7 Ruth Bader Ginsburg Quotes To Celebrate 82 Notorious Years

Ruth Bader Ginsburg has had quite a year. Legal junkies and feminist disciples alike have long admired the Justice's badassery since she took her seat in the court in 1993. But it was her scathing dissent of the Supreme Court's decision to allow private businesses to refuse certain forms of birth control coverage to their employees that launched her OG status into public consciousness. From the only slightly ironic Notorious R.G.B. meme to musical remixes of her dissents, pop culture reverence of the Supreme Court veteran seems here to stay.



Ginsburg turns 82 on March 15. In response to the question of whether she has considered stepping down, she has said: "As long as I can do the job full steam. I think I'll recognize when the time comes that I can't any longer. But now I can." In other words, she's literally too legit to quit.



On R.B.G.'s birthday, we honor her 21 years on the Supreme Court and 82 years of general badassery with just a few notable quotes showing just how bright that candlepower burns.
