Great Legal Quote of the Day: Charles Dickens

John G. Mateus, Esq.

“….the law supposes that your wife acts under your direction.”

“If the law supposes that,” said Mr. Bumble, squeezing his hat emphatically in both hands, “the law is an ass — an idiot. If that’s the eye of the law, the law is a bachelor; and the worst I wish the law is, that his eye may be opened by experience — by experience.”

–Charles Dickens, Oliver Twist, 1838.
