Quote by Charles Lamb
Lawyers, I suppose, were children once.
This quote suggests that even though they may now be professionals in the field of law, lawyers were once innocent children like everyone else. It highlights the fact that before entering their profession, lawyers had a childhood where they experienced growth, learning, and play, emphasizing their humanity and relatability. The quote may also serve as a reminder that behind their titles and expertise, lawyers have a shared universal background as individuals who once navigated the simple joys and challenges of childhood.
But all these hints at foreseeing what actually did happen on the French as well as on the Russian side are only conspicuous now because the event has justified them. If the event had not come to pass, these hints would have been forgotten, as thousands and millions of suggestions and supposition are now forgotten that were current at the period, but have been shown by time to be unfounded and so have been consigned to oblivion.
