    The one I can think of off hand is "Everyone Must Die Sometime"

    The two certain things in life are death and taxes...and they come together with the death tax.  I can't think of an exception to the golden rule.

    I don't think there are any exceptions to gravity. It works like it's supposed to everywhere. There are no exceptions to the conservation of energy, otherwise we would have perpetual motion, and we don't. There's more.

    Rules are all about the art of the possible versus the impossible. Someone nearly always finds a way to break a rule. Death is inevitable, and life is fleeting, but there is no reason why we can't push some boundaries a bit to see will they stretch or bend more. What is real or not real any more? How can we know? Rules are reminders of what is possible. I don't see them as absolutes. I have ventured beyond one or two rules and was surprised by the outcome. I even had life changing experiences. But aging and death are all too absolute, alas...

    death is the only one that comes to mind. i'm sure there are others but i'm drawing a blank.
