Lawyers quotes by Carly Fiorina
#1. While lawyers are arguing about the PATRIOT Act or the America Freedom Act, the point is, the terrorists have moved on, the technologists have moved on, and we, the United States of America, are not taking advantage of the latest and greatest in technology the terrorists are. We need to get smart about it. #Quote by Carly Fiorina
Lawyers quotes by Harvey Milk
#2. I cannot prevent anyone from getting angry, or mad, or frustrated. I can only hope that they'll turn that anger and frustration and madness into something positive, so that two, three, four, five hundred will step forward, so the gay doctors will come out, the gay lawyers, the gay judges, gay bankers, gay architects I hope that every professional gay will say 'enough', come forward and tell everybody, wear a sign, let the world know. Maybe that will help. #Quote by Harvey Milk
Lawyers quotes by Thom Mayne
#3. In architecture, you arrive so late. I look at doctors, lawyers I know, and they're all buying boats and bailing out at 62. My career is just getting started. #Quote by Thom Mayne
Lawyers quotes by Anton Chekhov
#4. Doctors are just the same as lawyers; the only difference is that lawyers merely rob you, whereas doctors rob you and kill you too. #Quote by Anton Chekhov
Lawyers quotes by Renee Carlino
#5. We walked hand in hand toward Adam's apartment building. "You don't seem lawyerly," I said.

"What's lawyerly? Like, douche-y?"

"No, like . . . disciplined. Tightly wound. High-strung. You were roaming the streets in the middle of the night, wearing flip-flops and offering Chinese food to strangers."

"You must not know very many lawyers. Anyway, now I'm roaming the streets in the middle of the night, wearing flip-flops, carrying Chinese food, and holding your hand. I win. And there's nothing more lawyerly than winning. #Quote by Renee Carlino
Lawyers quotes by Ann Coulter
#6. I think being called a she-devil by a trial lawyer is meant as a compliment. #Quote by Ann Coulter
Lawyers quotes by Milan Kundera
#7. To put it another way, every love relationship is based upon unwritten conventions rashly agreed upon by the lovers during the first weeks of their love. On the one hand, they are living a sort of dream; on the other, without realizing it, they are drawing up the fine print of their contracts like the most hard-nosed of lawyers. O lovers! Be wary during those perilous first days! If you serve the other party breakfast in bed, you will be obliged to continue same in perpetuity or face charges of animosity and treason! #Quote by Milan Kundera
Lawyers quotes by Lemony Snicket
#8. But one type of book that practically no one likes to read is a book about the law. Books about the law are notorious for being very long, very dull, and very difficult to read. This is one reason many lawyers make heaps of money. The money is an incentive - the word "incentive" here means "an offered reward to persuade you to do something you don't want to do - to read long, dull, and difficult books. #Quote by Lemony Snicket
Lawyers quotes by Charles Dickens
#9. It may, at first sight, be matter of surprise to the thoughtless few that Mr Brass, being a professional gentleman, should not have legally indicted some party or parties, active in the promotion of the nuisance, but they will be good enough to remember, that as Doctors seldom take their own prescriptions, and Divines do not always practise what they preach, so lawyers are shy of meddling with the Law on their own account: knowing it to be an edged tool of uncertain application, very expensive in the working, and rather remarkable for its properties of close shaving, than for its always shaving the right person. #Quote by Charles Dickens
Lawyers quotes by Paul Broun
#10. I represent poor people, I represent working people. I represent senior citizens. I represent family businesses. I represent people who don't have the wherewithal to hire overpriced Washington lobbyists and lawyers. I want to send the powers back to the states and the people. #Quote by Paul Broun
Lawyers quotes by Alex Berenson
#11. I think when you have lawyers arguing over whether you can keep a detainee at 46 degrees ... for two hours, that's not torture. It may be unpleasant, it may be coercive ... but let's say what torture actually is, and that's not it. #Quote by Alex Berenson
Lawyers quotes by Scott Weiss
#12. One of the rookie mistakes first-time entrepreneurs often make is to be too guarded about their idea - in fact, many will actually spend their first $25,000 on patent lawyers without ever fully vetting their product. #Quote by Scott Weiss
Lawyers quotes by Lawrence Lessig
#13. Lawyers rarely test their power, or the power they promote, against this simple pragmatic question: "Will it do good?" When challenged about the expanding reach of the law, the lawyer answers, "Why not? #Quote by Lawrence Lessig
Lawyers quotes by Thomas Friedman
#14. We are led by lawyers who do not understand either technology or balance sheets. #Quote by Thomas Friedman
Lawyers quotes by Anonymous
#15. The Catholic Church also opposes any effort to make it easier to deport children; last week, the archbishop of Chicago, Cardinal Francis E. George, said he had offered facilities in his diocese to house some of the children, and on Monday, bishops in Dallas and Fort Worth called for lawyers to volunteer to represent the children at immigration proceedings. "We have to put our money where our mouth is in this country," said Kevin Appleby, the director of migration policy for the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. "We tell other countries to protect human rights and accept refugees, but when we get a crisis on our border, we don't know how to respond." Republicans have rejected calls by Democrats for $2.7 billion in funds to respond to the crisis, demanding changes in immigration law to make it easier to send children back to Central America. And while President Obama says he is open to some changes, many Democrats have opposed them, and Congress is now deadlocked. #Quote by Anonymous
Lawyers quotes by Dan Quayle
#16. I told you all lawyers are worthless. After all it takes won (sic) to know one. #Quote by Dan Quayle
Lawyers quotes by Abraham Lincoln
#17. Extemporaneous speaking should be practiced and cultivated. It is the lawyer's avenue to the public. However able and faithful he may be in other respects, people are slow to bring him business if he cannot make a speech. #Quote by Abraham Lincoln
Lawyers quotes by Daniel H. Pink
#18. The billable hours is a classic case of restricted autonomy. I mean, you're working on - I mean, sometimes on these six-minute increments. So you're not focused on doing a good job. You're focused on hitting your numbers. It's one reason why lawyers typically are so unhappy. And I want a world of happy lawyers. #Quote by Daniel H. Pink
Lawyers quotes by John Grisham
#19. This is not a problem peculiar to Oklahoma, far from it. Wrongful convictions occur every month in every state in this country, and the reasons are all varied and all the same - bad police work, junk science, faulty eyewitness identifications, bad defense lawyers, lazy prosecutors, arrogant prosecutors. #Quote by John Grisham
Lawyers quotes by Hunter S. Thompson
#20. But I have a flash of Good News from the Police Atrocity front, which is heating up in Denver. ... Stand back! Good News is rare in the Criminal Justice System, but every once in a while you find it, and this is one of those times. To wit: the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers has formally entered the Appeals trial of young Lisl Auman - the girl who remains locked up in a cell at the Colorado State Prison for the Rest of Her Life with No Possibility of Parole for a bogus crime she was never even Accused of committing. She is a living victim of a cold-blooded political trial that will cast a long shadow on Denver for many years to come. Lisl is the only person ever convicted in the United States for Felony Murder who was in police custody when the crime happened. #Quote by Hunter S. Thompson
Lawyers quotes by Alexandre Dumas
#21. Why,' said he, 'does not the emperor, who has devised so many clever and efficient modes of improving the art of war, organize a regiment of lawyers, judges and legal practitioners, sending them in the hottest fire the enemy could maintain, and using them to save better men? #Quote by Alexandre Dumas
Lawyers quotes by John Gierach
#22. Lawyers are like nuclear weapons. By all rights they shouldn't exist, but if some people have them, then you'd better have one, too, just in case. #Quote by John Gierach
Lawyers quotes by William O. Douglas
#23. The purpose of the University of Washington cannot be to produce black lawyers for blacks, Polish lawyers for Poles, Jewish lawyers for Jews, Irish lawyers for Irish. It should be to produce good lawyers for Americans and not to place First Amendment barriers against anyone. #Quote by William O. Douglas
Lawyers quotes by Woody Harrelson
#24. In the courtroom, it's where a lawyer really becomes an actor. There's a very fine line between delivering a monologue in a play and delivering a monologue to a jury. I've always felt that way - I've been in a lot of courtrooms. The best lawyers are really theatrical. #Quote by Woody Harrelson
Lawyers quotes by Dorothy L. Sayers
#25. Lawyers enjoy a little mystery, you know. Why, if everybody came forward and told the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth straight out, we should all retire to the workhouse. #Quote by Dorothy L. Sayers
Lawyers quotes by Denis Johnson
#26. I know they argue about whether or not it's right, whether or not the baby is alive at this point or that point in its growth inside the womb. This wasn't about that. It wasn't what the lawyers did. It wasn't what the doctors did, it wasn't what the woman did. It was what the mother and father did together. #Quote by Denis Johnson
Lawyers quotes by Deborah And James Howe
#27. Fangs are more pointed, and vampires use fangs to bite people on the neck.'
