A Quote by Alfred Adler on books, company, economics, friendship, lawyers, mathematics, work, and writers

In the company of friends, writers can discuss their books, economists the state of the economy, lawyers their latest cases, and businessmen their latest acquisitions, but mathematicians cannot discuss their mathematics at all. And the more profound their work, the less understandable it is.

Alfred Adler (1870 - 1937)

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)
