The courts of this country

“The courts of this country should not be the places where resolution of disputes begins. They should be
the places where the disputes end after alternative methods of resolving disputes have been considered and tried.”

Justice Sandra Day O’Connor

Like two men ducking their heads

“The plaintiff and the defendant in an action at law, are like two men ducking their heads in a bucket, and daring each other to remain longest under water.”
Samuel Johnson

Once when I lost a lawsuit

“I have never been ruined but twice: once when I lost a lawsuit, and once when I won one.”


An eye for an eye

“An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind.”

The litigious spirit

“The litigious spirit is more often found with ignorance than with knowledge of law.”


Discourage litigation!

“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.”

Abraham Lincoln
