Famous quotes containing the words law of, nature and/or law:

    No. I am not the law in your mind,
    the grandfather of watchfulness.
    I am the law of your members,
    the kindred of blackness and impulse.
    See. Your hand shakes.
    It is not palsy or booze.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    Retaliation is related to nature and instinct, not to law. Law, by definition, cannot obey the same rules as nature.
    Albert Camus (1913–1960)

    The end of law is not to abolish or restrain, but to preserve and enlarge freedom. For in all the states of created beings capable of laws, where there is no law, there is no freedom.
    John Locke (1632–1704)
