“Courage is the most important attribute of a lawyer. It is more important than competence or vision."

Robert F. Kennedy

It is not what a lawyer tells me I may do; but what humanity, reason, and justice, tell me I ought to do.

Edmunde Burke, Second Speech on Conciliation with America, The 13 Resolutions (1775)