'Yech! Who'd want to do that?'
'Vampires would, that's who.'
'Wait a minute. I saw Mrs. Monroe bite Mr. Monroe on the neck once. Does that mean she's a vampire?'
'Boy, are you dumb. She's not a vampire. She's a lawyer. #Quote by Deborah And James Howe
Lawyers quotes by Barack Obama
#28. Most people who serve in Washington have been trained either as lawyers or as political operatives
professions that tend to place a premium on winning arguments rather than solving problems. #Quote by Barack Obama
Lawyers quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#29. Only Lawyers and mental defectives are automatically exempt for jury duty. #Quote by George Bernard Shaw
Lawyers quotes by Edward Snowden
#30. Lawyers from the NSA, as well as the UK's GCHQ, work very hard to search for loopholes in laws and constitutional protections that they can use to justify indiscriminate, dragnet surveillance operations that were at best unwittingly authorized by lawmakers. #Quote by Edward Snowden
Lawyers quotes by Margaret Mitchell
#31. The south produced statesmen and soldiers, planters and doctors and lawyers and poets, but certainly no engineers and mechanics. Let Yankees adopt such low callings. #Quote by Margaret Mitchell
Lawyers quotes by Shirley Chisholm
#32. ... My present attitude toward politics as it is practiced in the United States: it is a beautiful fraud that has been imposed on the people for years, whose practitioners exchange gilded promises for the most valuable thing their victims own, their votes. And who benefits most? The lawyers. (Chapter 4) #Quote by Shirley Chisholm
Lawyers quotes by Naomi Klein
#33. What has stood out in this wave of early resistance is how the barriers defining who is and who is not an 'activist' or an 'organizer' are completely breaking down. People are organizing mass events who have never organized anything political before. A great many are discovering that, whatever their field of expertise, whether they are lawyers or restaurant workers, they have crucial skills to share in this emerging network of resistance. And wherever they live or work, whether it's a laboratory or a bodega or a law firm or inside the home, they have the power, if they organize with others, to throw a wrench into a dangerous system. #Quote by Naomi Klein
Lawyers quotes by Bharati Mukherjee
#34. I had a 2-week courtship with a fellow student in the fiction workshop in Iowa and a 5-minute wedding in a lawyer's office above the coffee shop where we'd been having lunch that day. And so I sent a cable to my father saying, 'By the time you get this, Daddy, I'll already be Mrs. Blaise!' #Quote by Bharati Mukherjee
Lawyers quotes by Gore Vidal
#35. A nation not of men but of laws, intoned John Adams as he, among other lawyers, launched what has easily become the most demented society ever consciously devised by intelligent men. We are now enslaves by laws. We are governed by lawyers. We create little but litigate much. Our monuments are the ever-expanding prisons, where millions languish for having committed victimless crimes or for simply not playing the game of plausible deniability (aka lying) with a sufficiently good legal team. What began as a sort of Restoration comedy, The Impeachment of a President, on a frivolous, irrelevant matter, is suddenly turning very black indeed, and all our political arrangements are at risk as superstitious Christian fundamentalists and their corporate manipulators seem intent on overthrowing two presidential elections in a Senate trial. This is no longer comedy. This is usurpation. #Quote by Gore Vidal
Lawyers quotes by Eric Ludy
#36. Selfishness, like Jimmy the Shrimp, works underground. Most people don't even realize it is there, which is precisely why it is so dangerous. Selfishness works in secret, behind closed doors, on the black market, plotting and planning our destruction. Selfishness is the Mob boss of the soul. In fact, without selfishness, you wouldn't have murder, hate, holocaust, slander, genocide, betrayal, or crooked lawyers - because those are all the convoluted results of Jimmy the Shrimp's regime. Simply put, selfishness is the sickness behind all other sicknesses. #Quote by Eric Ludy
Lawyers quotes by Iyanla Vanzant
#37. As people, we have forgotten to be people. We know how to be doctors, lawyers, nurses, teachers, we know what to do, we know what to buy, but how do I just sit with you in your pain? How do I sit with you in your vulnerability and not betray you, not abuse you? We do not know how to do that, even in our homes. #Quote by Iyanla Vanzant
Lawyers quotes by Geraldine Ferraro
#38. I was a trial lawyer when I was elected to Congress. #Quote by Geraldine Ferraro
Lawyers quotes by Franz Kafka
#39. Palestine needs earth, but it does not need lawyers. #Quote by Franz Kafka
Lawyers quotes by Wilson Mizner
#40. I've had ample contact with lawyers, and I'm convinced that the only fortune they ever leave is their own. #Quote by Wilson Mizner
Lawyers quotes by Larry Gagosian
#41. I think functioning as a business manager can be a hindrance to having a real dialogue with the artist. I do think that artists need good lawyers and accountants, because they're dealing with serious money. But an artist who stands behind a manager? That's a little different. I think that can be a bad buffer. #Quote by Larry Gagosian
Lawyers quotes by Robert Cray
#42. Tell me a boat full of lawyers just sank. #Quote by Robert Cray
Lawyers quotes by Clarence Darrow
#43. Robert G. Ingersoll was a great man. a wonderful intellect, a great soul of matchless courage, one of the great men of the earth -- and yet we have no right to bow down to his memory simply because he was great. Great orators, great soldiers, great lawyers, often use their gifts for a most unholy cause. We meet to pay a tribute of love and respect to Robert G. Ingersoll because he used his matchless power for the good of man.

