Ruth Bader Ginsburg: A Woman of Substance*

You can disagree without being disagreeable.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg

You can’t have it all, all at once. Who – man or woman – has it all, all at once? Over my lifespan, I think I have had it all. But in different periods of time, things were rough. And if you have a caring life partner, you help the other person when that person needs it.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg

    I’m still heartbroken by her passing. Her work had such real meaning for so many people’s lives. – Marty

    Our country can learn so much from the relationship she and Antonin Scalia shared. Despite their disagreements, they didn’t let it affect their close friendship. I’m at peace knowing they are together again enjoying their mutual love of the opera.

      Jill, that image has me smiling…she always wanted to be a diva (something I read a while back)!
