1
Enid Bagnold
Judges don't age; time decorates them.
2
Yochai Benkler
Judges wear legal professionalism and precedent as a mantel that secures legitimacy for their decisions. It's how they distinguish themselves from politicians or administrative agencies, while wielding power that is sometimes much greater than those democratically accountable actors.
3
Stephen Breyer
Judges are appointed often through the political process.
4
Warren E. Burger
Judges rule on the basis of law, not public opinion, and they should be totally indifferent to pressures of the times.

Benjamin N. Cardozo
There is in each of us a stream of tendency, whether you choose to call it philosophy or not, which gives coherence and direction to thought and action. Judges cannot escape that current any more than other mortals.
6
John Conyers
Violence against Judges and threats of violence against Judges is on the rise and it is no laughing matter. When leaders attempt to rationalize this violence, it only makes the problem worse.
7
Samuel Dash
While teaching, I also worked undercover in the lower courts by saying I was a young law teacher wanting experience in criminal law. The Judges were happy to assist me but what I learned was how corrupt the lower courts were. Judges were accepting money right in the courtroom.
8
Stockwell Day
Judges must be free from political intervention or intimidation.
9
Alan Dershowitz
