One for the Ages - Abe Turns 200

"Discourage litigation," he writes in "Notes For a Law Lecture"

"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 peace-maker, the lawyer has a superior opportunity of being a good man. There will still be business enough."

Abraham Lincoln
