I think we may class the lawyer in the same natural history of Monsters; a green bag will hold as much as a lawn sleeve.
I do not believe in lawyers, in that mode of attacking or defending a man, because you descend to meet the judge on his own ground, and, in cases of the highest importance, it is of no consequence whether a man breaks a human law or not. Let lawyers decide trivial cases.
Every peasant has a lawyer inside of him, just as every lawyer, no matter how urbane he may be, carries a peasant within himself.[Todo aldeano lleva un abogado dentro, así como todo abogado, por muy ciudadano que sea, lleva al rústico.]
