1)     I don’t want a lawyer to tell me what I cannot do; I hire him to tell me how to do what I want to do. J. Pierpoint Morgan, 1837-1913, American banker and financier 我不想听律师告诉我什么不能做;我聘用他是想让他告诉我如何做我想做的事。

2)     I don’t think you can make a lawyer honest by an act of legislature. You’ve got to work on his conscience. And his lack of conscience is what makes him a lawyer. Will Rogers, 1879-1935, American humorist and social commentator, Sacramento, California, 1927 我认为你无法靠立法机构的法令使律师诚实。你得努力让他有良心。而他能成为律师正是因为他缺乏良心。

3)   For certain people, after fifty, litigation takes the place of sex. Gore Vidal, American novelist and essayist Evening Standard, 1981 对一些人来说,过了50岁,性就被官司替代了。

4)     Did you hear about the terrorist who hijacked a 747 full of lawyers? He threatened to release one every hour until his demands were met. Anon. 你听说过吗?恐怖分子劫持了一架747客机,乘客全是律师。他威胁说若是不满足他的要求,他就每隔一小时释放一律师。

5)     Why Experiment on Animals With So Many Lawyers Out There? Anon, bumper sticker, Key West, 1997 律师那么多,干吗要用动物做实验?

6)     You’ve heard about the man who got the bill from his lawyer which said, ‘For crossing the street to speak to you and discovering it was not you….twelve dollars.’ George S. Kaufman, 1889-1961, American playwright and critic 你已听说过,有个人收到他律师的账单,上面写着:过马路去与你谈话,发现不是你……12美元。

7)   He works 8 hours a day and sleeps 8 hours a day—the same 8 hours. Milton Berle, 1908-2002, American actor and comedian 他每天工作8小时,每天睡觉8小时——在同一个8小时里。

8)   My husband has always felt that marriage and career don’t mix; that’s why he’s never worked. Phyllis Diller, American comedienne 我丈夫总是觉得婚姻与事业不能混在一起;这就是为什么他从未上班。

9)   It is impossible to enjoy idling thoroughly unless one has plenty of work to do. Jerome k. Jerome, Idle Thoughts of an idle Fellow, 1886 一个人不可能彻底享受清闲,除非他有很多工作要做。

10) I must follow them. I am their leader. Andrew Bonar Law, 1858-1923, Canadian-born Conservative Prime Minister, 1922-23 (Attrib.) 我必须追随他们。我是他们的领导。
