RBG's iconic quotes on law, love and the fight for equality

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died on Friday after suffering from complications from metastatic pancreas cancer. But the 87-year-old who has become known and endeared as "The Notorious RBG" left behind words of wisdom, love and strength to ensure that her legacy of fighting for justice will continue well beyond her life.

Ginsburg was known for never shying away from making progressive statements, no matter how controversial the subject may be. From the endless fight for women's rights to the importance of maintaining an open mind and heart in all conversations, here are some of the most iconic quotes from the Notorious RBG.

On law:

"I tell law students… if you are going to be a lawyer and just practice your profession, you have a skill—very much like a plumber. But if you want to be a true professional, you will do something outside yourself… something that makes life a little better for people less fortunate than you."- The Mercury News, February 6, 2017

"Real change, enduring change, happens one step at a time."
