April 6: Humor (Law and Lawyers)

Day Williams created this graphic depiction of this date.
April 6



Fisher v. Lowe (Mich. Ct. App. 1983) (“We thought that we would never see/A suit to compensate a tree”). Bonus points: Westlaw did the summary and headnotes in verse, too.



A lean compromise is better than a fat lawsuit.

~George Herbert, British poet



Next to the confrontation between two highly honed batteries of lawyers, jungle warfare is a stately minuet.

~Bill Veeck



All in all I’d rather have been a judge than a miner. And what’s more, being a miner, as soon as you are too old and tired and sick and stupid to do the job properly, you have to go. Well, the very opposite applies with judges.

~Peter Cook

April 6: The Lord’s Day

April 6
The Lord’s Day



By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done.

–Genesis 2:2-3



On a Sabbath, He passed through the grainfields. His disciples were picking heads of grain, rubbing them in their hands, and eating them. But some of the Pharisees said, “Why are you doing what is not lawful on the Sabbath?”

Jesus answered them, “Haven’t you read what David and those who were with him did when he was hungry—how he entered the house of God, and took and ate the sacred bread, which is not lawful for any but the priests to eat? He even gave some to those who were with him.” Then He told them, “The Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath.”

–Luke 6:1-5
