguments? Why can’t you have agreements?’
Lisa Blatt
The good news from the U.S. military survey of focus groups is that Iraqis do accept the Nuremberg principles. They understand that sectarian violence and the other postwar horrors are contained within the supreme international crime committed by the invaders.
Noam Chomsky
Filling a vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court is a solemn process for our nation, and I hope Senate consideration of Judge Barrett will not descend into the dishonorable spectacle that Americans witnessed during the confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
Cindy Hyde-Smith
If torture is going to be administered as a last resort in the ticking-bomb case, to save enormous numbers of lives, it ought to be done openly, with accountability, with approval by the president of the United States or by a Supreme Court justice.
Alan Dershowitz
Simplicity in character, in manners, in style; in all things the supreme excellence is simplicity.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
You must be in supreme physical condition. If your body isn’t right, you cannot play in the Premier League.
Carlos Tevez
It’s a fact that if Hillary Clinton is elected, the country’s chance to have a Supreme Court that values the Constitution – and the genuine liberty and self-government for which millions have died – is gone. Not for four years, or eight, but forever.
Eric Metaxas
I don’t think that the Supreme Court really takes cases with kind of a theme in mind. They get about 10,000 requests a year, and what are called ‘petitions for certiorari,’ which are essentially 30 page documents which say, ‘Hey, Court, hear my case.’ And they don’t take very many of them.
Neal Katyal
The Supreme Court, once in existence, cannot be abolished, because its foundation is not in an act of the legislative department of the Government, but in the Constitution of the United States.
Samuel Freeman Miller
I was socially isolated as a kid. I had friends, but I wasn’t very good at sports and that sort of thing so I became quite comfortable being by myself, exploring. The world was my private playground, and in it, I was supreme. Darwin, Faraday, Huxley and other great scientists were my companions.
Vilayanur S. Ramachandran
Many studies or theories by political scientists fit some subset of cases that a court decides, but literally no theory can account for all of them, particularly when it comes to studying a complex institution like the Supreme Court.
David Stras
I’m very upset that the Supreme Court ruled that citizens don’t have standing to challenge the faith based initiatives on constitutional grounds.
Martha Nussbaum
Stability in law – particularly constitutional law – is critically important; the Supreme Court would do well to remember that.
Benjamin Wittes
We binge on instant knowledge, but we are learning the hazards, and readers are warier than they used to be of nanosecond-interpretations of Supreme Court decisions.
Evan Osnos
In my long life I have found peace, joy, and happiness beyond my fondest hopes and dreams. One of the supreme benedictions of my life has been my marriage to an elect daughter of God. I love her with all my heart and soul.
James E. Faust
I grew up in Brooklyn, N.Y., and I’m a great believer that you can’t have too conservative a President nor too liberal a Supreme Court. So I’m a walking contradiction. I believe that you should try to really protect people’s rights in every way, and also, people should be allowed to do what they do.
Jerry Della Femina
Jesus Christ is our supreme commander, but He operates only through His word, which is unquestionably a training manual. However, He has many interpreters, and few people see the Bible as a true training manual.
Gary North
The Supreme Court has been clear that states have the right to protect their citizens against out-of-state regulations that would burden those citizens.
Josh Hawley
People often ask how my hair has that supreme fullness even at midnight. Here’s a trick that one of our Fox News stylists taught me: Backcomb your hair just at the crown for height, and then put a large velcro roller there and wear it for as long as you can. I keep rollers in until showtime.
Harris Faulkner
Boxing is dangerous. Anything can happen, so you need supreme confidence. That’s why I represent myself like nobody can beat me, because I need to truly believe it.
Ryan Garcia
There is no doubt that Republican control of the Senate is the only way to preserve the Constitutional integrity of our Supreme Court, realign our military’s force structure, and ensure the basic freedoms and liberties that make ours the greatest country in the world.
Todd Wilcox
My definition of God is the highest supreme feeling of beauty and light and happiness.
Princess Nokia
Of course I would have preferred to win in the Supreme Court as personal vindication and to vacate my sentence.
Peter Sunde
We were environmentalists of the Teddy Roosevelt theory. We believed in separation of church and state. We believed in the independence of the Supreme Court not being subject to politicians.
Pete McCloskey
When I see the Trump supporters on television explaining themselves, I don’t get a feeling of supreme confidence. They’ve created a revolution, and now maybe they’re a little scared by it.
Robert J. Shiller
The American people should be the one to decide which direction the Supreme Court will go.
Jeff Sessions
We are a religious people whose institutions presuppose a Supreme Being.
William O. Douglas
Very curious, at the age of about 13 years, Oswald began to study Marxism and he kept on in his writing, affirming that he was a Marxist. Probably he did want to show himself as a great, supreme Marxist.
John Sherman Cooper
How can this full, perfect, just and supreme voice of the people, embodied in the Constitution, be brought to bear, habitually and steadily, in counteracting the fatal tendency of the government to the absolute and despotic control of the numerical majority?
John C. Calhoun
Beethoven’s reputation is based entirely on gossip. The middle Beethoven represents a supreme example of a composer on an ego trip.
Glenn Gould
The Supreme Court needs jurists, not politicians.
Timothy Noah
You know, there are only about 10 people in the United States that have ever argued 25 cases before the Supreme Court, this man has won 25 cases before the Supreme Court. He’s an overwhelming choice.
Rod Parsley
That is, we believed, the supreme duty of the parent, who only was permitted to claim in some degree the priestly office and function, since it is his creative and protecting power which alone approaches the solemn function of Deity.
