The Laws of Nature are just, but terrible. There is no weak mercy in them. Cause and consequence are inseparable and inevitable. The elements have no forbearance. The fire burns, the water drowns, the air consumes, the earth buries. And perhaps it would be well for our race if the punishment of crimes against the Laws of Man were as inevitable as the punishment of crimes against the Laws of Nature /were Man as unerring in his judgments as Nature.
~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (February 27, 1807 - March 24, 1882)
~ Ronnie Barker (September 25, 1929 - October 03, 2005)
