- The arms which an advocate wields he ought to use as a warrior, not as an assassin. He ought to uphold the interests of his clients per fas, not per nefas. He ought to know how to reconcile the interests of his clients with the eternal interests of truth and justice. permalink
quoted in The Times, London (9 November 1864)
- The weapon of the advocate is the sword of the soldier, not the dagger of the assassin. permalink
quoted by his court reporter in "Cockburn" in A Generation of Judges (1886)
