Over the last 30 years, Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, Antonin Scalia has had his share of controversial remarks and decisions… His colorful, yet controversial interpretations of the Constitution were always interesting to hear. Appointed by President Reagan in 1986, he was the longest serving justice on the Court at the time of his death.

His unfortunate death could derail some of the biggest cases before the U.S. on voting rights, Affirmative Action, labor unions, abortion, immigration and contraception – a case where religious non-profits are seeking an exemption from the Affordable Care Act’s mandate that states employers must pay for contraceptives as part of the standard health insurance plans.

As controversial as he may have been, he was still well respected… and if you followed him closely, you had an opportunity to hear some of his most motivational quotes including:

"If I have brought any message today, it is this: Have the courage to have your wisdom regarded as stupidity.”

"This case, involving legal requirements for the content and labeling of meat products such as frankfurters, affords a rare opportunity to explore simultaneously both parts of Bismarck's aphorism that 'No man should see how laws or sausages are made.'"

"I don't worry about my legacy. Just do your job right, and who cares?"

“The judge who always likes the results he reaches is a bad judge.”

“In a big family the first child is kind of like the first pancake. If it's not perfect, that's OK,” he said. “There are a lot more coming along.”
