There is no mercy in letting the child have its own will, plunging headlong to destruction with the bits in its mouth. There is no mercy to society nor to the criminal if the wrong is not repressed and the right vindicated.

We may deliver his body from the prison, but not at the expense of justice nor to his own injury.

They hated men because they needed husbands, and they loathed the men they chased away for going.
