It being All Hallow’s Eve, I was reminded by this post on Lallands Peat Worrier‘s blog about a line in Robert Burns’ Tam o’ Shanter of some relevance to the legal profession. Tam is peering into the haunted Alloway Kirk and spies, among other horrors:
Three lawyers’ tongues, turn’d inside out,
Wi’ lies seam’d like a beggar’s clout;
A timely admonition, if one were needed, about the importance of honesty in business?