{Darrow's eulogy for Ingersoll at his funeral} #Quote by Clarence Darrow
Lawyers quotes by Akio Morita
#44. While the United States has been busy creating lawyers, we have been busier creating engineers. #Quote by Akio Morita
Lawyers quotes by Arthur Schopenhauer
#45. Our civilized world is nothing but a great masquerade. You encounter knights, parsons, soldiers, doctors, lawyers, priests, philosophers and a thousand more: but they are not what they appear - they are merely masks ... Usually, as I say, there is nothing but industrialists, businessmen and speculators concealed behind all these masks. #Quote by Arthur Schopenhauer
Lawyers quotes by Keshia Knight Pulliam
#46. 'The Cosby Show' - no one thought there's doctors and lawyers who are married and live in brownstones! Back then no one would have thought we would have an African-American president. They would have laughed in your face. #Quote by Keshia Knight Pulliam
Lawyers quotes by Kurt Andersen
#47. Back then I used to say that I despised the new coinage "quality time," that it was yuppie parents' smiley-face equivalent to lawyers' "billable hours. #Quote by Kurt Andersen
Lawyers quotes by Bob Dylan
#48. With great lawyers you have discussed lepers and crooks, you've been through all of F. Scott Fitzgerald's books. #Quote by Bob Dylan
Lawyers quotes by George Orwell
#49. There was no boss-class, no menial-class, no beggars, no prostitutes, no lawyers, no priests, no boot-licking, no cap-touching. #Quote by George Orwell
Lawyers quotes by Eugene V. Debs
#50. If you go to the city of Washington, you will find that almost all of those corporation lawyers and cowardly politicians, members of congress, and mis-representatives of the masses claim, in glowing terms, that they have risen from the ranks to places of eminence and distinction. I am very glad that I cannot make that claim for myself. I would be ashamed to admit that I had risen from the ranks. When I rise it will be with the ranks, and not from the ranks. #Quote by Eugene V. Debs
Lawyers quotes by Mark Twain
#51. They all laid their heads together like as many lawyers when they are gettin' ready to prove that a man's heirs ain't got any right to his property. #Quote by Mark Twain
Lawyers quotes by Anonymous
#52. I started to get nervous when people began posting, on the public newsgroups, plot suggestions for future books and speculation about how characters would develop. The Net is still new, and it is big and it is public, and has brought with it new perceptions and problems. (One minor one is that people are out driving their language on a worldwide highway without passing a test. Take the word plagiarize. I know what it means. You know what it means. Lawyers certainly know what it means. But I have seen it repeatedly used as a synonym for research, parody, and reference, as #Quote by Anonymous
Lawyers quotes by Gerald F. Lieberman
#53. It is unfair to believe everything we hear about lawyers, some of it might not be true. #Quote by Gerald F. Lieberman
Lawyers quotes by Percy Bysshe Shelley
#54. And many more Destructions played
In this ghastly masquerade,
All disguised, even to the eyes,
Like Bishops, lawyers, peers, and spies.
Last came Anarchy: he rode
On a white horse, splashed with blood;
He was pale even to the lips,
Like Death in the Apocalypse.
And he wore a kingly crown;
And in his grasp a sceptre shone;
On his brow this mark I saw -
I AM GOD, AND KING, AND LAW. #Quote by Percy Bysshe Shelley
Lawyers quotes by Dan Quayle
#55. Does America really need 70 percent of the world's lawyers? ... Is it healthy for our economy to have 18 million lawsuits coursing through our system annually? #Quote by Dan Quayle
Lawyers quotes by John Grisham
#56. The coffee arrives, and we backslide into what lawyers do best
talking about other lawyers. #Quote by John Grisham
Lawyers quotes by Jarod Kintz
#57. Who leads the world in consumption? America! Who has more lawyers per capita? America! Who has the highest incarceration rate? America! What is the greatest country on earth? America! #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Lawyers quotes by Sarah Pekkanen
#58. What sadist had invented the concept of skiing? Kira wondered. Who was the first person to decide it would be fun to rocket shakily down an icy mountain on two pieces of metal with wind attacking your face and snow spraying into your eyes and people whipping all around, waving spiky poles like gladiators closing in for a kill? She was shocked lawyers hadn't shut down the sport yet; the potential for catastrophe was rampant. #Quote by Sarah Pekkanen
Lawyers quotes by Carlos E. Asay
#59. I fear that many of us rush about from day to day taking for granted the Holy Scriptures. We scramble to honor appointments with physicians, lawyers, and businessmen. Yet we think nothing of postponing interviews with Deity postponing scripture study. Little wonder we develop anemic souls and lose our direction in living. How much better it would be if we planned and held sacred fifteen or twenty minutes a day for reading the scriptures. Such interviews with Deity would help us recognize his voice and enable us to receive guidance in all of our affairs. #Quote by Carlos E. Asay
Lawyers quotes by Jodi Picoult
#60. A guardian ad litem ... GAL is appointed by a court to be a child's advocate during legal proceedings that involve a minor. You don't have to be a lawyer to be trained as a GAL, but you have to have a moral compass and a heart. Which, actually probably renders most lawyers unqualified for the job. #Quote by Jodi Picoult
Lawyers quotes by William Wordsworth
#61. Private courts, Gloomy as coffins, and unsightly lanes Thrilled by some female vendor's scream, belike The very shrillest of all London cries, May then entangle our impatient steps; Conducted through those labyrinths, unawares, To privileged regions and inviolate, Where from their airy lodges studious lawyers Look out on waters, walks, and gardens green. #Quote by William Wordsworth
Lawyers quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#62. Many of the points made by the antiwar movement have been consciously assimilated by the Pentagon and its lawyers and advisers. Precision weaponry is good in itself, but its ability to discriminate is improving and will continue to improve. Cluster bombs are perhaps not good in themselves, but when they are dropped on identifiable concentrations of Taliban troops, they do have a heartening effect. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Lawyers quotes by Ima Phuneewon
#63. Q. What do lawyers wear to court? A. Lawsuits! #Quote by Ima Phuneewon
Lawyers quotes by Mark Knopfler
#64. Telegraph Road
A long time ago came a man on a track
Walking thirty miles with a pack on his back
And he put down his load where he thought it was the best
Made a home in the wilderness
He built a cabin and a winter store
And he ploughed up the ground by the cold lake shore
And the other travellers came riding down the track
And they never went further, no, they never went back
Then came the churches, then came the schools
Then came the lawyers, then came the rules
Then came the trains and the trucks with their loads
And the dirty old track was the telegraph road
Then came the mines - then came the ore
Then there was the hard times, then there was a war
Telegraph sang a song about the world outside
Telegraph road got so deep and so wide
Like a rolling river ...
And my radio says tonight it's gonna freeze
People driving home from the factories
There's six lanes of traffic
Three lanes moving slow ...
I used to like to go to work but they shut it down
I got a right to go to work but there's no work here to be found
Yes and they say we're gonna have to pay what's owed
We're gonna have to reap from some seed that's been sowed
And the birds up on the wires and the telegraph poles
They can always fly away from this rain and this cold
You can hear them singing out their telegraph code
All the way down the telegraph road
You know I'd soo #Quote by Mark Knopfler
Lawyers quotes by George Carlin
#65. The real reason that we can't have the Ten Commandments in a courthouse: You cannot post "Thou shalt not steal," "Thou shalt not commit adultery," and "Thou shalt not lie" in a building full of lawyers, judges, and politicians. It creates a hostile work environment. #Quote by George Carlin
Lawyers quotes by Jodi Picoult
#66. Lawyers were notorious for finding cases in the most unlikely places, especially ones with huge potential damagers awards. #Quote by Jodi Picoult
Lawyers quotes by Brandi Glanville
#67. The most surprising thing about breaking up is that you already know how to do it. Everything you need to know, you learned in kindergarten. Yours should always be better than his (especially when it comes to lawyers). #Quote by Brandi Glanville
Lawyers quotes by Robert Kennedy
#68. Lawyers have their duties as citizens, but they also have special duties as lawyers. Their obligations go far deeper than earning a living as specialists in corporation or tax law. They have a continuing responsibility to uphold the fundamental principles of justice from which the law cannot depart. #Quote by Robert Kennedy
Lawyers quotes by Luke The Evangelist
#69. And he said, Woe unto you also, ye lawyers! for ye lade men with burdens grievous to be borne, and ye yourselves touch not the burdens with one of your fingers. #Quote by Luke The Evangelist
Lawyers quotes by Clare Mackintosh
#70. They speak to each other through the magistrate, like warring children communicating through a parent, their words are extravagantly emotive illustrated with flamboyant gestures that are wasted on the empty court room #Quote by Clare Mackintosh
Lawyers quotes by Warren E. Burger
#71. Doctors still retain a high degree of public confidence because they are perceived as healers. Should lawyers not be healers? Healers, not warriors? Healers, not procurers? Healers, not hired guns? #Quote by Warren E. Burger
Lawyers quotes by Marc Grossberg
#73. Large firms are interesting places, Mr. Moran. They are their own universe, and the masters of that universe are all-knowing, even when the information is about one of their own. #Quote by Marc Grossberg
Lawyers quotes by Giles MacDonogh
#74. ...As the evening wore on (the supper did not end until seven in the morning), the public were admitted to watch the festivities from the balustrade, and were offered biscuits and refreshments to keep them going through the night.
