People are getting smarter nowadays; they are letting lawyers, instead of their conscience, be their guide.


Will Rogers (1879-1935, American humorist, actor)

It was not a question of winning or losing it, and indeed it was vital to do neither, for otherwise the suit would be over and done with. A lawsuit was part of the personality, if not the only visible sign of it, to such an extent that there was often no real animosity between the litigants, because they both needed each other.


Salvatore Satta (1902-1975, Italian jurist, novelist)

Jonathan Swift (1667-1745, Anglo-Irish satirist)
