"Persuade your neighbors to compromise whenever you can.  Point out to them how the nominal winner is often a real loser - in fees, expenses, and waste of time.  As a peacemaker the lawyer has a superior opportunity of being a good man.  There will still be business enough."  Abraham Lincoln in 1850.
