Reservoir Of Trust

We have to reflect on what these issues mean, and when we have a controversial case -- and a very difficult case like (same-sex marriage) -- we draw down on a capital of trust, a deposit of trust.  We spend that capital of trust, and we have to rebuild that capital.  We have to put new deposits, new substance into this reservoir of trust.

-- Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy (23 July 1936-), on the effect of controversial rulings, in remarks at the 9th Circuit Judicial Conference, 15 July 2015
