The highly competitive practice of law has a way of shaping a person. If you let it, it can and it will make you into a thing;...That thing the practice of law would make of you is ultimately what becomes of the once passionate, once idealistic, once hopeful, would-be world changer, who has become eroded by the routine, battering current of the practice, and who has failed to cultivate the ground cover that resists erosion of soul." For those of us in the world of work, whether as lawyers or not, tending to that initial force that drew us toward the study of law should be part of our thoughts and periodic reflections.
