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
