Henry Van Dyke

A desire to be in charge of our own lives, a need for control, is born in each of us. It is essential to our mental health, and our success, that we take control.
Robert Foster Bennett

Every trial lawyer knows what it is like to sit patiently while the other side puts on its case.

Good Deeds Day is based on a simple idea that every person can do a good deed for the benefit of others and the planet. Even a smile that brightens someone else's day is a good deed.
