Only this incident inseparable every custom must have, viz., that it be consonant to reason; for how long soever it hath continued, if it be against reason, it is of no force in law.
Reason is the life of the law; nay, the common law itself is nothing else but reason.... The law, which is perfection of reason.
And the law, that is the perfection of reason, cannot suffer anything that is inconvenient.
