"It's true. We don't build bridges. We don't raise buildings. We don't make engines. We do not paint pictures except as amateurs for our own amusement. There is little of what we do that the human eye can see. We, however, smooth out the difficulties; we ease the tensions; we correct mistakes. We take on the burdens of other men and with our efforts we make possible the peaceful life of men in a peaceful state ”.

John W. Davis
speech at the Bar Association of New York, March 16, 1946

"Remember that brevity and clarity are the two qualities that the judge loves most in the lawyer's speech"
(Piero Calamandrei, "In praise of the judges written by a lawyer", 1954)

        “The client said in choosing the defender:« Eloquent and cunning: excellent lawyer »!
        The judge said in blaming him: "Big talker and trickster: bad lawyer!"
        "Piero Calamandrei"
        "What do you mean" great lawyer "? It means a lawyer useful for judges to help them decide according to justice, useful for the client to help him assert his reasons. Useful is that lawyer who speaks strictly necessary, who writes clearly and concisely, who does not clutter the hearing with his intrusive personality, who does not bore the judges with his prolixity and does not put them into suspicion with his subtlety: just the opposite, therefore, of what some public understands by "great lawyer". (Piero Calamandrei, "In praise of the judges written by a lawyer", 1954)
