A parable for lawyers (with apologies to Loren Eiseley, 1907-1977)

One morning, in the calm that follows after a storm, a young woman went down to the beach. On the sand lay thousands of starfish which had been washed onto the shore. She picked up one of the stranded starfish and feeling its life force in her fingertips, she gently threw it back into the water. And so she continued along the shore throwing the starfish back into the water one by one.

As she carried on her way she met a man who stopped her and said, 'That's very sweet, but what do you think you are doing? There are hundreds of starfish lying on this beach and you can't save them all. You won't be able to make a difference!'

The young woman bent down and picked up another starfish. Looking the man straight in the eye, she threw the starfish as far as she could into the sea. As she held him in her gaze she said, 'Really? Well, I made a difference for that one!'
