Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor revealed Thursday what she would do if she ever voluntarily quit the high court.

Speaking at Clemson University, Sotomayor told South Carolinians that not every moment of her life as a Supreme Court justice is fascinating.

"When and if I ever leave the Supreme Court, I'm going back to the trial bench," Sotomayor said, according to reports.

President Obama appointed Sotomayor to the Supreme Court in 2009, making her one of the high court's newest justices.

Sotomayor wandered through the audience during her visit to Clemson and said she does not have difficulty putting aside her personal opinions while judging because she has "faith in the system I've joined."

Sotomayor was not the only Supreme Court justice visiting the state Thursday. About 130 miles east of Clemson, Justice Samuel Alito delivered a speech at the dedication of a new University of South Carolina School of Law building in Columbia.
