Welcome to the
Images Of Justice Quarterly. #1

 
Inspirational images, anecdotes and quotes for the legal profession.
 
Atticus Finch

 

This issue featuring Atticus Finch and the symbolism of names.

We all love Harper Lee's To Kill a Mocking Bird and the values it inspires. But have you ever considered how the character's names are so cleverly, yet simply chosen to represent their roles within this remarkable parable.
Scout, or Miss Jean Louise, is truly our scout, who seeks the truth and guides us through the narration. Jem is the multi faceted rough cut jewel of innocence, a gem to be polished to reveal his true potential. Dill (Truman Capote in real life) is the spice that stirs the pot and sets the story in motion. In history, Atticus was a close friend of Cicero and, like the novel's hero, renowned for his sound judgment. He also had one son and one daughter.

 

Names such as these are called aptronyms and in the legal profession perhaps the most striking is that of the New York judicial philosopher and Appeals Court Judge, Learned Hand. Renowned for his clarity of legal expession and his defense of civil liberties and free speech he more than lived up to his aptly chosen name. On the other side of the bench, Bernie Madoff comes to mind. Isn't he the man who made off with so many people's hard earned money?

Whose heart does not leap as a dejected Atticus Finch turns to leave the courtroom. The Reverend Sykes leans down to Scout as the Afro-American community, segregated upstairs on the balcony, rises in profound respect for this courageous attorney of conscience. Miss Jean Louise, Stand up! Your father's passin'.

 

 
QUARTERLY QUOTE:
The one thing that doesn't abide by majority rule
is a person's conscience. Atticus Finch.
 

 
Conscience
 
Conscience.
Even when there is no law there is conscience.
Reflected in her mirror she walks a narrow path bordered with flowers and thorns, between the way of an all too easy moral sense and the difficult route of a still and quiet conscience

Original painting on arches aquarelle. 1995.
In the private collection of Michael and Gloria Neville. Ottawa.

Welcome to the Images Of Justice Quarterly. #2 

 

Inspirational images,

 Theodore Roosevelt                                                                                        
This issue featuring Theodore Roosevelt's
speech MAN IN THE ARENA

 
Original painting on canvas. 32" x 40". 2011 . 
In the private collection of John Romano.
Lake Worth. Florida. click here to view inspirational video.

1910 and former President of the United States, Theodore Roosevelt, arrives in Paris at the invitation of the Sorbonne to speak on Citizenship in a Republic. Received to rapturous applause, a fragment of this speech still resounds today. It is known as:

The Man In The Arena.

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.

This passage, extolling the virtues of action and engagement for a worthy cause, the necessity of trial and error, the triumph of courage and determination in the face of adversity, truly reflects the prevaling ethos of the trial lawyer community today.

Roosevelt was the first President:

 

  • to fly in an airplane
  • to be submerged in a submarine
  • to own a car
  • to have a telephone in his home
  • to travel outside the borders of the US while still in office. TR took the battleship USS Louisiana to Panama in 1906.
  • to entertain an African-American in the White House, inviting Booker T. Washington to dinner
  • to win a Nobel Prize in any of the six categories - he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1906.

QUARTERLY QUOTES: 

Do what you can, with what you have,where you are.  Theodore Roosevelt

 
 He can who thinks he can, he can't who thinks he can't. This is an inexorable, indisputable law. Pablo Picasso

Welcome to the Images Of Justice Quarterly. #3

 
Inspirational images,
anecdotes and quotes for the legal profession. 

 

 Lincoln reflects on the war he has unleashed on America.

Lincoln's Resolve. (detail)
We here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain...
Original painting, 2004 private collection of Daniel E. Becnel, Jr. Reserve, LA

 

This issue featuring Abraham Lincoln and the capacity to reflect on one's thoughts and one's actions.

President Lincoln has often been described as being melancholic and even prone to severe bouts of depression. He was however a man capable of deep introspection and reflection and it was this capacity that gave him the courage of his convictions. At the end of each day he would sit motionless, for some length of time, in silent and profound thought. Lincoln was uncommon in his willingness to look inside himself in order to be the best leader he could be for the nation.

In his own words, "success comes from within, you must see it happen. Say to yourself "I will get there" and you will be well on the way to achieving your goal. To better judge what to do and how to do it, first know where you are and wither you are tending. Then stick to your purpose and you will soon feel as well as you ever did."


 
 
Lincoln reflects on the Battle of Gettysburg


 


 


 


 

 


 

 

 

 

 
LINCOLN REMEMBERS 
A house divided against itself cannot stand. Abraham Lincoln remembers,  six months after the Battle of Gettysburg. Original painting, 2003 private collection of the late John M. O’Quinn  Houston, Texas.

The world today desperately needs sound leadership and is waiting for all of us to bring out the best of what is inside. We can only know ourselves if we create "dedicated time” and make it a priority and a regular part of our day, to reflect and look within.

So pause, take a few deep breaths and listen to yourself. Like Lincoln, take the time needed to reflect, to gain fresh insight and new perspectives. Then watch yourself become the best lawyer you can possibly be.

QUARTERLY QUOTES:

Follow effective action with quiet reflection. From the quiet reflection will come even more effective action. Peter F Drucker

 
Reflect upon your present blessings - of which everyone has many - not on your past misfortunes, of which all have some. Charles Dickens

It is a great irony that throughout history women were almost totally excluded from the legal profession whilst nearly all the values that sustain the law come indisputably from the feminine realm.

 
 Original painting of Maat
 
Maat
Justice with no trace of vengeance.
Original painting 1998 in the private collection of Jim and Sharon Vigmond, Barrie Ontario.

 
Hailing from the earliest mythologies and sharing common attributes throughout the worlds great cultures, the wellsprings of conscience, equity, fairness, peace and protection are uniformly portrayed as women and it is important today to celebrate these values essential to the formation, maintenance and protection of human community.
 
 
Peace and Justice

 
Peace and Justice.
The olive branch of peace is offered to us all through the respect for truth and justice.
Original painting  2000, in the private collection of James Turk Radford, VA

 

Over the years reason has tended to become our sole basis of decision making. We need to add other factors such as memory, common sense, moral intuition, creativity and particularly ethics into our legal system. Now that over fifty percent of students graduating from law school are women it is increasingly important to affirm the deep heritage that is theirs in order to support the dreams and visions that women will contribute to this more rounded approach to our legal framework.

For though we have met the law and know it to be us, now we have met justice and know it to be she.

Quaterly Quotes:
