Nature's Preference

"...she wished she could have gone before [her father], though she knew in her heart that nature has a preference for a particular order: parents die, then children die. But it was a harsh design, offering little relief from pain, for being in accord with it means that the fortunate find themselves orphaned."

- Charles Frazier, Cold Mountain