Charles Eastman
I have no doubt concerning that Supreme Goodness, who is so eager to share His blessings, or of that everlasting love which makes Him more eager to bestow perfection on us than we are to receive it.
Saint Ignatius
Installing an activist liberal majority on the Supreme Court will put religious liberties at risk for generations to come.
Mercedes Schlapp
The Supreme Court is having a hard time integrating schools. What chance do I have to integrate audiences?
Nat King Cole
The Supreme Court overrules, distinguishes, and upholds prior precedents. Sometimes it ignores them. But it does not – cannot – ‘defy’ them.
Wendy Long
Surrounded by all the members of my dear family, enjoying the affection of numerous friends, who have never abandoned me, and possessing a sufficient share of all that contributes to make life agreeable, I lift my grateful eyes towards the Supreme Being and feel that I am happy.
John James Audubon
Judge Kavanaugh never wavered from his vow not to buckle under political or public pressure, which is a characteristic we need in a Supreme Court justice.
Cindy Hyde-Smith
The search for truth is not a trade by which a man can support himself; for a priest it is a supreme peril .
Alfred Loisy
The Solicitor General is responsible for overseeing appellate litigation on behalf of the United States and with representing the United States in the Supreme Court.
Neal Katyal
Each morning when I awake, I experience again a supreme pleasure – that of being Salvador Dali.
Salvador Dali
If what distinguishes us from other species is speech, then poetry, which is the supreme linguistic operation, is our anthropological – indeed, genetic – goal.
Joseph Brodsky
The separation of church and state is a source of strength, but the conscience of our nation does not call for separation between men of state and faith in the Supreme Being.
Lyndon B. Johnson
What many people, I think, don’t really understand is how much their rights really turn on the interpretation of the Supreme Court.
Kimberle Williams Crenshaw
It’s hard not to have a big year at the Supreme Court.

I think the Supreme Court does have the authority, which is not used, to declare a blanket right for all people, all adults.
Jack Kevorkian
Devotion complete culminates in knowledge supreme.
Ramana Maharshi
Many well-meaning intelligent people have argued since the May 17, 1954, decision of the United States Supreme Court outlawing segregation in the public schools that communication between the races has broken down.
Benjamin E. Mays
In every democracy, it is the people’s will that is supreme. We should translate the intense yearning of the people of India and Pakistan for friendship into meaningful measures of cooperation in every walk of life.
Rajiv Gandhi
I believe a man is better anchored who has a belief in the Supreme Being.
James Cash Penney
The problem is, Mahadev is the Supreme Being, the Ultimate God. I’ve already played the Supreme Power. After one climbs the Himalayan peak, one can only go down from there. Any thing I do, any God I play would be a climb-down.
Mohit Raina
There are all sorts of cries that the leaders of the Green Movement should submit themselves to the supreme leader, but that won’t take place. Both sides have to be prepared for a serious negotiation.
Abdolkarim Soroush
The Supreme Court should televise its proceedings.
Neal Katyal
Plato stands for the union of truth and goodness in the supreme idea of God.
James Mark Baldwin
With the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, the Republican political establishment has done something it is not actually used to doing. It won. It isn’t that Republicans have never won before, it is just that they typically win by forfeit.
Charlie Kirk
Over time, I think, and with further appointments to the Supreme Court, I think that the Roe v. Wade opinion will fall.
William Barr
If you don’t have any Coltrane, ‘A Love Supreme’ will do it for you. It will explain everything. Even if you don’t get it, it will still explain everything. That’s how deep it is.
DJ Premier
If the court is a political institution making important political decisions, then the public should debate the politics of Supreme Court decisions.
Marvin Ammori
Short of the passage of a Constitutional Amendment protecting marriage as between one man and one woman, the U.S. Supreme Court has the final say.
Luther Strange
The separation of church and state was meant to protect church from state; a state that declares religion off limits in public life is a state that declares itself supreme over all religious values.
Ben Shapiro
Writing is the supreme solace.
W. Somerset Maugham
It is absolutely true in war, were other things equal, that numbers, whether men, shells, bombs, etc., would be supreme. Yet it is also absolutely true that other things are never equal and can never be equal.

James Lasdun
Donald Trump has shouted ‘hoax’ hundreds of times, about everything from climate change to Supreme Court rulings to impeachment.
Brian Stelter
After ‘Roe v. Wade’ – when the U.S. Supreme Court legalized abortion in 1973 – I thought the national conversation about abortion and birth control would be over. It was not.
Karen DeCrow
A great actor is independent of the poet, because the supreme essence of feeling does not reside in prose or in verse, but in the accent with which it is delivered.
Lee Strasberg
The Constitution has to be supreme.
Nawaz Sharif
Emotion is the surest arbiter of a poetic choice, and it is the priest of all supreme unions in the mind.

Marco Verratti
I used to buy into a former Supreme Court justice’s argument that you can’t scream fire in a crowded theater. Well, I think you can.

Antoine de Saint-Exupery
Ruth Bader Ginsburg is the most liberal and illumined of the nine Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court.
Donna Leon
The Twist was a guided missile launched from the ghetto into the heart of suburbia. The Twist succeeded, as politics, religion and law could never do, in writing in the heart and soul what the Supreme Court could only write on the books.
Eldridge Cleaver
The safety of the republic being the supreme law, and Texas having offered us the key to the safety of our country from all foreign intrigues and diplomacy, I say accept the key… and bolt the door at once.
