The American television police procedural and legal drama Law & Order (1990–2010) follows the cases of a group of police detectives and prosecutors who represent the public interest in the criminal justice system. Known for its revolving cast, the original six actors to star in the program were no longer on the series when it ended in 2010, though Dann Florek has reprised his role as Donald Cragen for the spinoff series, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, since 1999. The longest-serving regular cast members include S. Epatha Merkerson as Lt. Anita Van Buren (1993–2010), Sam Waterston as EADA/DA Jack McCoy (1994–2010), Jerry Orbach as Detective Lennie Briscoe (1992–2004), Steven Hill as D.A. Adam Schiff (1990–2000), and Jesse L.

Simmons as Dr. Emil Skoda (1997–2004, 2010) and Carolyn McCormick as Dr. Elizabeth Olivet (1991–2009).

    The advice of their elders to young men is very apt to be as unreal as a list of the hundred best books.
    Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. (1841–1935)

    A man’s interest in a single bluebird is worth more than a complete but dry list of the fauna and flora of a town.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    An endless imbroglio
    Is law and the world,—
    Then first shalt thou know,
    That in the wild turmoil,
    Horsed on the Proteus,
    Thou ridest to power,
    And to endurance.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    In order to acquire a growing and lasting respect in society, it is a good thing, if you possess great talent, to give, early in your youth, a very hard kick to the right shin of the society that you love. After that, be a snob.
    Salvador Dali (1904–1989)

    The Nature of Familiar Letters, written, as it were, to the Moment, while the Heart is agitated by Hopes and Fears, on Events undecided, must plead an Excuse for the Bulk of a Collection of this Kind. Mere Facts and Characters might be comprised in a much smaller Compass: But, would they be equally interesting?
    Samuel Richardson (1689–1761)
