    Re: Proverb

    I don't think these are quite the same...

    Any port in a storm implies that you are sneaking a safe place. In an emergency, we will accept help from any source and in any place, even from an unpleasant person.

    Necessity knows no law implies that you must do what you have to do to survive even if you have to break a law or rule. Two things are without law, God and necessity.