Andrew Jackson
I think for a heroine to do comedy and action and also be glamorous is a big thing. That’s why ‘Supreme’ will be very close to my heart.
Raashi Khanna
Men and women have served and died to protect American democracy, but their sacrifice will be for naught if that democracy dies from the poison the Supreme Court has injected into our political organs.

Elliott Abrams
Nobody is entitled to a promotion to the Supreme Court.
Mazie Hirono
The supreme satisfaction is to be able to despise one’s neighbor and this fact goes far to account for religious intolerance. It is evidently consoling to reflect that the people next door are headed for hell.
Aleister Crowley
If confirmed by the Senate to serve on the Supreme Court, I will keep an open mind in every case and always strive to preserve the Constitution of the United States and the American rule of law.
Brett Kavanaugh

Gilbert K. Chesterton
Supreme wasn’t meant to be a brand… It’s a good name, but it’s a difficult one to trademark.
James Jebbia
I’ve heard countless women – but not a single man – say to me, ‘I could never stand up before the Supreme Court; it would be way too stressful.’ But I’ve heard countless men, and very few women, say to me, ‘I would love to argue in front of the Court; that would be so exciting.’
Lisa Blatt
A home with a loving and loyal husband and wife is the supreme setting in which children can be reared in love and righteousness and in which the spiritual and physical needs of children can be met.
David A. Bednar
Oftentimes you’ll see pictures from fashion shows and all the models outside the show in their real clothes are wearing brands like Supreme.
James Jebbia
As the law minister, I had ensured that the government’s right to natural resources was protected. The result was evident. The honourable Supreme Court gave the landmark decision in RIL vs RNRL case that the government is the owner of all natural resources.
Veerappa Moily
The American people deserve to have a fully functioning Supreme Court.
Patrick Leahy
It’s time to review what damage the Supreme Court ruling in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission has done to our political system.
Bob Beckel
The Supreme Court must never be viewed as a partisan institution.
Brett Kavanaugh
Sometimes Supreme Court justices surprise you with their decisions – you think they’re going to vote one way, but they vote a different way, and I keep an open mind about that. But I think a moral compass is really important for a Supreme Court justice, as it is for any political appointee.
Sunny Hostin
I consider myself a spiritual atheist. I certainly believe there are forces bigger than ourselves, and that we should be searching, individually, for meaning in our lives. But I don’t believe there’s a supreme being, an intelligence that created everything.
Alan Lightman
In the Brown decision, the United States Supreme Court unanimously struck down the legal and moral footing of racially segregated public education in this country.
Bobby Scott
When the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the Affordable Care Act, Sarah Palin tweeted, ‘Obama lies; freedom dies.’ She’s referring, I guess, to the freedom to go without health care when you’re sick.
Richard Trumka
Over the course of 19 years on the Supreme Court, I learned some lessons about the Constitution of the United States.
David Souter
He has selected from a group of overwhelming candidates. This candidate was nominated to the Supreme Court because of his extremely overwhelming qualifications.
Rod Parsley
You must submit to supreme suffering in order to discover the completion of joy.

If you don’t believe this election is important, if you think you can sit it out, take a moment to think about the Supreme Court justices that Donald Trump would nominate and what that would mean to civil liberties, equal rights, and the future of our country.
Bernie Sanders
The Supreme Court has a very light backlog. They leave a lot of splits among the circuits, a lot of uncertainty. And I think they ought to work a lot harder.
Arlen Specter
We are not in the regime of Aurangzeb. We are in the regime of rule of law. When rule of law is concerned, it applies to government, it applies to Supreme Court, it applies to everybody.
Veerappa Moily
One of the reasons this election is so important is because the Supreme Court hangs in the balance. We need to overturn that terrible Supreme Court decision, Citizens United, and then reform our whole campaign finance system.
Hillary Clinton
If you look at the Constitution, the two clauses of the Constitution make it very clear the president shall nominate, and the Senate shall provide advice and consent. It’s been since 1888 that a Senate of a different party than the president in the White House confirmed a Supreme Court nominee.
Cory Gardner
Appellate advocacy, particularly at the Supreme Court, is really intimate. I mean, you’re just a few feet away from the Chief Justice. You know, if you’re sweating, they see you.

We are all agents of the same supreme power, the people.
Daniel Webster
The fairest and most democratic process in terms of Supreme Court nominees is let the American people have a voice.

John Henrik Clarke
I’m not really concerned if people have this purist view of the New York Supreme thing. If they think opening our shop in Paris is going to harm our brand, then we can’t really be that strong of a brand.
James Jebbia
I am still doing my due diligence. A vote on a Supreme Court nominee is a lifetime appointment and when the court decides, it is the law of the land.
Bob Menendez
Men are seldom more commonplace than on supreme occasions.
Samuel Butler
We are confident that the Supreme Court will soon see the direction that this country is headed and enshrine marriage as a constitutional right for all.
Benjamin Todd Jealous
In our system of government, the Supreme Court ultimately decides on the constitutionality of laws passed by Congress or of presidential actions. When their actions are challenged, both Congress and the president are entitled to have their positions forcefully advocated in court.
William Barr
The beauty of Rome is that you can wander into a pizzeria just about anywhere and get a real Italian pizza that’s thankfully worlds away from the Super Supreme I used to order at Pizza Hut as a kid.
Ed Stoppard
Truth is absolute, truth is supreme, truth is never disposable in national political life.
John Howard
The Supreme Court told me that I should have filed a complaint within six months of the company’s first decision to pay me less even though I didn’t know about it for nearly two decades.
