In issue herein are property and property rights, a familiar subject of controversy and a wellspring of enormous conflict that has led not only to protracted legal entanglements but to even more bitter consequences, like strained relationships and even the forfeiture of lives.

– Justice Abraham Sarmiento, Sr. in Adille v. CA, G.R. No. L-44546, January 29, 1988
