A Quote by Abraham Lincoln on business, compromise, good, lawyers, neighbors, opportunity, persuasion, superiority, and time

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 (1809 - 1865)
