"If the Democrats lose control of the Senate in November, there will be expressions of despair: Doesn’t she know that she could die at any minute? Why isn’t it her priority to make sure the Court house is tidy before she leaves? Ginsburg’s dissent, to Weisberg, is a strong one:

“Who do you think President Obama could appoint at this very day, given the boundaries that we have? If I resign any time this year, he could not successfully appoint anyone I would like to see in the court. [The Senate Republicans] took off the filibuster for lower federal court appointments, but it remains for this court. So anybody who thinks that if I step down, Obama could appoint someone like me, they’re misguided.”"

Things to worry about:

Worry about courage
Worry about Cleanliness
Worry about efficiency…

Things not to worry about:

Don’t worry about popular opinion…
Don’t worry about the past
Don’t worry about the future
Don’t worry about growing up
Don’t worry about anybody getting ahead of you…

"

For F. Scott Fitzgerald’s birthday, his fatherly advice on what to worry vs. not worry about in life – a wonderful letter to his young daughter, Scottie (via explore-blog)

Always worrying about courage, cleanliness, and efficiency, thank god F. Scott thinks it’s alright.

"I am from Britain and think it is right that as a woman I am paid the same as my male counterparts. I think it is right that I should be able to make decisions about my own body. I think it is right that women be involved on my behalf in the policies and decision-making of my country. I think it is right that socially I am afforded the same respect as men. But sadly I can say that there is no one country in the world where all women can expect to receive these rights."

A Smart Girls must-watch.
