Miracles do not, in fact, break the laws of nature.
C. S. Lewis
Laws are like cobwebs, which may catch small flies, but let wasps and hornets break through.
We can allow satellites, planets, suns, universe, nay whole systems of universes, to be governed by laws, but the smallest insect, we wish to be created at once by special act.
Laws are the sovereigns of sovereigns.
There is no science in this world like physics. Nothing comes close to the precision with which physics enables you to understand the world around you. It's the laws of physics that allow us to say exactly what time the sun is going to rise. What time the eclipse is going to begin. What time the eclipse is going to end.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
Insurrection is an art, and like all arts has its own laws.
Tyrants have always some slight shade of virtue; they support the laws before destroying them.
There is not one single police officer in America that I am not afraid of and not one that I would trust to tell the truth or obey the laws they are sworn to uphold. I do not believe they protect me in any way.
There are times when even the most potent governor must wink at transgression, in order to preserve the laws inviolate for the future.
The world is full of strange phenomena that cannot be explained by the laws of logic or science. Dennis Rodman is only one example.
Seeking can become stressful when you apply the same laws that you apply in the material world - hard work, exacting plans, driving ambition, and attachment to outcome.
Man has made 32 million laws since the Commandments were handed down to Moses on Mount Sinai... but he has never improved on God's law.
Cecil B. DeMille
Human judges can show mercy. But against the laws of nature, there is no appeal.
Arthur C. Clarke

Laws against things like drugs are inhumane, and create an inhumane society and inhumane law enforcement. I know what's causing violence in America - the damn drug laws.
C. S. Lewis
