Some of my favorite quotes – by myself and others.

Do not fire unless fired upon – but if they want a war, let it begin here – American General on sighting British Troops.

The criminal Laywer

Who is a criminal lawyer? A lawyer who is a criminal? Or a criminal who is a laywer? In fact, a criminal laywer is a lawyer who represents criminals with the aim of freeing them from punishment. So I guess that makes them both criminals. And while two wrongs don’t make a right, do two criminals make one guiltless? — Patrick Carpen

This is one of the most beautiful quotes I have ever read anywhere. I first came across it in the Portuguese langauge and translated it into English because I will be “quoting” it.

“Nao tenho Vergonha das minha cicatrizes. Elas provam que foi mais forte do que aquilo que tentou me destruir”.

– I’m not ashamed of my scars. They prove that I was stronger than those who tried to destroy me. – Translated from Portuguese by Patrick Carpen.

 The world is full of monsters with friendly faces & angels full of Scars. – Shirlain George

Life is like a camera: you focus on what’s important, develop from the negative, and if it doesn’t work out, take another shot. – Rahab Stephens

The epitome of human civilization is on the verge of precipitation. Patrick Carpen – Dec 27 2016

this is magnificent blog. An excellent read. I’ll certainly be back.
