It is easy to kill someone with a slash of a sword. It is hard to be impossible for others to cut down.

Impossibility is the state of something not being possible. In law, such a state of affairs is a defense to a breach of contract — for example, a contract to pay painters to paint a house may be voided as impossible if the house burns to the ground the day before the painters arrive.