...One of the lawyers was so upset by the evening that he got up to leave, proclaiming: 'They will send you to the madhouse and strike you from the list of members of the Bar.' Grimod responded by locking the doors to the apartment and preventing any further guests from leaving. Coffee and liquers were taken in an adjoining room lit by 130 candles while the guests were entertained by a magic-lantern show and some experiments with electricity performed by the Italian physicist Castanio. M Rival tells us that many of the guests fell asleep. #Quote by Giles MacDonogh
Lawyers quotes by Rachel Hartman
#75. Claude rubs the back of his neck and wrinkles his nose, about to tell me he was never sad. I believe this is called bravado and is not limited to lawyers, or even men, although that combination makes it almost unavoidable. #Quote by Rachel Hartman
Lawyers quotes by Scott Bakula
#76. And I've always felt comfortable certainly in a courtroom because you're just performing. And there was a time in my life when I thought when I grew up I'd be a trial lawyer myself. #Quote by Scott Bakula
Lawyers quotes by Peter F. Hamilton
#77. Lawyers had abolished the simple concept of right and wrong, turning it into degrees of guilt. #Quote by Peter F. Hamilton
Lawyers quotes by Johnnie Cochran
#78. Jurors want courtroom lawyers to have some compassion and be nice. #Quote by Johnnie Cochran
Lawyers quotes by Emily Thorne
#79. Defence lawyers use the term "duress" to describe the use of force, coercion or psychological pressure exerted on a client in the commission of a crime. When duress is applied to the emotionally unstable the result can be as violent as it is unpredictable. #Quote by Emily Thorne
Lawyers quotes by Lee Iacocca
#80. They've got about as many lawyers as we have sumo-wrestlers. #Quote by Lee Iacocca
Lawyers quotes by Anne Rice
#81. But even those people, cops, lawyers, doctors, learned what they learned from the aftermath. They weren't there when the killer tore at his victim; they didn't smell the scent of evil; they didn't hear the cries to heaven for something, someone, to intervene. #Quote by Anne Rice
Lawyers quotes by Linus Torvalds
#82. I spend a lot more time than any person should have to talking with lawyers and thinking about intellectual property issues. #Quote by Linus Torvalds
Lawyers quotes by Percival Everett
#83. Everybody should read fiction ... I don't think serious fiction is written for a few people. I think we live in a stupid culture that won't educate its people to read these things. It would be a much more interesting place if it would. And it's not just that mechanics and plumbers don't read literary fiction, it's that doctors and lawyers don't read literary fiction. It has nothing to do with class, it has to do with an anti-intellectual culture that doesn't trust art. #Quote by Percival Everett
Lawyers quotes by William Bernhardt
#84. I still believe in good and bad, in black and white, in right and wrong. I believe the guilty should be punished. I believe the law enforcement community has an obligation to make the world a better place, a safer placce. And I believe that with dedication and hard work, everyone can make a difference. Even lawyers. - Jack Bullock #Quote by William Bernhardt
Lawyers quotes by Michael Connelly
#85. He knew there were two kinds of truth in this world. The truth that was the unalterable bedrock of one's life and mission. And the other, malleable truth of politicians, charlatans, corrupt lawyers, and their clients, bent and molded to serve whatever purpose was at hand......The weight and guilt of possibly having made a horrible mistake so long ago was lifted.
It was Bosch who felt like the man proven innocent and released from a cage. #Quote by Michael Connelly
Lawyers quotes by Gerry Spence
#86. Why are scientists now using lawyers in laboratory experiments instead of rats? Three reasons: (1) lawyers are more plentiful than rats, (2) there is no danger the scientists will become attached to the lawyers, and (3) there are some things rats just won't do. #Quote by Gerry Spence
Lawyers quotes by John Grisham
#87. The company later went broke, and of course all blame was directed at the lawyers. Not once did I hear any talk that maybe a trace of mismanagement could in any way have contributed to the bankruptcy. #Quote by John Grisham
Lawyers quotes by Shanna Swendson
#88. Maybe we should bring back dueling," Ethan mused. "It would really unclog the court system, and thin out the ranks of lawyers. #Quote by Shanna Swendson
Lawyers quotes by Nadia Gordon
#89. A bottle of Stag's Leap Artemis Cab was open and hardly touched. That would be Stag's Leap Wine Cellars, thought Sunny, not to be confused with Stags' Leap Winery or the Stags Leap District. How many hundreds of thousands, perhaps even millions, of dollars did the lawyers get to sort out that tangle of suits and countersuits? And, in the end, it all came down to the placement of an apostrophe. The place where one stag leaps versus the place where multiple stags leap versus the declarative statement that multiple stags are inclined to leap around these few acres where very good Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are grown. #Quote by Nadia Gordon
Lawyers quotes by Vincent Bugliosi
#90. I view myself primarily as a trial lawyer who happens to be writing, as opposed to a writer who happens to be a trial lawyer, so the audience is like a jury to me. #Quote by Vincent Bugliosi
Lawyers quotes by Stephen Holmes
#91. There is no rule of law until the Mafia needs lawyers. #Quote by Stephen Holmes
Lawyers quotes by Sonali Dev
#92. Listen very carefully. Because I'm only going to lay this out for you once. I'm no longer the easy prey I once was and if you go up against me I will make sure you end up behind bars. You've fraudulently pocketed the money from the video. Our lawyers already have a criminal suit against you ready to go. Unless you're particularly keen on jail, you will leave my family alone, and you will withdraw the video and return all that money to the people you stole it from."
