Not all laws, but an unjust law is no law at all. I have no plans to comply with any gun collection law (buyback, confiscation, whatever) for example.
But I do agree that "Rules were made to be broken" is not a very wise saying. Lots of rules were NOT made to be broken. Like keeping your finger off the trigger, every gun is always loaded, and other rules that have a genuine safety purpose.
In Cinder's case, her rules involve personal choices. She chooses to comply because the consequences are high enough and the benefit of breaking them is not. Sounds like a wise decision. Maybe she can try using mead for crockpot cooking the next time she visits Trip!
