    Beautiful quote and I think in today’s world so relevant. The last part really hits me, makes sense why we we should not kill so easily even when a person is guilty of many crimes “we do not know all ends.” It doesn’t men no punishment, it just means perhaps who lives and dies and why or for what, is beyond us.
