In Search of Pride in our Profession

I would like to share a quote by Edmund Burke (political philosopher) that I recently read: "No other profession is more closely connected with actual life than the law. It concerns the highest of all temporal interests of man--property, reputation, the peace of families, the arbitrations and peace of nations, liberty, life even, and the very foundations of society."

When I fear I am turning into a monster of my profession, I am relieved to find inspiring words, like those from Mr. Burke, to remind me of why I worked hard to become a lawyer in the first place.
