When in-Justice Rehnquist, who decided in Ingraham v Wright that schools could beat students with thick wooden boards without even giving them a hearing like students must get before suspension, conducted Clinton's impeachment hearing he needlessly "invented" his own robe decorations, adding gold stripes:

Why did he not wear his doctorate robe and hat.
Some of those scholastic garbs can be very outlandish.

The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai
