Crime Quotes

Growing old is like being increasingly penalized for a crime you haven't committed.

Teilhard de Chardin

I think crime pays. The hours are good, you meet a lot of interesting people, you travel a lot.

Woody Allen

The dominion of bad men is hurtful chiefly to themselves who rule, for they destroy their own souls by greater license in wickedness; while those who are put under them in service are not hurt except by their own iniquity. For to the just all the evils imposed on them by unjust rulers are not the punishment of crime, but the test of virtue. Therefore the good man, although he is a slave, is free; but the bad man, even if he reigns, is a slave, and that not of one man, but, what is far more grievous, of as many masters as he has vices; of which vices when the divine Scripture treats, it says, For of whom any man is overcome, to the same he is also the bond-slave.

St. Augustine of Hippo

Sant Sri Asaramji Bapu

The secret of great fortunes without apparent cause is a crime forgotten, for it was properly done.

Honor de Balzac

Stanley Baldwin, 1st Earl Baldwin of Bewdley

He is capable of any crime, from reviling the Classics to diverting water courses.

Ernest Brammah Smith

I have to come clean; I've broken a lot of laws, and the ones I haven't I've certainly thought about. I have sinned in thought, word, and deed. God forgive me. Actually God forgave me, but why would you? I'm here getting a doctorate, getting respectable, getting in the good graces of the powers that be, I hope it sends you students a powerful message: Crime does pay.

Paul David Hewson
