As a peacemaker the lawyer has a superior opportunity of being a good man. There will still be business enough.
Página 26 - Abe read every book he could lay his hands on ;-and when he came across a passage that struck him, he would write it down on boards if he had no paper, and keep it there until he did get paper. Then he would re-write it, look at it, and repeat it. He had a copy-book, a kind of scrap-book, in which he put down all things, and thus preserved them.