Julia opened her mouth, but Trisha held up her hand and she closed it. "And if you do one thing to harm DJ"- because suddenly Trisha was sure Julia had something on DJ; her nineties-Bollywood-plot theory didn't seem so farfetched- "I will make sure that every one of the families you've preyed on to make money off their tragedies gets together and sues your ass until every penny you've ever leeched is gone. Now get out of my office. Get out of my building- which by the way is private property. Soliciting business here is illegal. So the next time you think of setting foot here, know that I will have security throw you out on your cowardly, pathetic ass. #Quote by Sonali Dev
Lawyers quotes by Joel Miller
#93. Every day Big Government heaps demands and restrictions upon businesses that sink some enterprises, cause others to direct resources away from serving customers and instead toward jumping through hoops of lawyers and regulators, and prevent other operations from ever getting off the ground. #Quote by Joel Miller
Lawyers quotes by Craig Ferguson
#94. Divorce lawyers stoke anger and fear in their clients, knowing that as long as the conflicts remain unresolved the revenue stream will keep flowing. #Quote by Craig Ferguson
Lawyers quotes by Jeremy Rifkin
#95. The very notion that millions of workers displaced by the re-engineering and automation of the agricultural, manufacturing, and service sectors can be retrained to be scientists, engineers, technicians, executives, consultants, teachers, lawyers and the like, and then somehow find the appropriate number of job openings in the very narrow high-tech sector, seems at best a pipe dream, and at worst a delusion. #Quote by Jeremy Rifkin
Lawyers quotes by Carlo Gambino
#96. Judges,lawyers an politicians have a license to steal.We don't need one. #Quote by Carlo Gambino
Lawyers quotes by Amy Andrews
#97. Ivy just had to look at him to know that Dean Bennet would never look at her. He was the kind of guy who dated flamenco dancers or famous actresses or multi-lingual international human rights lawyers. Not sheltered little daddy's girls who could barely look at him without turning red. #Quote by Amy Andrews
Lawyers quotes by Fred Rodell
#98. The reason the lawyers lead the line to the guillotine or the firing squad is that, while law is supposed to be a device to serve society, a civilized way of helping the wheels go round without too much friction, it is pretty hard to find a group less concerned with serving society and more concerned with serving themselves than the lawyers. #Quote by Fred Rodell
Lawyers quotes by Paul Goodman
#99. Freud pointed out, in his Problem of Lay Analysis , that it is extremely unlikely that a young man who would throw the best years of his life into the cloistered drudgery of getting an M.D. degree, could possibly make a good psychoanalyst; so he preferred to look for young analysts among the writers, the lawyers, the mothers of families, those who had chosen human contact. But in their economic wisdom, the Psychoanalytic Institute of Vienna (and New York) overruled him. #Quote by Paul Goodman
Lawyers quotes by Benicio Del Toro
#100. My grandfather was a lawyer, my dad was a lawyer, my mum was a lawyer, I got an uncle who's a lawyer, I got cousins that are lawyers. #Quote by Benicio Del Toro
Lawyers quotes by Laura Wasser
#101. To find a pool of lawyers from whom to choose, solicit referrals from other professionals you know or deal with - an accountant, banker or business leader. Check out Bar Association listings as well, and don't neglect Internet research. #Quote by Laura Wasser
Lawyers quotes by Deborah Harkness
#102. Sol in Sagittarius

Sagittarius governs faith, religion, writings, bookes, and the interpretation of dreames.
Those born under the signe of the archer shall work great wonders and receive much honour and joye.
While Sagittarius rules the heavens, consult with lawyers about thy business.
It is a good season for making oaths and striking bargains. #Quote by Deborah Harkness
Lawyers quotes by Benjamin Franklin
#103. A countryman between two lawyers is like a fish between two cats. #Quote by Benjamin Franklin
Lawyers quotes by Robert Louis Stevenson
#104. It was by this time about nine in the morning, and the first fog of the season. A great chocolate-colored pall lowered over heaven, but the wind was continually charging and routing these embattled vapors; so that as the cab crawled from street to street, Mr. Utterson beheld a marvelous number of degrees and hues of twilight; for here it would be dark like the black end of evening; and there would be a glow of a rich, lurid brown, like the light of some strange conflagration; and here for a moment, the fog would be quite broken up and a haggard shaft of daylight would glance in between the swirling wreaths. The dismal quarter of Soho seen under these changing glimpses, with its muddy ways, and slatternly passengers, and its lamps, which had never been extinguished or had been kindled afresh to combat this mournful reinvasion of darkness, seemed, in the lawyer's eyes, like a district of some city in a nightmare. #Quote by Robert Louis Stevenson
Lawyers quotes by Hermann Hesse
#105. Perhaps I was mad, as I thought at moments; perhaps I was not like other men? But I was able to do the same things the others did; with a little effort and industry I could read Plato, was able to solve problems in trigonometry or follow a chemical analysis. These was only one thing I could not do: wrest the dark secret goal from myself and keep it before me as others did who knew exactly what they wanted to be- professors, lawyers, doctors, artists, however long this would take them and whatever difficulties and advantages this decision would bear in its wake. This I could not do. Perhaps I would become something similar but how was I to know? Perhaps I would have to continue my search for years on end and would not become anything, and would not reach a goal. Perhaps I would reach this goal but it would turn out to be an evil, dangerous, horrible one? #Quote by Hermann Hesse
Lawyers quotes by Alan Dershowitz
#106. I think that lawyers are terrible at admitting that they're wrong. And not just admitting it; also realizing it. Most lawyers are very successful, and they think that because they're making money and people think well of them, they must be doing everything right. #Quote by Alan Dershowitz
Lawyers quotes by Dale Dauten
#107. Criticizing lawyers for lawsuits is like criticizing linebackers for knocking people down. #Quote by Dale Dauten
Lawyers quotes by Jessi Klein
#108. Everyone wants to say they hate lawyers, and yet I've never met a parent who didn't want their kid to be a lawyer. #Quote by Jessi Klein
Lawyers quotes by Lawrence Lederman
#109. Here, paper shuffling was treated seriously, and as a task of great difficulty. #Quote by Lawrence Lederman
Lawyers quotes by Alfred Nobel
#110. Lawyers have to make a living, and can only do so by inducing people to believe that a straight line is crooked. #Quote by Alfred Nobel
Lawyers quotes by Jodi Picoult
#111. You know, if you monitored the humidity a little better in here, you might reduce the irritants.'
'I assume you're referring to the mites, and not the lawyers. #Quote by Jodi Picoult
Lawyers quotes by Spencer W. Kimball
#112. Who is to blame? The filth peddler, of course, but even more than this vulgar entertainer, the filth consumer, the public. So long as men are corrupt and revel in sewer filth, entertainers will sell them what they want. Laws may be passed, arrests may be made, lawyers may argue, courts may sentence and jails may harbor men of corrupt minds, but pornography and allied insults to decency will never cease until men have cleansed their minds and cease to require and pay for such vile stuff. When the customer is sick and tired of being drowned in filth by the comedians, he will not pay for that filth and its source will dry up. #Quote by Spencer W. Kimball
Lawyers quotes by Pierre Bayle
#113. Do you doubt that the least effects of nature were not used as marks of the wrath of heaven? It was to the interest of pontiffs, priests, and augurs, as much as it is to the interest of lawyers and doctors that there should be lawsuits and sickness. No wonder they took care that the people should not grow slack in their religion. #Quote by Pierre Bayle
Lawyers quotes by David Brin
#114. Again, how will we keep them loyal? What measures can ensure our machines stay true to us? Once artificial intelligence matches our own, won't they then design even better ai minds? Then better still, with accelerating pace? At worst, might they decide (as in many cheap dramas), to eliminate their irksome masters? At best, won't we suffer the shame of being nostalgically tolerated? Like senile grandparents or beloved childhood pets? Solutions? Asimov proposed Laws of Robotics embedded at the level of computer DNA, weaving devotion toward humanity into the very stuff all synthetic minds are built from, so deep it can never be pulled out. But what happens to well-meant laws? Don't clever lawyers construe them however they want? Authors like Asimov and Williamson foresaw supersmart mechanicals becoming all-dominant, despite deep programming to "serve man. #Quote by David Brin
Lawyers quotes by Ziad K. Abdelnour
#115. The question is not whether we should or should not regulate; it
is how much should we regulate and who the regulators should
be. We went overboard on deregulation under Reagan. Under
Bush, many people lost in the casino. Now we have the Obama
administration overreacting and overreaching with regulation that
does the exact opposite of wealth creation. If we are to have change
we can believe in, then we could start by replacing the majority
of the lawyers in regulatory agencies with actual experienced, successful
business veterans. They would have recognized the early warning
signs of many of the financial debacles created by the bubble-bust
cycle. #Quote by Ziad K. Abdelnour
Lawyers quotes by Franz Kafka
#116. Anyway, it's best not to think about them, as if you do it makes the discussions with the other lawyers, all their advice and all that they do manage to achieve, seem so unpleasant and useless, I had that experience myself, just wanted to throw everything away and lay at home in bed and hear nothing more about it. But that, of course, would be the stupidest thing you could do, and you wouldn't be left in peace in bed for very long either. #Quote by Franz Kafka
Lawyers quotes by Naomi Novik
#117. (Temeraire:) "Can one hire a translator to say things properly?"
