I collect quotes and snippets.
“Many [New York City co-operative apartment building managing agents] promote arbitration and mediation. This would prevent cases like the recent one in which $130,000 in legal fees were exhausted to decide who should pay for window bars costing $924.” — The New York Times, October, 1995
I like this one because I’m working this month to help California pass three ballot measures — Props 200, 201, and 202 — that would modestly discourage unnecessary litigation.
”Don’t worry about people stealing your ideas. If your ideas are any good, you’ll have to ram them down people’s throats.” — Howard Aiken
Part of the problem we’re having in California.
“If you think it’s messy there,” said Albert Einstein of his paper-strewn office, “you should see it up here,” he smiled, pointing to his head.
If only we could get him to endorse our three Propositions. We have the chairman of Intel and the co-creator of Quicken and the co-creator of Managing Your Money (well, me) and Peter Norton of Norton Utilities and half the CEOs in Silicon Valley. But Einstein? Can you imagine the weight he would carry in the high tech community? And in the community at large? The lawyers have Ralph Nader on their side, and that sways a lot of people (it used to sway me, too, but on this issue Ralph is wrong). But Einstein? No contest. Einstein would score a first-round knock out.
