"In battle, there are not more than two methods of attack--
the direct and the indirect;
yet, these two in combination give rise to
an endless series of maneuvers."
- Sun Tzu,
The Art of War
"Discourage litigation. 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
