I could not be more proud of the way my city responded. -Rudy Giuliani

Practicing in the trial work trenches of the law, I saw, too, that when we judges don our robes, it doesn't make us any smarter, but it does serve as a reminder of what's expected of us: Impartiality and independence, collegiality and courage. -Neil Gorsuch

Throughout my decade on the bench, I have watched my colleagues strive day in and day out to do just as Socrates said we should – to hear courteously, answer wisely, consider soberly, and decide impartially. -Neil Gorsuch

If strong economic conditions can partially reverse supply-side damage after it has occurred, then policymakers may want to aim at being more accommodative during recoveries than would be called for under the traditional view that supply is largely independent of demand. -Janet Yellen

Compromise is not such ignoble and deplorable a thing as we generally think. It is rather an indispensable factor in the political strategy. Any nation that rises against the oppressors is bound to fail in the beginning and to gain partial reforms during the medieval period of its struggle through compromises. -Bhagat Singh

Mr. Best has expressed the desire to work with me, and I should be more than pleased to have him. His work has been excellent, and he is absolutely honest, careful, and impartial and has taken a great interest in the work. -Frederick Banting

It is important for people to be able to read all sides of every question; for a feeling of national unity does not come from one-sided or inadequate information, but from a sense of freedom impartially secured and of opportunity equalized by a just government. -Jeannette Rankin

Nothing can conduce more to the order and stability of a government than the simplicity of the laws, the proper definition of rights, and their impartial and consistent administration. -Sam Houston

My marks were always bad, and I was a bad influence on other children, so they would explain to my mother that they could retain me only by being partial towards me, and so I should offer to leave the school myself. I would barely get 40-50% and was also extremely naughty. -Ram Charan

I feel like the U.K. is a better breeding ground for pop, partially because the radio play is more broad and open to new ideas and sounds. -Charli XCX

I was born to sell it as a kid. I think it's partially innate, and partly it's because my parents were always very clear: if I needed anything that wasn't a necessity, I was going to have to save my money and buy it myself. That meant not only did I have to buy basketball shoes, but I had to figure out how to pay for college as well. -Mark Cuban

I was a 'reverence for life' man – 'see life steadily and see it whole' – in my days as a lecturer in English lit. We are, I argued, if not exactly 'saved' by reading, at least partially 'repaired' by it: made the better morally and existentially. -Howard Jacobson

The Soviet Union was a partial check on capitalist looting in the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s. However, with the Soviet collapse, capitalist looting intensified during the Clinton, Bush, and Obama regimes. -Paul Craig Roberts

I like to take a day off and enjoy fast food for what it is. I have to say that in New York, I'm really partial about taco trucks. I mean, I really can't handle it. There is something about catching all those ingredients piled on top of each other: it puts me in a tizzy. I love it. I'm kind of a taco truck junkie. -Alex Guarnaschelli

When I was a small child, I partially learned to read with comics, in particular with 'Scamp,' about the Lady and the Tramp's male child. That was the prime comic that made me fall in love with comics as a kid. -James Gunn

Gorbachev's legacy is that he called time on communism, partially against his will, but in fact, he finished it off. Without violence. Without bloodshed. Beyond that, I am struggling to think of much else in terms of real legacy. -Helmut Kohl

I was born in the U.S., and that's who I rep. Although when the winter Olympics come around, I'm pretty partial to Norway's success and what they do. -Anders Holm

The thing about stereotypes as we all know, there is often truth in them, but it's almost always a partial truth. -Alex Tizon

You set something in modern-day Texas, which is so identifiable as the Old West, and everyone's wearing guns, so it looks like it's going to be, by default, partially considered a western. -Taylor Sheridan

One of the things I believe strongly in is developing institutions – legal, press, bureaucracies, academies – that are rooted in the pursuit of impartial truth. That aren't simply just bent to partisan ends or are corrupted for the powerful or for other ulterior motives. -David Grann

Abortion is not a right. It is a violent act against the defenseless. It violates every principle of morality and should be barred by American law. Until that day, I fully support bans on partial-birth abortion, third-trimester abortion, and indeed every limit that can receive public support. -Josh Hawley

I'm not a complete psychopath. Am I partially? Sure. I'll accept that. But I'm not a complete psychopath. -Jocko Willink

TPP replicates similar language from past trade agreements that has allowed foreign corporations the right to challenge U.S. federal, state, and local laws outside of American courts. These tribunals will not meet our high standard of transparency and due process, and they will rely on weak impartiality rules for selecting judges. -Dan Lipinski

In my capacity as a board member of the OfS, I hope to be impartial, objective, and fair. -Toby Young

Criminality being partially preordained may seem to let culprits off the hook. Yet it also makes the proclivity seem ineradicable and suggests that reform is unlikely: once a baddie, always a baddie. -Lionel Shriver

The whole essence of humanitarian work and the Geneva Convention is that neutral, impartial organisations can operate during war. -Peter Maurer

The history of Oregon is partially the history of a state that legislated not wanting black people around. -W. Kamau Bell

I'm partial to a Muji recycled-paper sketch book and a Sharpie ultrafine marker. -Jenna Wortham

Very few parents keep up with who the top professors are or whose classes their kids are taking, partially because most undergraduates interact more commonly with graduate students. -Andrew Yang

I tend to be a fairly spirited person, but I've never hated anyone more than I hated Christian Longo after his trial, when I realized his guilt and that I had been partially duped. -Michael Finkel

Judges are either partial to the Constitution or they aren't; they either believe that the document is perfect in its form and that rights like free speech don't ebb in and out of style – or they believe that it's an anachronistic document in a world that needs a malleable, living Constitution. -Dana Loesch

I think people have always had ambiguous relationships toward the police because of the position in society they occupy. But that anxiety and that animosity isn't as strong in other places as it is in the U.S., partially because the police are armed here. -Clare-Hope Ashitey

Good judges do not side with anyone. They rule impartially and blindly based upon the law. -Wendy Long

Mainstream America, in the long run, will always stand for highly qualified, impartial judges and for a fair process and for senators who do their jobs and vote – not who unfairly smear good men like Judge Alito. -Wendy Long

'Socialism' became this weird household word partially because right-wingers call Obama a socialist, which he is the farthest from. -Alicia Garza

Chris Kirkpatrick and I were in college in choir together; we sang at our community college. I'm partially the reason why Chris even got into being in a boy band with *NSYNC. -Howie Dorough

I've always been very insecure and had a lot of self-doubt growing up. That was partially because of how I was raised. -Kali Uchis

I'm partial to the Cornish coast, as it's near where I grew up in Plymouth. The views across the water are stunning. I love walking along the sandy beaches and the seafront paths. -Tom Daley

I believe that an independent and impartial judiciary is essential to our constitutional republic. -Brett Kavanaugh

Of course, people will be partial, but I put myself among the best in history. -Jose Aldo

I am rather partial to Shakespeare, though I haven't done loads. But when it's done right, there's nothing like it. There are layers upon layers upon layers, and you unpack new things constantly.

My lineage is partially Irish. -Devin Townsend

I would die in a ditch for the impartiality of the BBC. -Laura Kuenssberg

I'm not particular about makeup, but when I do wear it, I am partial to Fenty. That is what I own. I own it because it is partial to the various colors and shades of black women. It is one of the best cosmetic companies around as far as trying to remove toxins from makeup, and Rihanna is empathetic to the experiences of trans women. -Indya Moore
