Two Supreme Court justices, on separate, unrelated occasions, have urged for lawmakers in Washington, D.C., to roll back partisan divisions, the Washington Examiner reported.

"To preserve our civil liberties, we have to work on being civil with one another," the newest justice, Neil Gorsuch, said in a Stockton University speech on Jan. 23, the newspaper noted.

Gorsuch said when people behave in an uncivil manner, "you will be tempted to respond in kind… but it is possible to disagree without being disagreeable. . . . At the end of the day, your character is the most important thing in your possession." 

"I've got pretty civil colleagues. Disagreement is part of the job description. It doesn't stop us from having dinner together," Gorsuch said , The Press of Atlantic City reported.

Gorsuch said that civility requires "listening and engaging with the merits of ideas rather than simply trying to silence or dismiss or ridicule."

"It's a hard lesson. No one's perfect. We all make mistakes. It's not about good manners, it's about keeping our Republic," he added.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg weighed in at Roger Williams University School of Law in Rhode Island Tuesday.

"Someday, I hope we will get back to the way it was. I think it will take great leaders on both sides of the aisle to say, 'Let's stop this nonsense and start working for the country the way we should,'" Ginsburg said, according to the Examiner.
