Crime and criminals

Crime seems to change character when it crosses a bridge or a tunnel. In the city, crime is taken as emblematic of class and race. In the suburbs, though, it's intimate and psychological -- resistant to generalization, a mystery of the individual soul.
- Ehrenreich, Barbara

Best Quotes about Crime and criminals

1.
How vainly shall we endeavor to repress crime by our barbarous punishment of the poorer class of criminals so long as children are reared in the brutalizing influences of poverty, so long as the bite of want drives men to crime.
George, Henry

2.
He threatens many that hath injured one.
Jonson, Ben

3.
Repudiating the virtues of your world, criminals hopelessly agree to organize a forbidden universe. They agree to live in it. The air there is nauseating: they can breathe it.
Genet, Jean

Today more Americans are imprisoned for drug offenses than for property crimes
Will, George F.

A burglar who respects his art always takes his time before taking anything else.
Porter, O. Henry

6.
The faults of the burglar are the qualities of the financier.
Shaw, George Bernard

A crime persevered in a thousand centuries ceases to be a crime, and becomes a virtue. This is the law of custom, and custom supersedes all other forms of law.
Twain, Mark

Commit a crime, and the earth is made of glass.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

The common argument that crime is caused by poverty is a kind of slander on the poor.
Mencken, H. L.

Crime is terribly revealing. Try and vary your methods as you will, your tastes, your habits, your attitude of mind, and your soul is revealed by your actions.
Christie, Agatha

17.
There is no society known where a more or less developed criminality is not found under different forms. No people exists whose morality is not daily infringed upon. We must therefore call crime necessary and declare that it cannot be non-existent, that the fundamental conditions of social organization, as they are understood, logically imply it.
Durkheim, Emile

18.
There is a new billboard outside Time Square. It keeps an up-to minute count of gun-related crimes in New York. Some goofball is going to shoot someone just to see the numbers move.
Letterman, David

19.
He has committed the crime who profits by it.
Seneca

20.
We may live without friends; we may live without books. But civilized men cannot live without cooks.
Meredith, Owen

21.
The wrongdoer is more unfortunate than the man wronged.
Democritus

22.
All, all is theft, all is unceasing and rigorous competition in nature; the desire to make off with the substance of others is the foremost -- the most legitimate -- passion nature has bred into us and, without doubt, the most agreeable one.
Sade, Marquis De

23.
The man who is admired for the ingenuity of his larceny is almost always rediscovering some earlier form of fraud. The basic forms are all known, have all been practiced. The manners of capitalism improve. The morals may not.
Galbraith, John Kenneth

24.
One usually dies because one is alone, or because one has got into something over one's head. One often dies because one does not have the right alliances, because one is not given support. In Sicily the Mafia kills the servants of the State that the State has not been able to protect.
Falcone, Giovanni

25.
The fear of burglars is not only the fear of being robbed, but also the fear of a sudden and unexpected clutch out of the darkness.
Canetti, Elias

26.
The infectiousness of crime is like that of the plague.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

27.
Crime expands according to our willingness to put up with it.
Farber, Barry J.

28.
Crime when it succeeds is called virtue.
Seneca

29.
If poverty is the mother of crime, lack of good sense is the father.
La Bruyere, Jean De

30.
Crimes of which a people is ashamed constitute its real history. The same is true of man.
Genet, Jean

31.
Stripped of ethical rationalizations and philosophical pretensions, a crime is anything that a group in power chooses to prohibit.
Adler, Freda

32.
There are crimes which become innocent and even glorious through their splendor, number and excess.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

33.
Abscond. To move in a mysterious way, commonly with the property of another.
Bierce, Ambrose

34.
Like art and politics, gangsterism is a very important avenue of assimilation into society.
Doctorow, E. L.

Connolly, Cyril

37.
Crime seems to change character when it crosses a bridge or a tunnel. In the city, crime is taken as emblematic of class and race. In the suburbs, though, it's intimate and psychological -- resistant to generalization, a mystery of the individual soul.
Ehrenreich, Barbara

38.
Small crimes always precedes great ones.
Racine, Jean

39.
Successful crimes alone are justified.
Dryden, John

40.
Want of money and the distress of a thief can never be alleged as the cause of his thieving, for many honest people endure greater hardships with fortitude. We must therefore seek the cause elsewhere than in want of money, for that is the miser's passion, not the thief s.
Blake, William

41.
All criminals turn preachers under the gallows.
Proverb

42.
Crime is a fact of the human species, a fact of that species alone, but it is above all the secret aspect, impenetrable and hidden. Crime hides, and by far the most terrifying things are those which elude us.
