I first heard the expression, "a life lived greatly in the law," as I first learned of many important things: in Guido Calabresi's torts class. And I'd like to talk with you a little bit this evening about what that means: "a life lived greatly in the law." The most important thing, I think, actually has not so much to do with law. It ultimately is about "a life lived greatly." And I think that that greatness of living comes from a greatness of soul. I don't think I can put it any better-I wouldn't try to.