Lilly Ledbetter
At least 80 percent of American prisoners are grossly over-sentenced. The Supreme Court knows this, but shows scant concern for this human side of criminal justice.
Conrad Black
As Ohio Solicitor General and in pro bono private practice, I defended Ohio’s hate crimes law. This included a brief in the Wisconsin v. Mitchell case where the U.S. Supreme Court upheld Wisconsin’s hate crime law that included sexual orientation. Ohio’s should include it as well, and we support it.
Richard Cordray
It is money, money, money! Not ideas, not principles, but money that reigns supreme in American politics.
Robert Byrd
The way that same-sex marriage should reach the federal level is that it absolutely should be decided by the Supreme Court as quickly as possible. It’s a 14th Amendment issue. There’s no argument about it.
Tony Kushner
By virtue of believing in a Supreme Being one embraces certain mysteries.
Robert Vaughn
My education was dominated by modernist thinkers and artists who taught me that the supreme imperative was courage to face the awful truth, to scorn the soft-minded optimism of religious and secular romantics as well as the corrupt optimism of governments, advertisers, and mechanistic or manipulative revolutionaries.
Ellen Willis
Having people that really reflect the spectrum of American experiences is important to have on the Supreme Court.
Cory Booker
Russian women are now interested in clothes. But they will never attach supreme importance to fashions as do Europeans and American women, because they are too vitally interested in all the various projects going on in their country.
Elsa Schiaparelli
The Supreme Court has ruled that they cannot have a nativity scene in Washington, D.C. This wasn’t for any religious reasons. They couldn’t find three wise men and a virgin.
Jay Leno
Presidents and speakers for over 100 years had tried to pass affordable care for all Americans. It was challenged over and over. The Supreme Court declared it constitutional.
Nancy Pelosi
Those in supreme power always suspect and hate their next heir.
Tacitus
So was it a political mistake for Obama to put so many eggs in the health-care-reform basket? Well, a negative decision from the Supreme Court will certainly make it appear so.
Eric Alterman
I had a chance to go on the Supreme Court of the United States, and my whole family was more disappointed in my deciding not to do that than in my deciding not to run for president – much more.
Mario Cuomo
Susan Collins’ vote to put Brett Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court may be paying off for her, but it’s put women’s control over their own health care decisions in extreme jeopardy.
Sara Gideon
My gut tells me that the Supreme Court will rule the subsidies to be illegal, and therefore, Obamacare will fail.
Bill Flores
I have never pretended to be a legal scholar, but when scores of lawyers are lining up to agree with the Supreme Court that the president has the power to make choices when it comes to whom to deport and whom to let stay, then I tend to agree with them.
Luis Gutierrez
A supreme pragmatist, Kissinger was never interested in the art of the impossible – and nor, as a biographer, am I. That is why, having initially been invited to write his entire official biography, I eventually decided to devote myself to writing just one year in his life: 1973.
Alistair Horne
It is a law woven into the nature of man, attested by history, by science, by literature and art, and by dally experience, that strength of mind and force of character are the supreme rulers of human affairs.
Lucius Quintus Cincinnatus Lamar II
I use M.A.C. Brow Gel to bring out my eyebrows, then I curl my eyelashes every morning and apply M.A.C. Sheen Supreme Lipstick in Venomous Violet with my fingers – I use it as a lip balm multiple times throughout the day because I hate having bare lips.
Jeanne Damas
Meditation is painful in the beginning but it bestows immortal Bliss and supreme joy in the end.
Swami Sivananda
The Obama administration contends that starting a for-profit business means leaving religious liberty behind. The administration has effectively told the Supreme Court that for-profit companies have no right to act on moral convictions the government opposes. They are about profits. That position is deeply mistaken.
Josh Hawley
It is absurd to suggest a president whose party controls the Senate should jointly decline to fill a vacant Supreme Court seat – ever.
Tom Fitton
Whenever you put a man on the Supreme Court he ceases to be your friend.
Harry S Truman
Most of the stuff I try in a game, in the moment, I have supreme confidence I’m going to execute it.
Stephen Curry
I, for one, want to see Mr. Cruz as a Supreme Court appointee.
Darryl Glenn
For the Supreme Court, the right for everyone to say ‘I do’ is where the story ends, but for artists, it’s where the story just starts to get interesting.
Stacey D’Erasmo
Finally, a good prosecutor knows that her job is to enforce the law without fear or favor. Likewise, a Supreme Court Justice must interpret the laws without fear or favor.
Amy Klobuchar
Judith Jamison is, like, supreme.
Susan Kelechi Watson
Just as the Supreme Court has said that women have the right to choose whether or not to be parents, men should also have that right.
Karen DeCrow
The Democrats’ drive to defeat Neil Gorsuch is the latest battle in a 50-year war for control of the Supreme Court – a war that began with a conspiracy against Richard Nixon by Chief Justice Earl Warren, Justice Abe Fortas and Lyndon Johnson.
Pat Buchanan
The Senate has a constitutional responsibility to fill vacancies on the Supreme Court, and I take that responsibility very seriously.
Bill Nelson
Millions upon millions of secret spending by the fossil fuel industry that was unleashed by the disastrous 2010 Citizens United Supreme Court decision – this money not only fuels the campaigns of many candidates; it also represents a threat to those who don’t toe the polluter line on climate change.
Sheldon Whitehouse
We need to consider nominations as thoroughly and carefully as the American people deserve. No one is entitled to a free pass to a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court.
Patrick Leahy
There is one God – supreme among gods and men – who is like mortals in neither body nor mind.
