Russian fairytale plate

Then one of the judges of the city stood forth and said, Speak to us of Crime and Punishment.

And he answered, saying:

You cannot separate the just from the unjust and the good from the wicked;

For they stand together before the face of the sun even as the black thread and the white are woven together.

And when the black thread breaks, the weaver shall look into the whole cloth, and he shall examine the loom also.

The Prophet, by Kahlil Gibran
