The legal issues we will blog about are those that our clients are concerned about. We practice law as an art form across a broad canvas guided by what creates happiness and achievement. That perspective never ceases. Along the way we have accumulated several philosophical insights which have served as stepping stones. These insights are reflected in the following quotations:


  •  “It is neither wealth nor splendor but tranquility and occupation which give happiness.”

            Thomas Jefferson

  • “Laws, like the law of causation, treat of the network and not of what the network describes.”


  • “Where there is love and inspiration, I don’t think you can go wrong.”

           Ella Fitzgerald

  •     “The highest good is like water, for the good of water is that it nourishes everything without striving.   Nothing in the world is weaker than water, But it has no better in overcoming the hard.”


  • “When water is still, it is like a mirror, reflecting the beard and the eyebrows.  It gives the accuracy of the water-level, and the philosopher makes it his model. And if water thus derives lucidity from stillness, how much more the faculties of the mind?”


  •  “The art of life is …more like navigation than warfare, for what is important is to understand the winds, the tides, the currents, the seasons, and the principles of growth and decay, so that one’s actions may use them and not fight them….like a (carpenter )going with the grain.”

          Alan Watts

  •  “The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.”

         Eleanor Roosevelt
