Ruth Bader Ginsburg says this is the secret to living a meaningful life

By any measure, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has led a remarkably successful life.

Appointed by President Clinton in 1993, she became the second woman ever to be sworn in as a justice for the country’s highest court. She is a champion of women’s rights and well-respected for her willingness to stand firm in a dissenting opinion.

A successful life is distinct from a profound and vital one, however.

“To put it simply, it means doing something outside yourself,” Ginsburg tells Stanford University students.

For attorneys, passing the bar is only the first step.

“If you are going to be a lawyer and just practice your profession, well, you have a skill so you are very much like a plumber,” says Ginsburg.

Do something outside yourself, something to repair tears in your community.
