What man shall there be among you, that shall have one sheep, and if it fall into a pit on the sabbath day, will he not lay hold on it, and lift it out? How much then is a man better than a sheep? Wherefore it is lawful to do well on the sabbath days.
There still remains, to mortifya wit, The many-headed monster of the pit.Alexander Pope

There are no checks and balances if the gov is wrong, if a private entrepreneur makes a mistake, he goes bankrupt, the losses are cut, if he bets wrong, he loses, if the gov bets wrong, they just get bigger, they just appropriate more money, it's a bottomless pit, because they either get it from the tax payers or run it off a printing press.peter schiff
You think this cruel? take it for a rule, No creature smarts so little as a fool. Let peals of laughter,Codrus! round thee break, Thou unconcerned canst hear the mighty crack. pit, box, and gallery in convulsions hurled, Thou stand'st unshook amidst a bursting world.Alexander Pope
The energies of our system will decay; the glory of the sun will be dimmed, and the earth, tideless and inert, will no longer tolerate the race which has for a moment disturbed its solitude. Man will go down into the pit and all his thoughts will perish.arthur balfour

And the priests looked down into the pit of injustice and they turned away their faces and said Our kingdom is not as the kingdom of this world Our life on earth is but a pilgrimage The soul lives on humility and patience at the same time screwing from the poor their last centime They settled down among their treasures and ate and drank with princes and to the starving they said Suffer Suffer as he suffered on the cross for it is the will of Godpeter weiss

There still remains to mortify a wit The many-headed monster of the pit.Alexander Pope
A lot of the time, I write a lot of angry stuff, but then I don't want to be a finger-pointer - I'd rather be a cheerleader than a judge . I don't want to preach as if I'm in some position of righteousness, but I do want to speak my mind and scream at the clouds and shout out of the pit of hopelessness that I sometimes think the human race is in.
And He shall smite the wicked, and plunge them into the fiery pit!
Oh, how often our all-wise Master puts us into a deep pit ot trial, to subdue our pride, or to tame our passions, or to break our stubborn self-will. Blessed is he who can look up into the countenance of Jesus, and honestly say: " Master, my rebellious self is dead, that Thou mayest live in me, and that 1 may live for Thee and Thee alone."
He that diggeth a pit, shall fall into it.

Food for powder, food for powder; they’ll fill a pit, as well as better.
Thet tells the story! Thet's wut we shall git By tryin' squirtguns on the burnin' pit; For the day never comes when it'll du To kick on dooty like a worn-out shoe.james russell lowell