"Yes; they are called lawyers," Tharkay said, and laughed softly to himself. #Quote by Naomi Novik
Lawyers quotes by Agona Apell
#118. The law is not an ass but a chameleon in ass skin: it turns deathly black when around blacks and pristine white when around whites #Quote by Agona Apell
Lawyers quotes by William Shakespeare
#119. I have neither the scholar's melancholy, which is emulation; nor the musician's, which is fantastical; nor the courtier's, which is proud; not the soldier's which is ambitious; nor the lawyer's, which is politic; nor the lady's, which is nice; nor the lover's, which is all these: but it is a melancholy of mine own, compounded of many simples, extracted from many objects, and indeed the sundry contemplation of my travels, which, by often rumination, wraps me in a most humorous sadness. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Lawyers quotes by Margaret Deland
#120. Lawyers make their cake by cooking up other people's troubles. #Quote by Margaret Deland
Lawyers quotes by Dick Cavett
#121. Lawyers work hard and, like us, they're human, many of them. #Quote by Dick Cavett
Lawyers quotes by Robin D. Hart
#122. Change cannot and will not happen overnight. But the intent to evolve will produce opportunities for growth. #Quote by Robin D. Hart
Lawyers quotes by George Crabbe
#123. "Lawyers Are": By law's dark by-ways he has stored his mind with wicked knowledge on how to cheat mankind. #Quote by George Crabbe
Lawyers quotes by Ross Macdonald
#124. The apparent facts, if you like. I'm not a philosopher. We lawyers don't deal in ultimate realities. Who knows what they are? We deal in appearances. #Quote by Ross Macdonald
Lawyers quotes by Felix Rohatyn
#125. Beware of lawyers and consultants and people who do not take risks and who do not get their hands dirty. #Quote by Felix Rohatyn
Lawyers quotes by Marsha Blackburn
#126. Women are running companies, serving as the human resource director of companies, and helping employees solve problems. Women are doctors, lawyers, teachers, sales managers, marketers. They handle problems in the workplace by day and manage their families by night. #Quote by Marsha Blackburn
Lawyers quotes by Dave Barry
#127. I am not one to generalize, but cartoonists, as a group, exhibit a level of social sophistication generally associated with pie fights. In high school, when the future lawyers were campaigning for class president, the future cartoonists were painstakingly altering illustrations in their history books so that Robert E. Lee appeared to be performing an illegal act with his horse. #Quote by Dave Barry
Lawyers quotes by Julian Barnes
#128. I had a friend who trained as a lawyer, then became disenchanted and never practiced. He told me that the one benefit of those wasted years was that he no longer feared either the law or lawyers. #Quote by Julian Barnes
Lawyers quotes by Rick Riordan
#129. She hissed in frustration. "I hate eidolons. I thought Piper made them promise to stay away." "Oh ... " Frank said, like he'd just had his own daily happy thought. "Piper made them promise to stay off the ship and not possess any of us. But if they followed us, and used other bodies to attack us, then they're not technically breaking their vow. ... " "Great," Leo muttered. "Eidolons who are also lawyers. Now I really want to kill them. #Quote by Rick Riordan
Lawyers quotes by Alberto Gonzales
#130. We're talking about the lawyers for the United States of America. And I think it's very, very important that the lawyers be comfortable being very candid and open about their views on very sensitive issues affecting the United States. #Quote by Alberto Gonzales
Lawyers quotes by Jon Kyl
#131. The key thing is to ensure that we give the criminal-justice system the tools it needs, so that women's rights are turned into reality. It is not enough to say domestic violence is a crime ?- in order for the laws to be successful, lawyers and courts must have the necessary means to prosecute it. #Quote by Jon Kyl
Lawyers quotes by Julia Penelope
#132. As for us, we saw the police as a natural catastrophe - like floods, fires, earthquakes. There was nothing you could do about these things except to try and escape them. We had no analysis, no understanding that society could be changed. We simply tried to survive, as ourselves, as kamp girls, natural rebels. We did not feel that the police might not be entitled to hunt us, but accepted them as inevitable.

I was beaten up for suggesting that a woman ask for a lawyer. It was seem as a stupid - even dangerous - suggestion. Fighting back with threats of lawyers would only make the police even angrier at us. But part of me felt that what was happening was unfair and unjust, though I had no idea how things could ever be different.

Melbourne and Adelaide were exactly the same. The public lesbian scene was dangerous and difficult. There were many other New Zealand lesbians around, too. In spite of everything, I loved it. The "mateship" was amazing and close, important enough for any risk. And the freedom to be ourselves, to be real, to be queer, affirmed us.

There were private, closeted scenes too, but they were hard to find and cliquey. They were fearful of being "sprung" by kamps who were too obvious. They were mainly older middle-class women. I knew some of them, learnt many things from them - like how to behave in a nice restaurant if you are taken to dinner. But they too had no sense of anything being able to change - except for the one str #Quote by Julia Penelope
Lawyers quotes by Peter Brimelow
#133. If you are unfortunate enough to be involved in legal action, you've got to realize that it's a three-way fight: There's you, there's your opponent, and there's your lawyer. And your lawyer is not on your side. His job is to get as much money as possible out of you, frequently in collusion with the other side's lawyer, and then move on to another client. #Quote by Peter Brimelow
Lawyers quotes by Gina Prince-Bythewood
#134. When 'The Cosby Show' came out, and everyone was up in arms about 'The Cosby Show' and that it was reflecting a world that didn't exist - but I knew black doctors. And I knew black lawyers. And I knew families that, you know, had a mother and a father and kids that were well-behaved. #Quote by Gina Prince-Bythewood
Lawyers quotes by Walter E. Williams
#135. If there's a distinct group of Americans who harbor open contempt for constitutional principles and rule of law, it's lawyers, judges and members of Congress. #Quote by Walter E. Williams
Lawyers quotes by James Gosling
#136. During the integration meetings between Sun and Oracle, where we were being grilled about the patent situation between Sun and Google, we could see the Oracle lawyer's eyes sparkle. #Quote by James Gosling
Lawyers quotes by Barbara W. Tuchman
#137. Doctors were admired, lawyers universally hated and mistrusted. #Quote by Barbara W. Tuchman
Lawyers quotes by Paul Watson
#138. Who should have children? Those who are responsible and completely dedicated to the responsibility which is actually a very small percentage of humans. Being a parent should be a career. Whereas some people are engineers, musicians, or lawyers, others with the desire and the skills can be fathers and mothers. Schools can be eliminated if the professional parent is also the educator of the child. #Quote by Paul Watson
Lawyers quotes by Steven Brill
#139. When it comes to arrogance, power, and lack of accountability, journalists are probably the only people on the planet who make lawyers look good. #Quote by Steven Brill
Lawyers quotes by Philip Roth
#140. I never wanted to be Protestant. Jews do, plenty of them. Not me. To be assimilated, to be respectable, to be detached like the Wasps, I understand the desire, but I knew never to try. I see all those distinguished Wasps with the beautiful gray hair and the pinstripe suits who don't have pimples on their ass. They're my lawyers ... These guys are quiet. I don't want to be that way. I couldn't begin to be that way. I'm the wild Jew of the pampas. I am the Golem of the U.S.A. #Quote by Philip Roth
Lawyers quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#141. Others
as most legislators, politicians, lawyers, ministers, and office-holders
serve the state chiefly with their heads; and, as they rarely make any moral distinctions, they are as likely to serve the devil, without intending it, as God. A very few
as heroes, patriots, martyrs, reformers in the great sense, and men
serve the state with their consciences also, and so necessarily resist it for the most part ... #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Lawyers quotes by Robert Pozen
#142. From the law firm's perspective, billing by the hour has a certain appeal: it shifts risk from the firm to the client in case the work takes longer than expected. But from a client's perspective, it doesn't work so well. It gives lawyers an incentive to overstaff and to overresearch cases. #Quote by Robert Pozen
Lawyers quotes by George Strait
#143. I got ex's all across the country and I owe everybody in town. I got bill collectors a callin' me up, and lawyers trying to track me down. #Quote by George Strait
Lawyers quotes by Shepard Fairey
#144. The problem with copyright enforcement is that when the parameters aren't incredibly well defined, it means big corporations, who have deeper pockets and better lawyers, can bully people. #Quote by Shepard Fairey
Lawyers quotes by Kim Barker
#145. Is something wrong?" shouted one of the lawyers inside.

