Elena Kagan Quotes and Sayings
Quotes by Elena Kagan

I hope you like these Elena Kagan quotes from my collection of quotes about life.

I don't believe in looking back.
What I am proudest of? Working really hard...
and achieving as much as I could.
- Elena Kagan

If I am confirmed, I will commit to show Heller and
the principles articulated in it the full measure of
respect that is due to all constitution decisions of the court.
- Elena Kagan

The Supreme Court, of course, has the responsibility
of ensuring that our government never oversteps its
proper bounds or violates the rights of individuals.
But the Court must also recognize the limits on itself
and respect the choices made by the American people.
- Elena Kagan

It was a very cool thing to be a smart girl,
as opposed to some other, different kind.
And I think that made a great deal of difference to
me growing up and in my life afterward.
- Elena Kagan

 

And what my constitutional values are are wholly irrelevant to the job,
and so neither you nor anyone else will know what they are.
- Elena Kagan

It's not that there are no masters, but that there are many.
And the job of the solicitor general is to balance
those masters and to accommodate them all,
each in their proper places, wisely and well and in
so doing to represent the people of the United States.
- Elena Kagan

I think that if there are positions that you can't argue...
then the responsibility is probably to resign.
If one's own conscience is opposed to the requirements
and responsibilities of the job,
then it's time to leave the job.

raises serious constitutional questions.

In fact, corporate and union moneys go overwhelmingly to incumbents,
so limiting that money, as Congress did in the campaign finance law,
may be the single most self-denying thing that Congress has ever done.

discussion of legal issues,
the confirmation process takes on an air of vacuity and farce,
and the Senate becomes incapable of either properly
evaluating nominees or appropriately educating the public.
- Elena Kagan

I owe a debt of gratitude to two other living Justices.
Sandra Day O'Connor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg paved the
way for me and so many other women in my generation.
Their pioneering lives have created boundless possibilities for women in the law.
I thank them for their inspiration and also for the
personal kindnesses they have shown me.
- Elena Kagan

To have the opportunity to lead the Solicitor General's
office is the honor of a lifetime.
As you know, this is an office with a long and rich tradition,
not only of extraordinary legal skill but also of extraordinary
professionalism and integrity.
That is due, in large measure, to the people who have led it.
- Elena Kagan

I've led a school whose faculty and students examine
and discuss and debate every aspect of our law and legal system.
And what I've learned most is that no one has a monopoly on truth or wisdom.
I've learned that we make progress by listening to each other,
across every apparent political or ideological divide.
- Elena Kagan

Everyone is a prisoner of his own experiences.
No one can eliminate prejudices -
just recognize them.

and is not intent on arriving.

I believe that everything happens for a reason.
People change so that you can learn to let go,
things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right,
you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself,
and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.
- Marilyn Monroe PHOTO

to receiving whatever life throws at us -
with Gratitude. Have NO Expectations of life.
