Justice Steven's legacy - Brilliance and humility


Ive never felt any interest in trying to break any records, -Justice Stevens

One time, walking into a Court reception, Stevens relieved a law clerk of the task another Justice had assigned her: serving coffee to that Justice and the other men in the room. "Thank you for taking your turn with the coffee," Stevens told her. "I think it's my turn now." Diane Marie Amann
