Passage of the Day: Charles Dickens “Bleak House”: A Sarcastic Poke at the Law

“Equity sends questions to law, law sends questions back to equity: law finds it can’t do this, equity finds it can’t do that: neither can so much as say it can’t do anything, without this solicitor instructing and this counsel appearing for A, and that solicitor instructing and that counsel appearing for B; and so through the whole alphabet, like the history of the apple pie. And thus through years and years, and lives and lives, everything goes on constantly beginning over and over again, and nothing ever ends. And we can’t get out of the suit on any terms, for we are made parties to it and must be parties to it whether we like it or not.”

“Bleak House”, Charles Dickens 1812-1870
