"There are a thousand hacking at the branches of evil to one who is striking at the root, and it may be that he who bestows the largest amount of time and money on the needy is doing the most by his mode of life to produce that misery which he strives in vain to relieve." - Henry David Thoreau

ACCIDENT, n. An inevitable occurrence due to the action of immutable natural laws.

Ambrose Bierce again from his Devil's Dictionary.

If you think about it there is no such thing as an accident. For something to happen accidently is impossible. It's only our ignorance of the factors involved.

If it doesn't go in easy, use a hammer.

If it doesn't come out easy, use a crow bar.