"Yeah, something's wrong. These guys keep grabbing me."

He sighed and whispered something to lawyers outside the Pajero. Half a dozen then walked over to me, surrounding my rear flank, trying to protect it. But they were as effective as the country's legal system. The hands kept poking holes in their defenses. I kept spinning around, screaming, gesturing like I was conducting an orchestra on speed, randomly catching hands mid-pinch and then hitting the offenders.

I was creating a scene. This time, the door of the Pajero popped open.

"Kim. Get in," the lawyer said.

This was unexpected. Every journalist I knew had been trying to get inside this vehicle for months. None had. But somehow, where skills, talent, and perseverance had failed, my unremarkable ass had delivered. #Quote by Kim Barker
Lawyers quotes by Neil Postman
#146. Perhaps we should abandon the whole idea of trying to make students intelligent and focus on the idea of making them less ignorant. Doctors do not generally concern themselves with health; they concentrate on sickness. And lawyers don't think too much about justice; they think about cases of injustice. Using this model in teaching would imply identifying and understanding various forms of ignorance and working to eliminate as many of them as we can. #Quote by Neil Postman
Lawyers quotes by Will Rogers
#147. People are getting smarter nowadays; they are letting lawyers, instead of their conscience, be their guide. #Quote by Will Rogers
Lawyers quotes by Lani Guinier
#148. Most people ask questions because they want to know the answer; lawyers are trained never to ask questions unless they already know the answer. #Quote by Lani Guinier
Lawyers quotes by John Leguizamo
#149. After kids leave the house, they can decide to do whatever they want, but while they're under my roof, they're going to be lawyers or writers or something, something important, anything except actors. #Quote by John Leguizamo
Lawyers quotes by Thomas Hardy
#150. When I want a broad-minded opinion for general enlightenment, distinct from special advice, I never go to a man who deals in the subject professionally. So I like the parson's opinion on law, the lawyer's on doctoring, the doctor's on business, and my business-man's ... on morals. #Quote by Thomas Hardy
Lawyers quotes by William Landay
#151. This is an aspect of crime stories I never fully appreciated until I became one: it is so ruinously expensive to mount a defense that, innocent or guilty, the accusation is itself a devastating punishment. Every defendant pays a price. #Quote by William Landay
Lawyers quotes by David                  Owen
#152. Water problems in the western United States, when viewed from afar, can seem tantalizingly easy to solve: all we need to do is turn off the fountains at the Bellagio, stop selling hay to China, ban golf, cut down the almond trees, and kill all the lawyers. #Quote by David Owen
Lawyers quotes by Sarah Bakewell
#153. Many authors also attacked the widespread corruption among lawyers. In general, justice was recognized as being so unjust that, as Montaigne complained, ordinary people avoided it rather than seeking it out. He cited a local incident in which a group of peasants found a man lying stabbed and bleeding on a path. He begged them to give him water and help him to his feet, but they ran off, not daring to touch him in case they were held responsible for the attack. Montaigne had the job of talking to them after they were tracked down. "What could I say to them?" he wrote. They were right to be afraid. In another case he mentions, a gang of killers confessed to a murder for which someone had already been tried and was about to be executed. Surely this ought to mean a stay of execution? No, decided the court: that would set a dangerous precedent for overturning judgments. #Quote by Sarah Bakewell
Lawyers quotes by Bruce Jenvey
#154. Dear, Mr. Ajax ... don't ye know ... the fires of Hell are stoked by righteous lawyers! Tis a fact it is. All that hot air ... How'd ya think they get that Brimstone so hot?
Old Tom Goodling from Angela's Coven #Quote by Bruce Jenvey
Lawyers quotes by Dorothy Fields
#155. There aren't more lady songwriters for the same reason that there aren't more lady doctors or lady accountants or lady lawyers; not enough women have the time for careers. #Quote by Dorothy Fields
Lawyers quotes by Javier Bardem
#156. As an actor, you can't judge. A great actress from Spain said, "We, the actors, are lawyers of the characters we play. We have to defend them, no matter what." #Quote by Javier Bardem
Lawyers quotes by Simon Lelic
#157. All you know is what I told you.'
Philip nodded. 'That's right.'
'So did it occur to you that I might have left something out? That I might only have told you the evidence that supported the case I was trying to make? #Quote by Simon Lelic
Lawyers quotes by Timothy Keller
#158. Without an understanding of common grace, Christians will believe they can live self-sufficiently within their own cultural enclave. Some might feel that we should go only to Christian doctors, work only with Christian lawyers, listen only to Christian counselors, or enjoy only Christian artists. Of course, all non-believers have seriously impaired spiritual vision. Yet so many of the gifts God has put in the world are given to nonbelievers. Mozart was a gift to us - whether he was a believer or not. So Christians are free to study the world of human culture in order to know more of God; for as creatures made in His image we can appreciate truth and wisdom wherever we find it. #Quote by Timothy Keller
Lawyers quotes by Michael Ignatieff
#159. The wars of the future will be fought by computer technicians and by lawyers and high-altitude specialists, and that may mean war will be increasingly abstract, hard to think about and hard to control. #Quote by Michael Ignatieff
Lawyers quotes by Susanna Clarke
#160. It is, after all, many centuries since clergymen distinguished themselves on the field of war, and lawyers never have. #Quote by Susanna Clarke
Lawyers quotes by Yuval Noah Harari
#161. Modern business-people and lawyers are, in fact, powerful sorcerers. The principal difference between them and tribal shamans is that modern lawyers tell far stranger tales. #Quote by Yuval Noah Harari
Lawyers quotes by Barton Gellman
#162. It was one thing to say the president's politically appointed lawyers green-lighted domestic surveillance. It was another to claim a go-ahead from career civil servants, unbeholden to the White House. #Quote by Barton Gellman
Lawyers quotes by Gail Anderson-Dargatz
#163. I think writers are a lot like lawyers. We feed off the misfortunes of people, even ourselves. #Quote by Gail Anderson-Dargatz
Lawyers quotes by Carl Bernstein
#164. Deep Throat stamped his foot. 'A conspiracy like this ... a conspiracy investigation ... the rope has to tighten slowly around everyone's neck. You build convincingly from the outer edges in, you get ten times the evidence you need against the Hunts and the Liddys. They feel hopelessly finished - they may not talk right away, but the grip is on them. Then you move up and do the same thing at the next level. If you shoot too high and miss, the everyone feels more secure. Lawyers work this way. I'm sure smart reporters must, too. You've put the investigation back months. It puts everyone on the defensive - editors, FBI agents, everybody has to go into a crouch after this.'
