Best Quotes about Crime and criminals

1.
If poverty is the mother of crime, lack of good sense is the father.
La Bruyere, Jean De

2.
Crime generally punishes itself.
Goldsmith, Oliver

3.
There are crimes which become innocent and even glorious through their splendor, number and excess.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

4.
Successful crimes alone are justified.
Dryden, John

5.
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

6.
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

7.
The greatest crime in the world is not developing your potential. When you do what you do best, you are helping not only yourself, but the world.
Williams, Roger

8.
He who commits injustice is ever made more wretched than he who suffers it.
Plato

9.
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

10.
We cannot be sure that we ought not to regard the most criminal country as that which in some aspects possesses the highest civilization.
Ellis, Havelock

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

12.
A burglar who respects his art always takes his time before taking anything else.
Porter, O. Henry

13.
Slums may well be breeding-grounds of crime, but middle-class suburbs are incubators of apathy and delirium.
Connolly, Cyril

14.
Stripped of ethical rationalizations and philosophical pretensions, a crime is anything that a group in power chooses to prohibit.
Adler, Freda

15.
There is a heroism in crime as well as in virtue. Vice and infamy have their altars and their religion.
Hazlitt, William

16.
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

17.
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.

18.
Abscond. To move in a mysterious way, commonly with the property of another.
Bierce, Ambrose

19.
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

20.
Locks keep out only the honest.
Proverb, Jewish

21.
Crimes of which a people is ashamed constitute its real history. The same is true of man.
Genet, Jean

22.
One crime has to be concealed by another.
Seneca

23.
One crime is everything, two is nothing.
Deluzy, Madame Dorothe

24.
The faults of the burglar are the qualities of the financier.
Shaw, George Bernard

25.
The infectiousness of crime is like that of the plague.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

26.
Small crimes always precedes great ones.
Racine, Jean

27.
In times of trouble leniency becomes crime.
Proverb

28.
There is no crime of which I do not deem myself capable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

29.
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

30.
Every rascal is not a thief, but every thief is a rascal.
Aristotle

31.
It is because they took the easy way out that rivers, and people, go crooked.
Peterson, Jill

32.
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)

33.
All criminals turn preachers under the gallows.
Proverb

34.
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

35.
Many a man is saved from being a thief by finding everything locked up.
Howe, Edgar Watson

36.
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

37.
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

38.
After all, crime is only a left-handed form of human endeavor.
Huston, John

39.
We may live without friends; we may live without books. But civilized men cannot live without cooks.
Meredith, Owen

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

41.
Like art and politics, gangsterism is a very important avenue of assimilation into society.
Doctorow, E. L.

42.
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

43.
From a single crime know the nation.
Virgil

44.
Save a thief from the gallows and he will cut your throat.
Proverb, French

45.
We are often deterred from crime by the disgrace of others.
Horace

46.
The truth of the matter is that muggers are very interesting people.
Winner, Michael

47.
Today more Americans are imprisoned for drug offenses than for property crimes
Will, George F.

48.
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

49.
The world of crime is a last refuge of the authentic, uncorrupted, spontaneous event.
Boorstin, Daniel J.

50.
