Oliver Wendell Holmes said it...

We equally believed that those who stood against us held just as sacred convictions that were the opposite of ours and we respected them as every man with a heart must respect those who give all for their belief”

--Oliver Wendell Holmes

I finally finished watching Ken Burns' stunning documentary of the Civil War. I was struck by this quote from Oliver Wendell Holmes which prefaced the 8th episode of the series. This is something that we should try to remember in litigation, mediation and politics.
