Punishment Quotes

Those who worship God for the hope of gaining, theyre not real worshippers, theyre merchants. Those who worship God out of fear (of punishment), theyre slaves. And those who worship God to be grateful towards their creator, they are the free people, and their worship is a real one.

Husayn ibn

I get paid for seeing that my clients have every break the law allows. I have knowingly defended a number of guilty men. But the guilty never escape unscathed. My fees are sufficient punishment for anyone.

F. Lee Bailey

You are now bearing the punishment for the shortcomings of your world. Here, as in your world, there are benighted people who cannot tolerate thinking about things they are not accustomed to. But you realize that you are being treated here the same as there. If someone from this world came to yours with the audacity to call himself a man, your learned men would stifle him for being a monster or a monkey possessed by the Devil.

Cyrano Hercule Savinien de Bergerac

We are living even now among punishments and ruins.

Wendell Berry

You don't seem to appreciate the seriousness of your position. I defy anyone to live in that cell for a year and not appreciate the seriousness of his position. Yet the State has harsher punishments. You threaten like a dockside bully. How should I threaten? Like a Minister of State, with justice! Oh, justice is what you're threatened with. Then I'm not threatened.

Robert Oxton Bolt

The great danger of humane punishment is that people will come to accept state murder as something sanitary. I don't think bureaucracy should ever be entrusted with that kind of power.

Jerry Brown
