Crime and criminals

The study of crime begins with the knowledge of oneself. All that you despise, all that you loathe, all that you reject, all that you condemn and seek to convert by punishment springs from you.
- Miller, Henry
Crime and criminals Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Crime and criminals

1.
Every rascal is not a thief, but every thief is a rascal.
Aristotle

2.
Slums may well be breeding-grounds of crime, but middle-class suburbs are incubators of apathy and delirium.
Connolly, Cyril

3.
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

4.
Every society gets the kind of criminal it deserves. What is also true is that every community gets the kind of law enforcement it insists on.
Kennedy, John F.

5.
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

6.
He threatens many that hath injured one.
Jonson, Ben

7.
Crime generally punishes itself.
Goldsmith, Oliver

8.
There is a heroism in crime as well as in virtue. Vice and infamy have their altars and their religion.
Hazlitt, William

9.
Organized crime in America takes in over forty billion dollars a year. This is quite a profitable sum, especially when one consider that the Mafia spends very little for office supplies.
Allen, Woody

10.
The study of crime begins with the knowledge of oneself. All that you despise, all that you loathe, all that you reject, all that you condemn and seek to convert by punishment springs from you.
Miller, Henry

11.
We are often deterred from crime by the disgrace of others.
Horace

12.
From a single crime know the nation.
Virgil

13.
Successful crimes alone are justified.
Dryden, John

14.
My rackets are run on strictly American lines and they're going to stay that way.
Capone, Al

15.
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

16.
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

17.
A burglar who respects his art always takes his time before taking anything else.
Porter, O. Henry

18.
After all, crime is only a left-handed form of human endeavor.
Huston, John

19.
Squeeze human nature into the straitjacket of criminal justice and crime will appear.
Kraus, Karl

20.
No punishment has ever possessed enough power of deterrence to prevent the commission of crimes. On the contrary, whatever the punishment, once a specific crime has appeared for the first time, its reappearance is more likely than its initial emergence could ever have been.
Arendt, Hannah

21.
The faults of the burglar are the qualities of the financier.
Shaw, George Bernard

22.
A person with predatory instincts who has not sufficient capital to form a corporation.
Scott, Howard

23.
He reminds me of the man who murdered both his parents, and then when the sentence was about to be pronounced, pleaded for mercy on the grounds that he was orphan.
Lincoln, Abraham

24.
The common argument that crime is caused by poverty is a kind of slander on the poor.
Mencken, H. L.

25.
Many a man is saved from being a thief by finding everything locked up.
Howe, Edgar Watson

26.
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.
Bataille, Georges

27.
The world of crime is a last refuge of the authentic, uncorrupted, spontaneous event.
Boorstin, Daniel J.

28.
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

29.
Set a thief to catch a thief.
Proverb, French

30.
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

31.
Small crimes always precedes great ones.
Racine, Jean

32.
Crime and punishment grow out of one stem. Punishment is a fruit that, unsuspected, ripens with the flower of the pleasure that concealed it.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

33.
All criminals turn preachers under the gallows.
Proverb

34.
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

35.
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

36.
The thief. Once committed beyond a certain point he should not worry himself too much about not being a thief any more. Thieving is God's message to him. Let him try and be a good thief.
Butler, Samuel

37.
Crime and bad lives are the measure of a State's failure, all crime in the end is the crime of the community.
Wells, H.G.

38.
Crimes of which a people is ashamed constitute its real history. The same is true of man.
Genet, Jean

39.
Crime expands according to our willingness to put up with it.
Farber, Barry J.

40.
One crime has to be concealed by another.
Seneca

41.
We may live without friends; we may live without books. But civilized men cannot live without cooks.
Meredith, Owen

42.
One crime is everything, two is nothing.
Deluzy, Madame Dorothe

43.
It is because they took the easy way out that rivers, and people, go crooked.
Peterson, Jill

44.
For centuries the death penalty, often accompanied by barbarous refinements, has been trying to hold crime in check; yet crime persists. Why? Because the instincts that are warring in man are not, as the law claims, constant forces in a state of equilibrium.
Camus, Albert

45.
In times of trouble leniency becomes crime.
Proverb

46.
The lyricism of marginality may find inspiration in the image of the outlaw, the great social nomad, who prowls on the confines of a docile, frightened order.
Foucault, Michel

47.
Many commit the same crime with a different destiny; one bears a cross as the price of his villainy, another wears a crown.
Juvenal, (Decimus Junius Juvenalis)

48.
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

49.
Save a thief from the gallows and he will cut your throat.
Proverb, French

50.
Stripped of ethical rationalizations and philosophical pretensions, a crime is anything that a group in power chooses to prohibit.
Adler, Freda
