Published on February 14, 2016


Is Obama going to be a good radical leftist and nominate someone to carry out his mission?

Here are ten of Justice Scalia’s best quotes via Breitbart:

Speaking to college graduates:

“Never compromise your principles, unless of course your principles are Adolf Hitler’s, in which case you would be well advised to compromise them as much as you can.” – Justice Scalia

“Indeed, follow your star if you want to head north and it’s the North Star. But if you want to head north and it’s Mars, you had better follow somebody else’s star.” – Justice Scalia

On following your conscience:

“More important than your obligation to follow your conscience, or at least prior to it, is your obligation to form your conscience correctly.”  – Justice Scalia 

“Sometimes people come up to me and inquire, ‘Justice Scalia, when did you first become an originalist?’ As though it’s some weird affliction, you know, ‘When did you start eating human flesh?’” – Justice Scalia 

On the game of soccer:

“If it were impossible for individual human beings (or groups of human beings) to act autonomously in effective pursuit of a common goal, the game of soccer would not exist.” –  Justice Scalia

On the lack of a Constitutional right to abortion:

“You think there ought to be a right to abortion? No problem. The Constitution says nothing about it. Create it the way most rights are created in a democratic society. Pass a law. And that law, unlike a Constitutional right to abortion created by a court can compromise.” – Justice Scalia

On the Constitution being a tool for change:

“A Constitution is not meant to facilitate change. It is meant to impede change, to make it difficult to change.” – Justice Scalia 

On disagreeing with people:

“I respect the people who have them, but I think those views are just flat out wrong,” –Justice Scalia

On his combative arguments in the Supreme Court:

“I attack ideas. I don’t attack people. And some very good people have some very bad ideas. And if you can’t separate the two, you gotta get another day job.”- Justice Scalia

On the F-word being used in modern television:

“I occasionally watch movies or television shows in which the f-word is used constantly, not by the criminal class but by supposedly elegant, well-educated, well-to-do people. The society I move in doesn’t behave that way. Who imagines this? – Justice Scalia 

On arguing:

“I love to argue. I’ve always loved to argue. And I love to point out the weaknesses of the opposing arguments. It may well be that I’m something of a shin kicker. It may well be that I’m something of a contrarian.” – Justice Scalia
