Catastrophes in law

     "When the laws regulating human society are so formed as to come into collision with the nature of things, and in particular with the fundamental realities of human nature, they will end by producing an impossible situation which, unless the laws are altered, will issue in . . . catastrophes. . . ."

     Dorothy Sayers, "The 'laws' of nature and opinion," chap. 1 in The mind of the maker (New York:  Harcourt, Brace, 1941), 8.
