No system of regulation can safely be substituted for the operation of individual liberty as expressed in competition.

- Hon. Louis Brandeis

The ultimate good desired is better reached by free trade in ideas -- the best test of truth is the power of thought to get itself accepted in the competition of the market.

- Hon. Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.

Persuade your neighbors to compromise whenever you can. As a peacemaker the lawyer has superior opportunity of being a good man. There
will still be business enough.

- Abraham Lincoln

The old idea of a good bargain was a transaction in which one man got the better of another. The new idea of a good contract is a transaction which is good for both parties to it.

- Hon. Louis Brandeis

It is not what a lawyer tells me I may do; but what humanity, reason, and justice tell me I ought to do.

- Edmund Burke
