crime

A Quote by Robert Browning on crime, delay, frustration, life, losing, lovers, vices, virtue, and worth

I hear you reproach, "But delay was best, For their end was a crime." Oh, a crime will do As well, I reply, to serve for a test As a virtue golden through and through, Sufficient to vindicate itself And prove its worth at a moment's view! . . . . . . Let a man contend to the uttermost For his life's set prize, be it what it will! The counter our lovers staked was lost As surely as if it were lawful coin; And the sin I impute to each frustrate ghost Is-the unlit lamp and the ungirt loin, Though the end in sight was a vice, I say.

Robert Browning (1812 - 1889)

If you are ever going to lie, you go to jail for the lie rather than the crime. So believe me, don't ever lie.

A Quote by Richard Jeni on crime, justice, people, and poverty

I think that's how Chicago got started. A bunch of people in New York said, 'Gee, I'm enjoying the crime and the poverty, but it just isn't cold enough. Let's go west.'

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on crime, pleasure, and punishment

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

A Quote by Professor Zen on certainty, crime, education, novelty, people, and schools

I have a novel way to eliminate crime as we know it. Instead of passing sentences of a certain number of years, why don't we educate the inmates and not let them out until they have maintained at least a C average from a grade school to a high school curriculum. Do you know how many people we could actually keep in prison and for how long? Think about it.