Xenophanes
States used to protect consumers from predatory lenders, but strong state usury laws were obliterated by a 1978 U.S. Supreme Court decision.
Bernie Sanders
This is the most historic moment in Supreme Court history in our lifetime, no question about it. These are justices who are going to serve for decades.
Jay Alan Sekulow
It’s terribly important that we extend the promise of equality that the Supreme Court and that the district court articulated in the DOMA case and in the Perry case to all Americans in all 50 states.
David Boies
We have no prejudiced stand, nor are we aggressive on the Sabarimala issue. The government is duty-bound to implement the Supreme Court order.
Pinarayi Vijayan
The Constitution and the laws are supreme and the Union indissoluble.
Andrew Jackson
The country is yearning for a change. I’d rather take my chances on somebody new, particularly with regard to the Supreme Court.
Mitch McConnell
To be here in America so soon after the Supreme Court ruling on gay marriage and at the birth of the Caitlyn phenomena feels so timely. It feels perfect for my universe to collide with Caitlyn’s, but on a purely personal level, I just think she is utterly fabulous and brave.
Boy George
The felonious five in their Supreme Court decision never said Gore did anything improperly in Florida.
Vincent Bugliosi
The Founding Fathers provided a way to reverse unpopular Supreme Court decisions: a constitutional amendment.
Max Baucus
All my life, I’ve had a strong belief that I want to judge myself and others on their contribution, not their sex. I don’t think much of it when employers want applause for hiring women or minorities. Whether for the Supreme Court or McDonald’s, if you hire the best person, you’ll have a diverse workplace.
Martha MacCallum
The supreme irony of life is that hardly anyone gets out of it alive.
Robert A. Heinlein
Supreme Court justices should not be an extension of the Republican Party.
Dianne Feinstein
It is a president’s constitutional right to nominate a Supreme Court justice, and it is the Senate’s constitutional right to act as a check on a president and withhold its consent.
Mitch McConnell
To fight and conquer in all our battles is not supreme excellence; supreme excellence consists in breaking the enemy’s resistance without fighting.
Sun Tzu
When the body of the people is possessed of the supreme power, it is called a democracy.
Montesquieu
The Supreme Court has held that code is speech. And it doesn’t matter that it’s done on a computer or done face to face or done in a newspaper, reporting the facts of the world is protected speech.
Jimmy Wales
My true friends have always given me that supreme proof of devotion, a spontaneous aversion for the man I loved.
Sidonie Gabrielle Colette
Separation of power says the judiciary committee is supposed to confirm qualified judges and then what the Supreme Court does, that is their function, not my function.
Arlen Specter
The kind of corruption the media talk about, the kind the Supreme Court was concerned about, involves the putative sale of votes in exchange for campaign contributions.
James L. Buckley
The Supreme Court is not the impetus for constitutional change – we are.
Lisa Blatt
Nature shows that with the growth of intelligence comes increased capacity for pain, and it is only with the highest degree of intelligence that suffering reaches its supreme point.
Arthur Schopenhauer
The Supreme Court should follow settled precedent and allow states like New York to manage our own labor relations to achieve labor peace and government efficiency and to continue our long tradition of support for workers.
Eric Schneiderman
What five members of the Supreme Court say the law is may be something vastly different from what Congress intended the law to be.
Benjamin Franklin Fairless
What I wanted was for everyone listening to understand that these things mattered – not necessarily for me, but in this particular forum they mattered in terms of whether of not we were getting a person who should sit on the Supreme Court.
Anita Hill
The core of all religions is a belief in a supreme personal god.
Frank Tipler
Last Thursday, our Supreme Court backed that local governments can co-opt private property, and give it to another private entity, for economic development.
Cliff Stearns
I have never had a better working experience than ‘St. Elsewhere.’ It’s a supreme show.
Norman Lloyd
A Supreme Court ruling is supposed to provide clarity to contentious legal issues, but in the case of reproductive rights, it was just the beginning of a long, heated, and grueling debate.
Mike Quigley
The nation will be shaped for decades by decisions that are made by President Bush and the Senate about the future of the Supreme Court.
Ralph G. Neas
I will continue to be at the forefront, participating in rallies, marches, letter-writing campaigns, and fighting for federal funding for Planned Parenthood. And, I will always oppose the nomination of any anti-choice U.S. Supreme Court Justice.
Deb Haaland
The Frist fairness rule guarantees up-or-down votes for every circuit court or Supreme Court nomination, regardless of which party controls the Senate or the White House.
Mitch McConnell
Listen to John Coltrane. When he plays ‘A Love Supreme,’ that guy is totally into himself.
Butch Trucks
It becomes us in humility to make our devout acknowledgments to the Supreme Ruler of the Universe for the inestimable civil and religious blessings with which we are favored.
James K. Polk
Back in the 1980s, when I was a lowly editorial assistant by day and trying to be a novelist by night, no god reigned so supreme as the god of literary prose.
Jean Hanff Korelitz
It was the courts, of course, that took away prayer from our schools, that took away Bible reading from our schools. It’s the courts that gave us same-sex marriage. So it is quite a battlefield, and the Supreme Court is the highest court in the land.
Rod Parsley
No person who denies the existence of a supreme being shall hold any office under this Constitution.
Michael Newdow
Anytime a member of Congress wants to travel abroad – which we do from time to time as part of our official duties – we are required to check with the House Committee on Ethics as to whether the trip follows the ethics rules by which federally elected officials are bound. Not so with Supreme Court justices.
