But as some muskets so contrive it
  As oft to miss the mark they drive at,
    And though well aimed at dock or plover
      Bear wide, and kick their owners over.
      - John Trumbull (1), McFingal
         (canto I, l. 95)

The divine wrath is slow indeed in vengeance, but it makes up for its tardiness by the severity of the punishment.
  [Lat., Lento quidem gradu ad vindictam divina procedit ira, sed tarditatem supplicii gravitate compensat.]
      - Valerius Maximus I, 1, 3

The sword is ever suspended.
      - Voltaire (Francois Marie Arouet Voltaire)

Shall man alone, whose fate, whose final fate,
  Hangs on that hour, exclude it from his thoughts?
    I think of nothing else--I see, I feel it!
      All nature like an earthquake, trembling round!
        All deities, like summer's swarms on wing,
          All basking in the full meridian blaze!
            I see the Judge enthroned, the flaming guard!
              The volume open'd--open'd every heart!
                A sunbeam pointing out each secret thought!
                  No patron! intercessor none! now past
                    The sweet, the clement mediatorial hour!
                      For guilt no plea! to pain no pause! no bound!
                        Inexorable all! and all extreme!
      - Edward Young
