Wendell Berry

This comes to mind every time I hear about the laws of supply and demand:

Rats and roaches live by competition under the laws of supply and demand. It is the privilege of human beings to live under the laws of justice and mercy. –Wendell Berry, Economy and Pleasure in What are People For? p. 135 (1990).
