Quote from Abraham Lincoln 

"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."

(1809-1865) 16th US President
