We don't normally quote Woodrow Wilson......

 ..............but when we do, it is because he says stuff like this:

The trouble with the theory is that government is not a machine, but a living thing. It falls, not under the theory of the universe, but under the theory of organic life. It is accountable to Darwin, not to Newton. It is modified by its environment, necessitated by its tasks, shaped to its functions by the sheer pressure of life.

-as excerpted from this Morgan Housel post
