Leaders of the Church have often been Narcissus, flattered and sickeningly excited by their courtiers. The court is the leprosy of the papacy.
One has to accept pain as a condition of existence. One has to court doubt and darkness as the cost of knowing. One needs a will stubborn in conflict, but apt always to the total acceptance of every consequence of living and dying.
The court is like a palace of marble; it's composed of people very hard and very polished.
Jean de la Bruyere

When a nominee for the Supreme Court, one of only nine lifetime appointments, makes an overtly brazen racist comment about tens of millions of American citizens, we don't need lectures. What we need to do is to confront her with what she said and what it says about her.
Every night on the court I give my all, and if I'm not giving 100 percent, I criticize myself.
Just because a couple people on the Supreme Court declare something to be 'constitutional' does not make it so.
There is no such thing as justice - in or out of court.
Men naturally despise those who court them, but respect those who do not give way to them.
The first time I stepped on an NBA court I became a businessman.
Now that the Court has declared money to be speech, I say we replace the current Court with some Ben Franklins, Thomas Jeffersons, George Washingtons, a couple of Susan B. Anthony's, Roosevelts, Hamiltons, a Sacajawea or two, and an Abe Lincoln to cover Scalia in full.

Alphonse de Lamartine
I think that one of the most fundamental responsibilities is to give testimony in a court of law, to give it honestly and willingly.
Adlai E. Stevenson
I like to get out and get up the court, using my speed and aggressiveness toward the hoop.
One day, the dance charts will be the biggest chart in the music world. Because we all need to dance. This planet will be a fun planet when the judges in court will end the day with a dance!
We should not have drug laws or a court system that disproportionately punishes the black community.
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.

Magic is crazy. He is that crazy wild guy on the basketball court that is very intense and very serious. He is the guy who lives and eats and breathes basketball.
All of the legal defense funds out there, they're looking for people out there with court of appeals experience, because court of appeals is where policy is made. And I know, I know this is on tape and I should never say that because we don't make law, I know. I know.
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.

An appeal is when you ask one court to show it's contempt for another court.
Finley Peter Dunne
People see me high-fivin' and smiling on the court, and they don't think that's me. But it is. I just want to go out and be myself.
