Counsel Quotes

Yoda
Ready are you? What know you of ready? For eight hundred years have I trained Jedi. My own counsel will I keep on who is to be trained. A Jedi must have the deepest commitment, the most serious mind. This one a long time have I watched. All his life has he looked away... to the future, to the horizon. Never his mind on where he was. Hmm? What he was doing. Hmph. Adventure. Heh. Excitement. Heh. A Jedi craves not these things. You are reckless.
Yoda

#Counsel

My task is to respond to the two hours of uninterrupted testimony from the independent counsel, as well as to his four-year, $45 million investigation, which has included at least 28 attorneys, 78 FBI agents and an undisclosed number of private investigators ... And I have 30 minutes to do this. It's a daunting exercise, but let me begin with the simple but powerful truth that nothing in this overkill of an investigation amounts to a justification for the impeachment of the president of the United States.

The Independent Counsel has sought, again, to prosecute Ms. McDougal, and this indictment will now be tried to a jury. Independent Counsel Starr, through his public relations officer, has seen fit to assert that the president, by his public statements, has somehow improperly 'injected' himself into the investigation of Ms. McDougal. This claim is wholly false. The president's statements have been both accurate and appropriate. Ms. McDougal has at all times been represented by her own counsel. It is for the public to judge what the Independent Counsel's motivations may be.

 Bible,
Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the LORD, and their works are in the dark, and they say, Who seeth us? and who knoweth us? / Surely your turning of things upside down shall be esteemed as the potter's clay: for shall the work say of him that made it, He made me not? or shall the thing framed say of him that framed it, He had no understanding? / Is it not yet a very little while, and Lebanon shall be turned into a fruitful field, and the fruitful field shall be esteemed as a forest? / And in that day shall the deaf hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity, and out of darkness.
