"That the laws of the universe should be repealed"

For sorrow there is no remedy provided by nature; it is often occasioned by accidents irreparable, and dwells upon objects that have lost or changed their existence; it requires what it cannot hope, that the laws of the universe should be repealed; that the dead should return, or the past should be recalled.”

That's Dr. Samuel Johnson writing in The Rambler #47 via Anecdotal Evidence
