Great Legal Quote of the Day: Shakespeare

John G. Mateus, Esq.

“Why, may not that be the skull of a lawyer? Where be his quiddities now, his quillities, his cases, his tenures, and his tricks? Why does he suffer this mad knave now to knock him about the sconce with a dirty shovel, and will not tell him of his action of battery? Hum!”

—William Shakespeare, Hamlet, Act 5, Scene 1.
