Crime and criminals Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Crime and criminals

1.
The common argument that crime is caused by poverty is a kind of slander on the poor.
Mencken, H. L.

2.
Crime expands according to our willingness to put up with it.
Farber, Barry J.

3.
The world of crime is a last refuge of the authentic, uncorrupted, spontaneous event.
Boorstin, Daniel J.

4.
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

5.
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

6.
Locks keep out only the honest.
Proverb, Jewish

7.
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

8.
In times of trouble leniency becomes crime.
Proverb

9.
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

10.
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.

11.
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

12.
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

13.
One crime has to be concealed by another.
Seneca

14.
After all, crime is only a left-handed form of human endeavor.
Huston, John

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.
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

17.
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

18.
There is a heroism in crime as well as in virtue. Vice and infamy have their altars and their religion.
Hazlitt, William

19.
There are crimes which become innocent and even glorious through their splendor, number and excess.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

20.
Crime generally punishes itself.
Goldsmith, Oliver

21.
Save a thief from the gallows and he will cut your throat.
Proverb, French

22.
The infectiousness of crime is like that of the plague.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

23.
He who commits injustice is ever made more wretched than he who suffers it.
Plato

24.
He has 63 ways of getting money, the most common and most honorable ones being stealing, thieving, and robbing.
Rabelais, Francois

25.
Every rascal is not a thief, but every thief is a rascal.
Aristotle

26.
He that is robbed, not wanting what is stolen, let him not know't, and he's notrobbed at all
Shakespeare, William

27.
The wrongdoer is more unfortunate than the man wronged.
Democritus

28.
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.

29.
The faults of the burglar are the qualities of the financier.
Shaw, George Bernard

30.
He has committed the crime who profits by it.
Seneca

31.
We are often deterred from crime by the disgrace of others.
Horace

32.
There is no crime of which I do not deem myself capable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

33.
One crime is everything, two is nothing.
Deluzy, Madame Dorothe

34.
He threatens many that hath injured one.
Jonson, Ben

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

36.
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

37.
The truth of the matter is that muggers are very interesting people.
Winner, Michael

38.
My rackets are run on strictly American lines and they're going to stay that way.
Capone, Al

39.
Crimes of which a people is ashamed constitute its real history. The same is true of man.
Genet, Jean

40.
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

41.
Squeeze human nature into the straitjacket of criminal justice and crime will appear.
Kraus, Karl

42.
A burglar who respects his art always takes his time before taking anything else.
Porter, O. Henry

43.
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

44.
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

45.
Today more Americans are imprisoned for drug offenses than for property crimes
Will, George F.

46.
Set a thief to catch a thief.
Proverb, French

47.
We may live without friends; we may live without books. But civilized men cannot live without cooks.
Meredith, Owen

48.
Like art and politics, gangsterism is a very important avenue of assimilation into society.
Doctorow, E. L.

49.
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

50.
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
