Morris S. Arnold

Morris Sheppard "Buzz" Arnold (born 1941) is a senior-status jurist of the United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit. A Republican, he was appointed to the appeals court by U.S. President George Herbert Walker Bush. His tenure began on June 1, 1992. For his first twelve years, until 2004, he served on the court alongside his older brother, Richard S. Arnold, a Democrat appointed by President Jimmy Carter. Richard Arnold died of an infection while he was afflicted with long-term lymphoma. Because of new federal nepotism rules, two brothers are unlikely to serve again simultaneously on the same federal court in the future.

Famous quotes containing the words arnold and/or morris:

    —No, no thou hast not felt the lapse of hours!
    For what wears out the life of mortal men?
    ‘Tis that from change to change their being rolls;
    ‘Tis that repeated shocks, again, again,
    Exhaust the energy of strongest souls
    And numb the elastic powers.
    —Matthew Arnold (1822–1888)

    The wind’s on the wold
    And the night is a-cold,
    And Thames runs chill
    ‘Twixt mead and hill.
    But kind and dear
    Is the old house here
    And my heart is warm
    Midst winter’s harm.
    —William Morris (1834–1896)
