Robert Bork quotes :
The notion that Congress can change the meaning given a constitutional provision by the Court is subversive of the function of judicial review and it is not the less so because the Court promises to allow it only when the Constitution is moved to the left.Robert Bork
The purpose that brought the fourteenth amendment into being was equality before the law, and equality, not separation, was written into the law.Robert Bork
