Today's Prison Quote
Don't let us rejoice in punishment, even when the hand of God alone inflicts it. The best of us are but poor wretches, just saved from shipwreck. Can we feel anything but awe and pity when we see a fellow-passenger swallowed by the waves?
~George Eliot (pseudonym of Mary Ann Evans Cross)
