Famous quotes containing the words supreme court, court, california and/or supreme:

    The Supreme Court would have pleased me more if they had concerned themselves about enforcing the compulsory education provisions for Negroes in the South as is done for white children. The next ten years would be better spent in appointing truant officers and looking after conditions in the homes from which the children come. Use to the limit what we already have.
    Zora Neale Hurston (1891–1960)

    A friend i’the court is better than a penny in purse.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    The apparent ease of California life is an illusion, and those who believe the illusion will live here in only the most temporary way.
    Joan Didion (b. 1935)

    And what do I care if she marries another? every other night I dream of her dresses and things on an endless clothesline of bliss, in a ceaseless wind of possession, and her husband shall never learn what I do to the silks and fleece of the dancing witch. This is love’s supreme accomplishment. I am happy—yes, happy! What more can I do to prove it, how to proclaim that I am happy? Oh, to shout it so that all of you believe me at last, you cruel, smug people.
    Vladimir Nabokov (1899–1977)