Mike Quigley
The unique and supreme voluptuousness of love lies in the certainty of committing evil. And men and women know from birth that in evil is found all sensual delight.
Charles Baudelaire
The sun is the supreme life source and I receive all my good vibrations from it.
Rahul Dev
What happens when there is a conflict between the Scottish parliament, if it was established, and the Westminster parliament? Who is supreme?
John Major
I actually had the opportunity to stand at the lectern in the Supreme Court and face the justices, which was really a powerful thing for me.
Laurence Fishburne
I have ventured to write more intimately about my personal life than is customary for a member of the Supreme Court, and with that candor comes a measure of vulnerability.
Sonia Sotomayor
I think you can applaud President Trump’s efforts on health care if that’s where you lie. I think you can applaud his naming of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, but I think when he does something like make a veiled threat against the former FBI Director… I think people expect for leaders to step up and condemn that.
Ana Navarro
If corporations are people, as the Supreme Court wishes us to believe, they are stunningly unpatriotic ones.
Timothy Noah
Let my skin and sinews and bones dry up, together with all the flesh and blood of my body! I welcome it! But I will not move from this spot until I have attained the supreme and final wisdom.
Buddha
I believe Judge Kavanaugh is a well-qualified conservative jurist, and I commend President Trump for his commitment to naming Supreme Court justices who are committed to the rule of law.
Cindy Hyde-Smith
Members of the Supreme Court have lifetime tenures because they’re not supposed to do politics.
Ben Sasse
Rhyme, that enslaved queen, that supreme charm of our poetry, that creator of our meter.
Victor Hugo
The universal medicine for the Soul is the Supreme Reason and Absolute Justice; for the mind, mathematical and practical Truth; for the body, the Quintessence, a combination of light and gold.
Albert Pike
In America, the Supreme Court and the American people believe no one is above the law.
Jeff Sessions
Citizens United fought to defend our right to free speech – and won a great victory in the United States Supreme Court.
Marsha Blackburn
There is no fulfillment in things whatsoever. And I think one of the reasons that depression reigns supreme amongst the rich and famous is some of them thought that maybe those things would bring them happiness. But what, in fact, does is having a cause, having a passion. And that’s really what gives life’s true meaning.
Ben Carson
If you don’t create a sense of order and stability, if people do not feel secure, then progressive politics is dead. That is a fact of history. The right has always emerged supreme when destabilisation and insecurity prevail.
David Blunkett
God is of no importance unless He is of supreme importance.
Abraham Joshua Heschel
It would be unthinkable in Canadian public life today for the public inauguration of our supreme political figures to be accompanied by prayer.
Stockwell Day
Over the years, the judiciary has expanded its own powers by creative interpretations of the Constitution, particularly Article 21 which guarantees the right to life. This has been interpreted by the Supreme Court to include the right to a healthy environment, to health, primary education, livelihood and shelter.
Prashant Bhushan
For me, there can be no higher public service than serving as a member of the U.S. Supreme Court.
Merrick Garland
Voting on a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court is one of the most important duties of a U.S. Senator.
Cindy Hyde-Smith
As far as I’m concerned, if there is a supreme being then He chose organic evolution as a way of bringing into existence the natural world… which doesn’t seem to me to be necessarily blasphemous at all.
David Attenborough
Hillary Clinton will nominate justices to the Supreme Court who are prepared to overturn Citizens United!
Bernie Sanders
What matters to the evangelical community is Supreme Court justices, economy, religious liberty, Israel, lower courts, human trafficking and abortion.
Paula White
All club owners are vermin. So I was Vermin Supreme with my Fabulous Galaxy Lounge.
Vermin Supreme
It is inexplicable as to why the Chief Justice or other judges of the Supreme Court are unwilling to disclose their assets, particularly when they had themselves directed even candidates contesting elections to publicly declare their assets.
Prashant Bhushan
While Congress can’t overturn the Supreme Court, we can provide carrots and sticks to prevent local governments from unfairly taking property from landowners.
Stephanie Herseth
Justified or not, the Supreme Court has a kind of sacred status in American life. For whatever reason, Presidents can safely run against Congress, and vice versa, but I think there is an inherent popular aversion to assaults on the court itself. Perhaps it has to do with an instinctive belief that life needs umpires.
Jon Meacham
I was interested in law and wanted to be a Supreme Court judge. We see so many pending cases in India and people are not getting justice.
Nikki Tamboli
It is a mistake to suppose that the Supreme Court is either honoured or helped by being spoken of as beyond criticism. On the contrary, the life and character of its justices should be the objects of constant watchfulness by all, and its judgments subject to the freest criticism.
David Josiah Brewer
Judicial Watch has taken the lead nationwide in defending state voter ID laws and other commonsense election integrity measures, filing amicus briefs in the Supreme Court and in several circuit courts of appeal and trial courts.
Tom Fitton
I realize the voters elected President Obama in 2012, but they also, in 2014, elected enough Republican senators to gain a majority in the Senate, so we control the confirmation process. And these are two supposedly coequal branches of government involved in this filling of a Supreme Court vacancy.
Ron Johnson
What is the essence of theosophy? It is the fact that man, being himself divine, can know the divinity whose life he shares. As an inevitable corollary to this supreme truth comes the fact of the brotherhood of man.
Annie Besant
That’s not how national security works… I don’t care what the Supreme Court said 30 years ago or what some judge said 15 minutes ago. This is America, and our government is collecting way too damn much data on we the private citizens!
