“Forgive lawyers: Beneath that cold, harsh, impersonal exterior beats a cold, harsh, impersonal heart.”

– David Frost

A little laughter never hurt anyone . . . not even those jovial, light-hearted souls called lawyers. No matter how they may come off, rumor has it that they are actually human. And, too, what would we do without them? We would have no one to make jokes about that everyone laughs at. Seriously, we lawyers are the “grease between the rocks” that permit disputes to be resolved without violence. If your day entails interaction with one or more lawyers, don’t forget this insightful quote by David Frost. Maybe there is a good reason they attended law school . . . after all, what else would we do with them if they didn’t?

This quote was shared recently during a long, boring Court conference by one of its participants . . . it perked up the whole legal crowd, including the Judge!! Thank you, Eduardo: that laughter kept me – and everyone else in the Courtroom – alert and alive until the end of the day. Now . . . who should we bill for that laugh-time?
