BL Line Of The Night

We all hate our clients. It's good to hate. It allows us to overcharge and still sleep at night.

What a pregnant line. That's good dialogue.

Inevitably, we become what we are. If you practice love in your life, you become loving. If you give way to hate, ultimately there is no joy. That's why there are so many joyless lawyers. Way too much cognitive dissonance in that line of work.

The only happy lawyers who I ever met weren't practicing law.

then that would make them.......not lawyers!!!!!

a rabbit and a snake, both blind from birth, and not knowing what they were, bumped into each other every day in a field as they crossed. on one occasion, they stopped and explained their predicament to each other. using this as an opportunity to discover each others identity as well as their own, the snake wrapped itself around the rabbit. they then proceeded to describe each other thusly. the snake said you are furry, soft, big ears, cold nose, large hind legs.....you must be a rabbit. the rabbit was overjoyed at hearing this. the rabbit said, you are slimy, scaly, you have a forked tongue, but lack a backbone.....you must be a lawyer.
