There Is No Success Without Labor Or Effort by Keith Lee.
"People often want to put a happy face on the practice of law. Push for work-life balance. But being a lawyer is hard work. If you want to find some measure of success as a lawyer, it is going to require labor and effort."
Nothing worth gaining is ever gained without effort. You can no more have freedom without striving and suffering for it than you can win success as a banker or a lawyer without labor and effort, without self-denial in youth and the display of a ready and alert intelligence in middle age.
Theodore Roosevelt, Duties of an American Citizen, Buffalo, New York, January 26, 1883
"It was true 140 years ago, it’s true today, and will be true a 100 years from now. No short cuts. Just do the work.
