The client thumped his crutch on the ground as he confronted his lawyer. "Heavens, man, your bill is outrageous! You are taking three-fifths of my settlement. I never heard of such extortion."
"I furnished the skill, the eloquence and the necessary legal learning for your case," said the lawyer coolly.
"Yes," said the client, "but I furnished the case itself."
"Bosh," sneered the lawyer. "Anyone could fall down a deep hole."
A long winded attorney was arguing a technical case before one of the judges of the superior courts. The attorney had rambled on in such a desultory way that it became very difficult to follow his line of thought, and the judge had just yawned very suggestively.
With a trace of sarcasm in his voice, the tiresome attorney ventured to observe: "I sincerely trust that I am not unduly trespassing on the time of this court."
"My friend," returned his honor, "there is considerable difference between trespassing on time and encroaching upon eternity."
