    "In aviation it is often stated that it is better to be disappointed on the ground, than in the air. The origin of the quote is based upon the results of a thorough pre-flight review of the prevailing situational circumstances. When thrusted into litigation, preparation is essential in order to know where to start, where you are going, and where you should not."
