BRING OUT THE BEST IN YOUR ABILITY: September 22, 2020

“You can disagree without being disagreeable.” Ruth Bader Ginsburg

In 2015, Ruth Bader Ginsburg said she wanted to be remembered as “someone who used whatever talent she had to do her work to the very best of her ability, and to help repair tears in society.”  Because she brought out the best in her ability, she helped repair the greatness in all of us and showed us the visionary landscape of the greater things to come – formed and shaped through justice. 

Even after her transition, some say, like in life, the notorious RBG is lodestar, an unwavering in commitment to the idea of truth and justice.

Let us take a moment and breathe in the good medicine of her life and know that in the invisible ethers of eternity she has made her way – not to rob us prematurely but to teach us the grace of giving no matter what the circumstances.

“My mother was very strong about my doing well in school and living up to my potential. Two things were important to her and she repeated them endlessly. One was to ‘be a lady,’ and that meant conduct yourself civilly, don’t let emotions like anger or envy get in your way. And the other was to be independent, which was an unusual message for mothers of that time to be giving their daughters.”

JUSTICE RUTH BADER GINSBURG

“We should not be held back from pursuing our full talents, from contributing what we could contribute to the society, because we fit into a certain mould ― because we belong to a group that historically has been the object of discrimination.”

JUSTICE RUTH BADER GINSBURG

“I’m a very strong believer in listening and learning from others.”

JUSTICE RUTH BADER GINSBURG
