--Old Louisiana Civil Code Article 2451, "Sale of a Hope"It also happens sometimes that an uncertain hope is sold; as the fisher sells a haul of his net before he throws it. . . .
--John Heywood (1497–1580)Let the world slide, let the world go;
A fig for care, and a fig for woe!
If I can't pay, why, I can owe,
And death makes equal the high and low.
