Famous Quote from Edward Gibbon,

Whenever the offence
inspires less horror
than the punishment,
the rigour of penal law
is obliged to give way
to the common feelings
of mankind.


Edward Gibbon (more quotes by Edward Gibbon or books by/about Edward Gibbon)

(1737-1794) English historian and Member of Parliament