Mark Levin
Trump knows where his strengths exist, and he is emphatically in favor of doubling down on them. This goes far beyond appointing Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.
Ben Domenech
The supreme quality for leadership is unquestionably integrity. Without it, no real success is possible, no matter whether it is on a section gang, a football field, in an army, or in an office.
Dwight D. Eisenhower
We just want to grow at a reasonable pace. Supreme hasn’t changed for 20 years, and that feels very simple to me.
James Jebbia
I began my legal career working for Byron White, the last Coloradan to serve on the Supreme Court, and the only justice to lead the N.F.L. in rushing. He was one of the smartest and most courageous men I’ve ever known.
Neil Gorsuch
The Supreme Court has in place a legal structure which protects abortion rights in this country, and something has got to be done to change that before we can put in place truly meaningful protection for the unborn.
Charles T. Canady
When you pollute a river, it’s a supreme injustice to those who are downstream and those who live in the river who are not human beings.
Paul Hawken
The supreme good of life is vitality. And vitality is always seeping away.
Roberto Unger
The constitution ought to specifically state that every nation is left entirely independent and supreme in its internal affairs, such as regulating emigration and all other similar matters.
George William Norris
Just several years ago, Shaykh Kabbani, who is the head of the Islamic Supreme Council of America, when he was speaking at the State Department, said that more than 80 percent of the mosques were controlled by extremists. And from all I’ve seen over the last four or five years, the situation has even gotten worse.
Peter T. King
I didn’t quite agree with the Supreme Court ruling that forced civic clubs to take women.
Anita Bryant
You do the best you can, looking at precedent, in trying to anticipate where the Supreme Court is going to draw the balance between the protection of civil liberties and protecting the national security, and in some cases, we guessed wrong.
Alberto Gonzales
The supreme need of the world is peace and good will among men. It must be peace founded upon justice and fairness, the righting of past wrong, and the securing of the future as far as possible against the evils of the past.
Charles M. Schwab
And, indeed, though they differ concerning other things, yet all agree in this: that they think there is one Supreme Being that made and governs the world, whom they call, in the language of their country, Mithras.
Thomas More
I know people love Supreme. I never got on the wagon.
Eric Nam
The turning point for me was when the Supreme Court installed Bush in 2000, even though he got half a million votes less nationally than Gore. It was nothing more than a bloodless coup and that’s when I really started paying attention.
Mark Edwards
After the Democrats shoved the 2700 pages of ObamaCare down our throats – and we did find out how expensive, controlling, and coercive the legislation was – a majority of Americans wanted the Supreme Court to toss it aside as unconstitutional.
Bob Beauprez
Once the Supreme Court in 1973 decided that infanticide could be legal, it not only ended America’s ‘inalienable right to life,’ it threw the Golden Rule right off the shores of this continent.
Michael Moriarty
In 1979, the Supreme Court ruled 5-3 in Smith v. Maryland that a few days’ worth of phone records for a single individual were not protected by the Fourth Amendment. The NSA today, though, collects hundreds of millions of phone records from hundreds of millions of Americans without an individualized warrant.
Rand Paul
A man is born alone and dies alone; and he experiences the good and bad consequences of his karma alone; and he goes alone to hell or the Supreme abode.
Chanakya
Of the judicial department of the Government, the Supreme Court is the head and representative, and to it must come for final decision all the great legal questions which may arise under the Constitution, the laws, or the treaties of the United States.
Samuel Freeman Miller
In a democracy the poor will have more power than the rich, because there are more of them, and the will of the majority is supreme.
Aristotle
In spring, the dead trees, roots, and animals come to life again exactly as they were, thus providing hundreds of thousands of examples, specimens, and proofs of the supreme resurrection.
Said Nursi
I will be vigilant to protect the independence and integrity of the Supreme Court, and I will work to ensure that it upholds the rule of law and safeguards those liberties that make this land one of endless possibilities for all Americans.
John Roberts
Internal self-government under a local constitution was authorized by Congress and approved by the residents in 1952, but federal law is supreme in Puerto Rico and residents do not have voting representation in the Congress.
Dick Thornburgh
The moment is supreme.
Franz Schubert
Even when it comes to zippers and buttons, Italy reigns supreme. The luxury market is ours, as demonstrated by the voracity with which various foreign conglomerates are buying up the jewels of our manufacturing sector.
Lapo Elkann
Imagination, the supreme delight of the immortal and the immature, should be limited. In order to enjoy life, we should not enjoy it too much.
Vladimir Nabokov
It was hard to imagine a little boy who looked like me could someday help a president confirm a Supreme Court justice, or even run for attorney general. But here we are.
Daniel Cameron
No one supposes that the government of the United States is supreme, beyond the sphere plainly defined by the constitution: Neither does any one deny that the State is supreme within its proper sphere of action.
James L. Petigru
Have we so soon forgotten those four years of terrible carnage, the greatest war of all time; forgotten the millions of men who gave their lives, who made the supreme sacrifice and who today, beneath the soil of France and Belgium, sleep the eternal sleep?
Frank B. Kellogg
Love is supreme and unconditional; like is nice but limited.
Duke Ellington
A decision by the Supreme Court to subject Guantanamo to judicial review would eliminate these advantages.
John Yoo
The government of the Union, though limited in its powers, is supreme within its sphere of action, and its laws, when made in pursuance of the constitution, form the supreme law of the land.
John Marshall
Music reigns supreme. It does not need a visual prop. While listening to a number, do you enjoy the tune, or do you enjoy it because you imagine someone singing it? In fact, quite a few hits of mine are from films that no one has heard about. The songs still rule, though.
