Ruth Bader Ginsburg quotes: the jurist gets jiggy.
“Fight for the things that you care about but do it in a way that will lead others to join you. My mother told to be a lady. And for her, that meant be your own person. Be independent.”
“So often in life, things that you regard as an impediment turn out to be great good fortune.”

“How you climb a mountain is more important than reaching the top.”
“If you focus on the process of climbing, you’ll end up on the summit.”

“A master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between his work and his play; his labor and his leisure; his mind and his body; his education and his recreation. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence through whatever he is doing, and leaves others to determine whether he is working or playing. To himself, he always appears to be doing both.”

“Once you took the first step, anything was possible.”

Barry Sanders quotes: love how humble this dude is—even if he did use to run all over my Bears.
“Too often we are scared. Scared of what we might not be able to do. Scared of what people might think if we tried. We let fears stand in the way of our hopes. We say no when we want to say yes. We sit quietly when we want to scream. And we shout with the others, when we should keep our mouths shut. Why? After all, we do only go around once. There’s really no time to be afraid. Just do it.”
“Don’t be scared to make mistakes. In life you’re going to make some mistakes. Even if you wanted to stay in bed all day and avoid the whole world, that’s not the answer. You’re going to make some mistakes.”

Here is what he had to say about this preeminent business. That it’s:

“If it feels right in your gut, this is who you are, this is what you do, this is what you feel, then don’t hide that. You just stick to it and the world will catch up.”
“Remember this: you are the benchmark of your success – you define it. Don’t let anyone else define it because if you do, you will fail. Appreciate those who support you and challenge those who don’t.”
