There are no rules, only exceptions.

Best Answer

There are no exceptions to a rule or it isn't a rule. That old saying, "The exception proves the rule", uses the word "prove" in the obsolete meaning of "tests"; it really means that a perceived exception tests the validity of a rule and, if the exception is real, then the rule is no longer a rule.

I have never understood the saying<br />
BTW Do you think Big Daddy and Yours Truly are related?

Best Answer

No exceptions!<br />
Rules are simply made to try and reinforce principles!<br />
for example "Killing is wrong!" may be a principle that you wish to live with.<br />
With thought and consideration, you may want to build rules that protect that principle.<br />
Almost invariably, for every rule, there is an alternative persperctive or view, hence the exception.<br />