Woodward swallowed hard. He deserved the lecture.
Carl Bernstein, Bob Woodward #Quote by Carl Bernstein
Lawyers quotes by Michael Thomas Ford
#165. I don't know why anyone wants to get married," said Burke. "I think the whole thing was cooked up by lawyers so they can get rich off of divorce. #Quote by Michael Thomas Ford
Lawyers quotes by Scott Weiland
#166. Not sure how I can be 'terminated' from a band that I founded, fronted and co-wrote many of their biggest hits. But that's something for the lawyers to figure out. #Quote by Scott Weiland
Lawyers quotes by Ling  Ma
#167. We were brand strategists and property lawyers and human resources specialists and personal finance consultants. We didn't know how to do anything so we Googled everything. #Quote by Ling Ma
Lawyers quotes by Harry Jones
#168. Somehow it must be made plain that the lawyer's moral judgment is not for hire, that there are occasions when the lawyer ... is under a duty to act as a person of independent ethical concern with obligations not only to his client's interests but also to fairness and justice in the management of affairs. #Quote by Harry Jones
Lawyers quotes by George Will
#169. So the Clinton-Gore era culminates with an election as stained as the blue dress, a Democratic chorus complaining that the Constitution should not be the controlling legal authority, and Clinton's understudy dispatching lawyers to litigate this: It depends on what the meaning of 'vote' is. #Quote by George Will
Lawyers quotes by Mark Forsyth
#170. The lawyer's lucky phrase is 'including but not limited to', which gets you out of the utterly unnecessary trouble that the unnecessary trouble merism got you into in the first place. #Quote by Mark Forsyth
Lawyers quotes by Percy Bysshe Shelley
#171. Confound the subtlety of lawyers with the subtlety of the law. #Quote by Percy Bysshe Shelley
Lawyers quotes by John Dos Passos
#172. Too goddam many lawyers mixed up in this. Run the sonsobitches out. If they resists shoot 'em, that's what I says to the Governor, but they're all these sonsobitches a lawyers fussin' everythin' up all the time with warrants and habeas corpus and longwinded rigmarole. My ass to habeas corpus. #Quote by John Dos Passos
Lawyers quotes by Virginia Woolf
#173. I have sometimes dreamt ... that when the Day of Judgment dawns and the great conquerors and lawyers and statesmen come to receive their rewards
their crowns, their laurels, their names carved indelibly upon imperishable marble
the Almighty will turn to Peter and will say, not without a certain envy when He sees us coming with our books under our arms, Look, these need no reward. We have nothing to give them here. They have loved reading. #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Lawyers quotes by Dennis E. Adonis
#174. A prisoner's shackles would always be a lawyers joy. #Quote by Dennis E. Adonis
Lawyers quotes by Gay Talese
#175. Interestingly, the historic case of 1868 in England that first defined obscenity-known among lawyers as the Hicklin decision- evolved out of the prosecution of a pamphlet describing how priests were often so sexually aroused while hearing women's confessions that they sometimes masturbated and even copulated with their repentant subjects in the confessional. #Quote by Gay Talese
Lawyers quotes by Marc Grossberg
#176. Margot Shears says to Paddy - on lawyers crossing the line: "You really think I would believe you did those things in furtherance of your duty to your client? Paddy, Paddy, Paddy. Shame on you. Nobody sins for somebody else. #Quote by Marc Grossberg
Lawyers quotes by Seneca.
#177. But," comes the reply, "I am being driven from the farm which my father and grandfather owned!" Well? Who owned the land before your grandfather? Can you explain what people (I will not say what person) held it originally? You did not enter upon it as a master, but merely as a tenant. And whose tenant are you? If your claim is successful, you are tenant of the heir. The lawyers say that public property cannot be acquired privately by possession;11 what you hold and call your own is public property - indeed, it belongs to mankind at large. #Quote by Seneca.
Lawyers quotes by Grady Booch
#178. In 2031, lawyers will be commonly a part of most development teams. #Quote by Grady Booch
Lawyers quotes by Jim DeMint
#179. But my bill, the Drill Now Act, would actually expedite the whole process, let the Interior Department move ahead quicker ... it would stop the radical environmental lawyers from delaying for years with frivolous lawsuits the leasing of the property. #Quote by Jim DeMint
Lawyers quotes by Charles Dickens
#180. We lawyers are always curious, always inquisitive, always picking up odds and ends for our patchwork minds, since there is no knowing when and where they may fit into some corner. #Quote by Charles Dickens
Lawyers quotes by Simon Callow
#181. Mostly, though, he made people laugh, with wicked impersonations of everyone around him: clients, lawyers, clerks, even the cleaning woman. When Pickwick Papers came out, his former colleagues realized that half of them had turned up in its pages. His eyes - eyes that everyone who ever met him, to the day he died, remarked on - beautiful, animated, warm, dreamy, flashing, sparkling - though no two people ever agreed on their colour - were they grey, green, blue, brown? - those eyes missed nothing, any more than did his ears. He could imitate anyone. Brimming over with an all but uncontainable energy, which the twenty-first century might suspiciously describe as manic, he discharged his superplus of vitality by incessantly walking the streets, learning London as he went, mastering it, memorizing the names of the roads, the local accents, noting the characteristic topographies of the many villages of which the city still consisted. #Quote by Simon Callow
Lawyers quotes by Peter Sotos
#182. I don't sell enough books to pay for the lawyers, however. And these various problems finally became too much. #Quote by Peter Sotos
Lawyers quotes by Agatha Christie
#183. Lawyers never go to law, do they? They know better. #Quote by Agatha Christie
Lawyers quotes by Scott Turow
#184. The fundamental tension of the profession is the struggle between bold advocacy of the client's interests and the need to establish and hold to limits that prevent advocacy from leading to irrational and inequitable results; and thus the lawyer's job in practice is to be on one hand the impassioned representative of his client to the world, and on the other the wise representative to his client of the legal system, and the society, explaining and upholding the demands and restrictions which that system places on them both. #Quote by Scott Turow
Lawyers quotes by Felix Frankfurter
#185. To some lawyers, all facts are created equal. #Quote by Felix Frankfurter
Lawyers quotes by Paul Bloom
#186. It might feel, at least to some of us, that our opinions about issues such as abortion and the death penalty are the products of careful deliberation and that our specific moral acts, such as deciding to give to charity or visit a friend in the hospital - or for that matter, deciding to shoplift or shout a racist insult out
of a car window - are grounded in conscious decision-making. But this is said to be mistaken. As Jonathan Haidt argues, we are not judges; we are lawyers, making up explanations after the deeds have been done. Reason is impotent. "We celebrate rationality," agrees de Waal, "but when push comes to shove we assign it little weight. #Quote by Paul Bloom
Lawyers quotes by David Webster

Lawyers quotes by Charles Bukowski
#200. We are
Born like this
Into this
Into these carefully mad wars
Into the sight of broken factory windows of emptiness
Into bars where people no longer speak to each other
Into fist fights that end as shootings and knifings
Born into this
Into hospitals which are so expensive that it's cheaper to die
Into lawyers who charge so much it's cheaper to plead guilty
Into a country where the jails are full and the madhouses closed
Into a place where the masses elevate fools into rich heroes #Quote by Charles Bukowski