Ilaiyaraaja
Republicans stalled Merrick Garland’s nomination to the Supreme Court because they could, and 136 years of American history recommended it as politically advantageous.
Michael J. Knowles
When you have incidences like the Trayvon Martin verdict, the erosion of certain fundamental rights like voting, it just reminds us that we’re always one Supreme Court justice vote away from losing the progress that has been made.
Terri Sewell
For man, as for flower and beast and bird, the supreme triumph is to be most vividly, most perfectly alive.
D. H. Lawrence
Got good news and bad news for you, Mr. President. The good news is that Chief Justice John Roberts just saved your legacy and, perhaps, your presidency by writing for the Supreme Court majority to rule health care reform constitutional.
Ron Fournier
I can tell you that too much money is corrupting American politics. Don’t blame the American public. The U.S. Supreme Court has a lot to answer for, because it has made it impossible for Congress to reduce the corrupting influence of money on American political life.
Peter Singer
You wouldn’t run for the United States Senate or for governor or for anything else without answering people’s questions about what you believe. And I think the Supreme Court is no different.
Evan Bayh
It is the prayer of my innermost being to realize my supreme identity in the liberated play of consciousness, the Vast Expanse. Now is the moment, Here is the place of Liberation.
Alex Grey
This idea of the transcendent power of the Supreme Being is essentially connected with that by which the whole duty of man is summed up: obedience to His will.
John Quincy Adams
As I have said before, that Federal Penal Code could never have been enacted into law if we had had a responsible press who was willing to tell the American people the truth about what it actually provides. Nor would we have had a bill had it not been for the United States Supreme Court.
George Wallace
You’re not free until you’ve been made captive by supreme belief.
Marianne Moore
I never pursued anything but acting. But as a kid, I was really interested in the Supreme Court. I wanted to to be a Supreme Court justice, but didn’t want to be a lawyer. I just wanted to go straight to being a justice.
Gillian Jacobs
How does a pansy, for example, select the ingredients from soil to get the right colors for the flower? Now there’s a great miracle. I think there’s a supreme power behind all of this. I see it in nature.
Clyde Tombaugh
The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice.
Mitch McConnell
The very purpose of the Bill of Rights and the Constitution is to protect minority rights against majority voters. Every court decision that strikes down discriminatory legislation, including past Supreme Court decisions, affirming the fundamental rights to marry the person you love, overrules a majority decision.
David Boies
You don’t even have to be a lawyer to be on the Supreme Court, which I think is hilarious.
Shannon Bream
District of Columbia v. Heller, which recognized an individual right to possess a firearm under the Constitution, is unquestionably the most clearly incorrect decision that the Supreme Court announced during my tenure on the bench.
John Paul Stevens
In ‘Citizens United v. FEC’, the Supreme Court ruled that sections of the federal campaign finance law known as McCain-Feingold imposed unconstitutional restrictions on the First Amendment rights of corporations.
Eric Schneiderman
The supreme accomplishment is to blur the line between work and play.
Arnold J. Toynbee
It is the artist who realizes that there is a supreme force above him and works gladly away as a small apprentice under God’s heaven.
Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
Whatever your partisan affiliation, it is worth considering the overarching constitutional principles involved in any given Supreme Court precedent.
Kayleigh McEnany
I got the chance to argue my first case in Supreme Court, a criminal case arising in Alabama that involved the right of a defendant to counsel at a critical stage in a capital case before a trial.
Constance Baker Motley
There still is a war on women in terms of politicians in Washington and the state legislatures trying to eliminate any rights we have fought to win and that the Supreme Court has afforded us.
Gloria Allred
My Democratic colleagues should not forget that President Obama’s Supreme Court nominees Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan were both given up or down votes by Republicans.
Thom Tillis
In my first week as a U.S. senator, I had the privilege of participating in the Supreme Court confirmation hearing for Judge Sonia Sotomayor.
Al Franken
Old age is the supreme evil, for it deprives man of all pleasures while allowing his appetites to remain, and it brings with it every possible sorrow. Yet men fear death and desire old age.
Giacomo Leopardi
Catholicism is a wide tent in terms of political and legal positions. We could have nine Catholics on the Supreme Court and a great deal of diversity toward the law.
Cass Sunstein
I have strong differences with Mr. Trump on a woman’s right to choose and what kind of justices belong on the Supreme Court.
Raja Krishnamoorthi
We want to bear witness today that we know the relation between corporate greed and what goes on too often in the Supreme Court decisions.
Cornel West
Obama’s openness is a welcome change from his predecessor, who went all the way to the Supreme Court to hide the RSVP list for a single policy meeting. And transparency is intrinsically good, since in a democracy, very little government activity is legitimately secret.
Ari Melber
Judges decide upon copyright law. They decide upon trademark law. They decide upon scientific issues. They decide upon very complex technical issues on a daily basis. So you must have confidence in the Supreme Court, that they will apply their mind and they will come out with a decision consistent with the Constitution.
Kapil Sibal
To the rest of us the supreme vindication of the scholar’s view lies in their invincible allegiance to the Jewish heritage – a steadfastness that has been matched only by that of their rescuers.
Henrietta Szold
In the Pentagon Papers case, the government asserted in the Supreme Court that the publication of the material was a threat to national security. It turned out it was not a threat to U.S. security. But even if it had been, that doesn’t mean that it couldn’t be published.
Alan Dershowitz
In a democracy, people are supreme.
Arvind Kejriwal
