Fighting for the Law

“The people should fight for their law as if defending the city’s wall.” –Heraclitus of Ephesus, Fragment 100″ This quote was so inspirational that one lawyer got it tattooed on his arm in the original Greek (scroll down). The Fragments can be found here with the Greek and English side-by-side, for those interested.

Short Stories

John Collier’s The Chaser, in which a young man learns the relative price of love and death. Herman Melville’s Bartleby the Scrivener, a tale of maddening politeness in the office. Enjoy.
