...it was the great law of compensation--the great law that regulates
Nature's heedless agents, and sees that when they make a mistake, they
shall at the self-same moment prevent that mistake from working evil consequences.

her ankle, fills your eyes so full of sand that you can't see it. Marvellous
are the works of Nature!
