At UMN, Sotomayor shares her inspirations, irritations

If the system is broken, my inclination is to fix it rather than to fight it.”   —   Sonia Sotomayor

(But the only way to fix any broken, or corrupt, system is to fight the powers who have allowed it to break, and who are profiting from it staying broken.  We’re not talking about a toaster, or some other simple mechanical device here.  Those with power are NOT about to surrender that power without somebody forcing them to do so.  That is simply human nature, folks.  To me, this get along kind of quote leaves a lot to be desired.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(I’m glad she said “could”.  It depends on how deep that deficit is, I guess.  Confidence trumps just about everything.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

I can and do aspire to be greater than the sum total of my experiences, but I accept my limitations.”   —   Sonia Sotomayor

(Our very first – of many, I hope – quotes from Justice Sotomayor.  It’s not saying exactly the same thing, but it puts me in mind of John Lennon’s:  “Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.”  from “Beautiful Boy”.  We should have dreams and aspirations, but life is going to happen to us, whether we plan it or not.  Enjoy your weekend.  Enjoy your life.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
