No one can say with certainty why it is better to preserve a life; that a virtuous way is a way to act. The law of Nature achieves without contriving effort, yet, without contriving it overcomes. It seldom speaks, and never asks, but is answered without a question. It is supplied with all its needs and is constantly at ease, because it follows its own plan, which cannot be understood easily by man. It casts its net both deep and wide, and, though coarse-meshed, it misses nothing that swims in the waters.
