Nam Retupad is discussing:

My favorite SCOTUS justice is Clarence Thomas. He gave an interview fairly early on in his SCOTUS tenure and was asked about some of the decisions he made that were at odds with his prior court rulings. His answer was fascinating and illustrates why he's my favorite.

I will paraphrase as I don't have the quotes before me. He said "This is not my constitution to play with and change it as I would have it. This constitution belongs to ALL the people and I have no right to impose MY views on them."

Again, that is a paraphrase, but I believe it fairly captures the essence of his more eloquent words.
